Majestic Bingo is to welcome back TV crews this February as filming begins on an eight-episode series of Full House, following a “really encouraging” response to the August 2020 pilot episode.

 

The BBC documentary was first filmed at Majestic Tonypandy in 2019, with its stories of the club’s staff and customers receiving 21 percent share of the available audience when it was broadcast last year.

“I always make a point of exploring all of the ideas or approaches that we receive and when Majestic was contacted by a TV production company in the early part of 2019 we arranged to meet and hear a bit more about what was being proposed,” said MD Mark Jepp.

“I understand why some parts of the industry may choose to adopt an ultra-cautious approach to requests to film, but from my perspective I think it’s important to develop ideas that can promote bingo as fun, great value for money entertainment and help profile the Majestic brand.”

Fixed rig cameras will be set up in the club on 28 February before derigging on 6 March, with the production crew predicting another positive experience.

Speaking after the pilot, series producer Jacci Parry said “of all the programmes I’ve made, I can honestly say this is the most fun I’ve had at ‘work’.”
