Singer, reality TV star and famed ex-husband Peter Andre has made his return to television this year, but this time on the small(er) screen of YouTube. Life With The Andres has been releasing weekly on The Sun’s Youtube channel, and offers a rare look into the life of Peter Andre and his family after 7 years away from the cameras.
In the latest episode, Peter hops on a Zoom call to catch up with some of his tour pals, including his band members and backup dancers. Well, as it turns out, Peter is now quite the bingo fan as they chose to have a session of virtual bingo at one of the UK’s best online bingo sites, MrQ!
Virtual bingo has been a popular activity ever since the UK went into lockdown, with people worldwide re-discovering bingo as a fun and family friendly game for people of all ages. Google searches for ‘virtual bingo’ rocketed near the start of lockdown too too, which Google highlighted in a tweet.

We've got a handy Virtual Bingo Guide complete with downloadable resources, check it out and see why it's been so popular! People have been playing their virtual bingo games over Zoom like Will and Kate’s bingo game, and some have even opted to play bingo with their entire street - though Peter chose to host his game using MrQ’s proprietary bingo software.
It seemed like the world of online bingo was new to Peter, who was impressed by the speed of the automated numbers and how the site handled all his tickets. Peter even came away victorious on one game, netting a cool 87p for a line win, not bad for 5p a ticket. After the games were finished, Peter said that it was the “most random but fun thing [he’s] ever done” - high praise!
Peter likely got wind of MrQ from some of his fellow reality TV stars, as the site has been hosting regular games of celebrity bingo with stars like Love Island's Cara De La Hoyde and TOWIE stars Amy Childs and Harry Derbidge.
