A Worksop woman is set to experience a taste of stardom by appearing in a new nationwide TV advert for Britain’s biggest bingo site, Tombola.
Elizabeth Nicholson, 35, who is a hotel manager, was shortlisted from hundreds of players from around the country to make it through to star in the new advert.
Elizabeth will make her TV debut on Monday, August 24 when the new advert is aired across the UK for the first time.
The advert focuses on a group of genuine players and chat moderators enjoying bingo on their smartphones, in a fun and friendly environment.
Elizabeth has been an avid member of Tombola for just under a year but said that she never expected for a second to be successful.
“When I got the call saying I had got through, I had to physically pinch myself,” she said.
“Things like this don’t happen to ordinary people like me.
“Even whilst travelling to the filming location, I still couldn’t believe it.
“I feel proud that I have done this for myself.
“As a hotel manager, I am used to working with the public.
“But the people I met during filming were truly amazing.
“I’m a new Tombola player so didn’t think that I would get picked.
“But it goes to show they pick a wide variety of players.”
Elizabeth also went on to explain how local customers of the Worksop hotel she manages are exceptionally proud of her.
“They want a special screening in the hotel when the ad first appears on TV,” she continued.
“I feel like a mini celebrity already.”
“We are really proud of our latest advert – thanks to the players, the ads have real energy which we believe genuinely reflects the sense of community on Tombola,” added Dawn-Elizabeth Howe, head of marketing at the company.
Hopeful Tombola players entered online to take part in the TV adverts.
Elizabeth attended the audition and was one of 25 successful chosen players.
