If you're a fan of Soaps then you'll know that this week the iconic Peggy Mitchell of Eastenders passed away. Peggy, as played by Dame Barbara Windsor, returned to Albert Square for one last hoorah. She revealed to Phil she was dying before finally taking an overdose and hallucinating about Pat Butcher. It was an emotional end for one of soap's legendary characters.
One thing that intrigued us was whether Jackpotjoy would pass any comment about proceedings. When Peggy Mitchell left Albert Square (the first time) she took on the mantel of The Queen Of Bingo in an advert which pretty much appeared as soon as the doof doofs were heard on the closing credits. This time though there was nothing which when you think about it is pretty respectful to Barbara.
However, a day after Peggy's demise, Jackpotjoy did use the #EELastOrders hashtag to flag up a recent interview with The Queen Of Bingo. Arnie poses questions to Babs regarding her role as Jackpotjoy's celebrity endorser. The first question asked was about which male Barbara would like to take her out for dinner? She chose David Walliams, but you'll have to watch the video to find out why.
Now we suspect Barbara is a big fan of Little Britain because later on in the interview she's asked who she would like to succeed her as The King or Queen of Bingo. We think this question took her a bit by surprise - as though she'd not contemplated losing the role. Anyway after a think she picked Matt Lucas as the person she'd like to see takeover!
Actually we think this is a great idea - but with a bit of embellishment. We'd love to see Matt Lucas take the role but as Marjorie Dawes. Forget leading Fat Fighters, Queen Marjorie can encourage people to eat dust whilst enjoying a game or two of bingo.
There are some Eastenders references in the interview - but there's nothing about the recent episodes. Now that Peggy Mitchell is no more, we hope to see Barbara in her Queen Of Bingo role a lot more.
