That horrible orange, smart/casual rugby player is apparently a keen player of internet bingo.

  1. The bones are showing. This isn’t even a PR blurb, it’s the rough notes for a blurb that were left to the work-experience kid to fill in.

  2. “one of the most masculine men to have appeared on our TV screens, Gavin confidently affirms that it is finally ok for men to partake in a bit of online bingo”

    Oh ffs. Come back when Fred Dibnah, Dick Strawbridge, Brian Cant, Burt Reynolds, Bear Grylls, Windsor Davies, Leslie Phillips or even Lionel Bloody Blair are involved and I might believe you, but not Gavin ‘Moisturises daily’ Henson. He’ll be advertising Gillette next.

  3. Second the ‘masculine men’ comment from GigerPunk. It’s not for nothing Henson’s ex-team are known as the Hairspreys, but he was too poofy to be even with them so he went to lah-di-dah France instead.

  4. I bet they haven’t even switched on that laptop.

  5. Really? Bingo on the internet you say? And advertised on the telly, like the real bingo? Next you’ll be telling me it’s fully licensed by the goverment of gibraltar!

    Yes sir, and it’s gender neutral.

    What did you fucking call me?

  6. I’ve just seen the TV ad for this.

    Nobody has invented a word to describe just how bad it was, so I’ll have to do it instead:

    It was a right load of waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasaaankunt!

    • Haven’t seen the bloody ad yet but it can’t be far off. At least I have my vocal response lined up now, cheers phorenzik.

  7. Wouldn’t, would, would

  8. DeepFriedWheelchair

    Those hateful cushions. Those hateful, evil cushions. When my time comes, and the world is mine, I shall have all those who gave money for those cushions brought before me and systematically destroyed.

  9. Gambling doesn’t really do much for me, so I will not be playing Brits Bingo for that and the following reasons.

    1. Have no idea who Gavin Henson is on this side of the pond.
    2. It’s government approved.
    3. Sounds a bit too “gender neutral”.
    4. Gibraltar? Are you serious?
    5. Don’t own a laptop computer.
    6. Those bastards from Dragonfish Software.
    7. Assume that Brits Bingo is as skill-free as the American version.
    8. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasaaankunt!

  10. Gavin Henson, on a bed with a “lady” sporting the Penge Mum look. No wonder Charlotte Church left him. Her thumbs look dangerous.

  11. I disagree with you lot. This is genius. The trouble I’ve always had with bingo sites is their gender bias.

    It leaves folks me with the feeling of being in the wrong bathroom.

  12. DeepFriedWheelchair

    I find that I’m never in the wrong bathroom, whichever one it is.

  13. I think we might be missing the subsequent photos where she stands up, drops her jeans and slowly lowers herself onto the complete length of his forearm, all while he keeps playing internet bingo.
