Videos were sent in from bingo lovers across the country, from Mecca customers and team members to celebrities including Bobby Norris, Duncan James, Anthony Costa, Sandi Bogle, Robin Windsor, Jess Impiazzi and Susan Hill, who all chipped in to wish Mecca a very special 60th birthday.

We are thrilled to have broken this Guinness World Records title, which simply shows the love we receive every day from our bingo lovers and the importance of Mecca Bingo throughout the nation. We couldn't be more proud!"
