1st May 2022

BRITAIN'S Got Talent fans last night saw humble singer Linda John Pierre wow the judges with her powerhouse voice.

But many fans spotted that she is already well-known to TV viewers – for appearing in the advert for Mecca Bingo.

She's shown in the big-money ads as 'Mabel' where she is shown dancing around her living room in the brand's "Are you ready to play?" campaign.

The fact didn't escape Britain's Got Talent viewers, with one tweeting: "That's not Linda… that's Mabel.. she's always bingo ready!!"

Several others spotted her from the Mecca ad, with another tweeting: "Came on Twitter just to see if anyone else thought the same or was I going mad! She's always bingo ready!"

Even the bingo giant's official account got involved after she bagged top marks on the show.

It's not against the rules of Britain's Got Talent to be a working performer and she spoke openly about her career in entertainment on the show.

She said: "I'm a singer. I've done theatre, I've done tours, I've done living out of a suitcase for so many years. But Britain's Got Talent is the absolute dream.

"I thought: 'Do you know what Linda? Go for it.' That would be like the pinnacle."
