Snaps from Wink’s TV Commercial Shoot featuring REAL Winkers!
Joseph, Cat, Andrea and her husband Kevin arrived at Paddington Station on the morning of 17th November ready for some action. Earlier that week, their winking faces were selected among dozens of participants to participate in Wink Bingo’s new TV ad, and the shoot was scheduled for that day in London.
Before arriving at the set, the players met their host, Mark from Wink, and had brunch at the Union Bar & Grill. After all, who can wink properly on an empty stomach?

Once everyone got acquainted, it was time to head for the studio where the commercial was being filmed. By now good friends, our players were met with 22 professional actors & dancers they’d spend the day with, showing off their moves for the camera. The perfect tune was selected: a special version Wink Bingo commissioned of Ottawan’s classic D.I.S.C.O., with the letters B.I.N.G.O!
Those famous colorful circles in the making!
The Winkers got to meet a celebrity, too: say hello to Harrison who stars in the ad, and also happens to be the nephew of Shadow, the dog that appears in Wink Bingo’s famous dancing dog ad!
He’s got this charisma thing down for sure!
Filming can be hectic, but our stars managed to sneak in a few games of Wink Bingo on their mobiles!
Each Winker got their time in the make-up chair for a glam session (though they didn’t need much done!) and just like that – stars were born!
Andrea (jiggyjoe) loves her new look!
Cat (catwarne25) needed very few touch ups!
On their turn, each player got up in front of the camera and, by the looks of it, weren’t nervous whatsoever – they sure gave the pros a run for their money. Andrea’s is even considering a new career as an on-camera pro – we’re fully behind you, Andrea!

Close to 7 PM, it’s a wrap! And that meant heading back to Union Bar & Grill for dinner. Give them a round of applause in the comments, and be sure to check out their camera debut on Facebook!
