Meet Britain's luckiest bingo player!

He’s always lucky
BINGO fanatic Brian Parker is top of the shop after clocking up nearly 90 wins this year.
The lucky granddad-of-three has celebrated 88, or two fat ladies-worth, of victorious nights – and more than £10,000 of winnings in Huddersfield in 2008.
Brian, 73, said: “I’ve always been lucky. I think I must have been born with a brass spoon in my mouth.”
The former brickyard worker, of Nabcroft Lane, Crosland Moor, has been playing at Mecca in Folly Hall since it opened 10 years ago.
He even has his own lucky seat in the corner of the hall near the ladies’ loos.
Brian said he had always been lucky and he seems to be getting luckier – his streak this year follows 37 wins in 2006 and 42 last year.
His record number of wins in one night was six, totalling about £1,500.
