Gala Bingo set world record for game with world’s biggest bingo balls

Gala Bingo World Record

Gala Bingo recently set a world record by having a game with the world's largest bingo balls on the set of Coronation Street.

The scenes on the former street would make former pub landlady, Annie Walker’s hair curl. In an activity unlike any seen before on the former set of Coronation Street, special guests and TV personalities pitched in to help make a huge success of’s big bingo balls charity GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ attempt for the game of Bingo with the largest set of bingo balls.

The leading bingo brand used the launch of its newest game, Corrie Bouncy Balls as an opportunity to help raise money and awareness for the Male Cancer Awareness Campaign. Director, Alison Digges tells us, “We wanted to do something special for the launch of ‘Corrie Bouncy Balls’, something involving balls! We love the innovative, educational approach MCAC takes, so we’re delighted to work with them. And an official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ attempt seemed like a good way to get everyone’s attention. So we organised a bingo game at Coronation Street The Tour in Manchester, invited some ex-cast members and raised money for charity, all at the same time! We are delighted with the result”

MCAC aims to help dispel the culture of embarrassment that discourages men from openly discussing cancers associated with intimate areas of the body.

This one-off, extra special bingo game kicked off on the famous cobbled streets of Weatherfield on the 18th of July.  Amidst much hilarity, the world’s largest set of bingo balls 90 custom-made, gaint bingo balls were ejected from the house windows onto the street as This Morning’s Alison Hammondcalled the numbers until the house was called!

For several weeks preceding the event, players at had been able to compete for tickets to be part of this wacky event. Their efforts raised well over £10,000 for the Male Cancer Awareness Charity. And with the official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the largest set of bingo balls safely in the bag, with much pomp and ceremony, a huge novelty check was presented to model and MCAC ambassador, Rhian Sugden.

Ecstatic fans of the show were able to tour the iconic former set and they even got to meet past cast legends  Shobna Gulati (Sunita Alahan), Sherrie Hewson (Maureen Webster), Steven Arnold (Ashley Peacock) and Adam Rickitt (Nick Tilsley). A great event for an even greater cause!
