There are some real darling characters lying amongst the D bingo calls as well as one or two calls with an interesting background. But first if you want to continue to read this article you should get Down on your Knees. Don't worry we're only joking this is actually the call for the number 43!
Here is one that has two possible explanations both relating to war periods. Doctor's Orders some say originates from the Second World War when British doctors wrote sick notes which included a 9pm curfew and if the patient was found outside after 9pm they had violated the sick note. Doctor's Orders is number 9 in the bingo calls. However there is another story which goes back to the Great War where they say that there was something called the “number nine” pill. This was prescribed for pretty much anything and everything.
Whether you love them or hate them you probably still know the famous Abba song Dancing Queen, young and sweet and in bingo number 17. Staying in entertainment we have the Irish born considered British entertainer, Danny La Rue who died on 31st May 2009. The great drag artist and singer Danny La Rue is the number 52 in bingo. 52 can also be called as Chicken Vindaloo, Weeks in a Year, The Lowland Div(ision) or Pack 'o Cards.
Another entertainer the British actress and sex symbol Diana Dors who is the bingo call for number 44. However if she hadn't changed her name as recommended she wouldn't be number 44. Diana Dors was originally Diana Fluck and one of her comments about her name change was “they asked me to change my name. I suppose they were afraid that if my real name Diana Fluck was in lights and one of the lights blew...” The other bingo calls for number 44 are All the Fours, Droopy Drawers, Aldershot Ladies and Open Two Doors.
Moving from this sex symbol to the original TV face of sci-fi we have Doctor Who which is the bingo call for number 2. The programme originally ran from 1963 to 1989 and was relaunched again in 2005. Number 2 can also be called as Buckle my Shoe, Little Boy Blue, One Little Duck, Me and You and Baby's Done It.
From sci-fi to magic we have the wife of the famous British magician Paul Daniels. Debbie McGee who is also his assistant is the bingo call 3. You can also hear three as Cup of Tea, Dearie me, I'm Free, One Little Flea, You and Me, Goodness Me and Monkey on the Tree.
Moving onto sport David Beckham is number 7 because of the number he wears when playing for England. This can also be called as God's in Heaven, Lucky Seven, Lucky or One Little Crutch. On 21st April 2009 David Beckham paid a visit to Downing Street to launch the Malaria No More campaign with Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Downing Street is not surprisingly number 10 in bingo.
We hope you enjoying the darling D calls and that your next online bingo experience is more fun with this knowledge.
