A WREXHAM bingo caller is bidding to be crowned 'Host of the Year'.

After a nationwide search for Mecca’s best bingo caller, Jason Davies, from Mecca Wrexham, has been shortlisted for the final five of Mecca’s ‘Host of the Year’.

If he wins this competition, he will then be shortlisted into the National Bingo Caller of the Year 2019 competition.

Mecca Bingo Wrexham will be sharing all finalists’ videos on its Facebook page, where you can vote for the winner.

The bingo caller is the heartbeat of every club; the one who takes centre-stage and breathes fun and excitement into every single session. After narrowing it down from hundreds of great callers, Jason made the final five for Mecca Bingo Wrexham.

Jason has been a caller at the club for two years and thinks that his unique way of incorporating Welsh phrases into his calling makes him the very best. If Jason is successful in the ‘Host of the Year’ competition, he will go on to compete in the ‘Caller of the Year’ competition and hopefully be presented with the ‘Caller of the Year’ award from The National Game alongside £1,000 prize money.

Mike Etherington, general manager at Mecca Bingo Wrexham, said: “We are very excited here at Mecca Bingo to have Jason make the final five out of everyone in Britain. We’d love local support to vote for Jason and see him being crowned the ‘Host of the Year’ and maybe even the National Bingo Game Caller of the Year 2019.’’
