Christmas came early for one Crawley bingo player when he won a £5,000 hamper containing top of the range food and drink.

Mark White, of Bewbush, was presented with the hamper by Celebrity Big Brother star Casey Batchelor courtesy of GalaBingo.com.

Mark, 48, opened his door to find Casey adorning a classic large wicker Christmas hamper put together by Grantham-based firm Hay Hampers Ltd.

Among the 90 luxury items inside were: 2004 Pol Roger Rose champagne, 2006 Pierre Andre Chassagne Montrachet, Dows 1985 port and roast smoked venison, duck and beef from Rannoch Smokery.

There were also various pâtés, cheeses and artisan-style crackers, luxury English chocolates and treats, brandy Christmas pudding and numerous tasty cakes, sauces and chutneys.

A spokesman for GalaBingo.com said Mark had been a member of Gala Bingo for five years.

Mark added: “I know Casey from Celebrity Big Brother so you can imagine how surprised I was to see her at the door delivering this amazing gift.

“It’s definitely the best Christmas present I’ve received by a long way!”
