Zoe, 23 is a regular bingo player at the Opera Bingo Club in Whitehaven and decided to celebrate her birthday with her friends and aunt when she got the surprise of her life.

Her partner Ryan O’Pray made a surprise visit during the bingo session and asked for her hand in marriage.
She said: “I didn’t know anything about it until the bingo announcer said she had a happy birthday message for me. It was my birthday the following day.

“Just after she had said that Ryan walked in.”

Ryan did it the old fashioned romantic way and knelt down on one knee in front of 100 bingo players with a diamond engagement ring and asked her to marry him. Her bingo roomies applauded with glee as Zoe gladly accepted his proposal.

The mother of two added: “I was almost crying I couldn’t believe it. I’m really pleased.

“Ryan said he had been planning to propose on my birthday but thought it would be funny to do it at bingo. He told my cousin who thought it was a great idea.”

The couple has two children together and plans to save for a proper wedding in a couple of years.

Assistant manager at the Opera Bingo, Janet Mingins, commented: “This is the first time we’ve had a proposal at the club and staff and customers felt privileged to be part of it”.
