Ashlea Jade was inside the iconic venue and recorded a clip of the caller, who has a Liverpool accent, saying: "Go and sit down and shut the f*** up. You stupid baldy little b******, honest to god."
She tweeted saying: "So this was the bingo caller @ last nights @BongosBingo in Blackpool. He was so rude & couldn’t even speak he was that off his head."
After the bingo callers rant, he then returns to calling out numbers, with many audience members later complaining about the event.
