Mary Byrne plays Personality Bingo with Tom Moran
Mary Byrne rose to fame in 2010 after becoming a finalist on the seventh series of The X Factor in 2010. Following her elimination in the live semi-final, she signed a record deal with Sony Music Ireland. Byrne and her fellow The X Factor finalists gained a number-one single on the UK Singles Chart and the Irish Singles Chart with a cover of David Bowie’s Heroes in aid of Help for Heroes.
She was also Neil Diamond’s special guest at the Aviva Stadium, where she performed in front of 55,000 people. In August 2011, Byrne appeared in GREASE: The Musical at the Grand Canal Theatre in Dublin. She began work on an autobiography, This Is My Life, and was released on 21 October 2011 in the UK and Ireland. Mary decided to leave Sony Music as she accepted a new record deal offer with Decca Music and Universal Music, who are confident they can ‘get her music career up and off the ground’. She has produced her second album, called …with Love. In 2012, Byrne appeared on Celebrity Bainisteoir.
Here’s how the show works:
60 Balls. 60 Minutes. 60 Questions. In those 60 minutes, Tom rolls his 13 euro Argos bought Bingo ball machine and asks his guest the corresponding question to that number ball. At the beginning of the show, the guest receives 6 numbers and if their 6 balls are drawn, they get to pick any question to ask Tom and he has to give a totally honest answer.
