The Week: Advertising news - Fat woman wanted for ads

The bingo comparison website is looking for an "obese young woman" to star in its forthcoming advertising campaign.

The company is searching for an overweight lady to feature in its "show us your bingo wings" ad push, which will be rolled out later this year. The campaign will include a competition called "Bingo Wings Idol", where ten candidates will show off their flabby underarms to a panel of judges, with the winner receiving £100,000.
