Parlour, who away from football is best known as the world’s premier Charlie Dimmock impersonator, went head-to-head with Childs on the BJ table in an event organised by 888casino.com.
To make the event more interesting, after being given training in the art of blackjack, Ray and Amy were both asked to sit on electric shock pads, which punished them when they made an error.
Despite her comparative lack of BJ experience, it was Essex TV personality and businesswoman Childs who performed better in the deadly dual.
Parlour left with his bottom practically smouldering after frequently being shocked as a punishment for his over-cautious play.
Ultimately, blackjack is a game of luck as well as skill. And, on the day, lady luck was with Amy, who took part in the event before her recent pregnancy announcement.
