Shirley left the show in 2004 with her alter ego, Declan Buckley, taking over the spot. Shirley also provide her own theme song which she sang for the show, Telly Bingo Twice a Week, which was played out at the end of each edition, during her time on the show. This was removed following her departure from the show.
