Jeremy Clarkson fights back tears as Donald Fear wins jackpot

Donald Fear on 'This Morning'

The show is definitely easier from the comfort of the couch at home, when huge sums of money aren't on the line, but Fear didn't put a foot wrong, and hardly broke a sweat, en route to becoming the show's first jackpot victor in 14 years.

In an interview last month, Clarkson revealed that there would be a contestant who won the top prize. The options give were "Calico Jack, Blackbeard, Bartholomew Roberts and Captain Kidd" and the answer that helped him win the jackpot was "Blackbeard".

Charles, his wife Diana, and an accomplice, Tecwen Whittock, who was sitting in the audience, were accused of cheating when producers watched the recording of the show back.

"The only other thing you could possibly spend it on would be moving house but I am very happy with our house".

'As it is, I'm going just after my 58th'.

"To be honest, if I had a million pounds, I wouldn't have a clue how to spend it". The first priority ought to be to make sure I have a comfortable retirement.

Speaking of the night of his spectacular win, he added: 'We had all my family round and we were going away on holiday the next day. "We were supposed to be driving to Spain but Covid took that so we found a caravan trip to Whitley bay".

Donald spoke to Holly and Phil about his big win. 'I was trying to keep it a secret, but so many decisions have to be taken with my wife, so I chose to tell her as soon as I arrived home'.

Dining out may be a serious factor in COVID-19 risk
Murphy said "the chances are relatively low" there will be any significant spikes in COVID-19 cases after he lifted restrictions on restaurants.

Both brothers are teachers, with Davyth teaching geography and Donald specialising in politics and history, so the lesson to take away from that is to pay attention in school, kids.

Mr Fear also revealed he had practiced the Fastest Finger First round by "button-pressing in the air" while watching dozens of old programmes.

Host Holly Willoughby then quizzed him: 'What about The Kardashians?

'I'm just about to teach a sixth form class, ' he said.

"That's how old school I am".

More recently, the show saw a close call victor back in May, when retired doctor Andrew Townsley, from Glasgow, looked set to bag the big bucks.But he fell at the last hurdle and walked away with £500,000 instead, when faced with a question he didn't know the answer to, about motorsport.

"Reading and games and quizzes have been the staple of my life since I can first remember".

Donald was able to answer the £1million question - 'In 1718, which pirate died in battle off the coast of what is now North Carolina?' - before he'd seen it properly, because he'd taught piracy one year as a special unit and was very good with dates.
