    This lad ain't getting there anyways..

    Did he say he only recognised D ? Think he may have not read the question carefully.

    Did anyone see the contestant, Donald Fear? He looked like Davyth Fear who won £500,000 two(?) seasons ago?

    Well he is on now!

    Has any other Millionaire got through with only using a single lifeline? Incredible stuff!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,889 ✭✭✭ afatbollix


    3 lifelines left.

    Crazy, I would of done what that yank did when he won and rang his dad and said I'm about to win a million.

    Very good quizzer and luck was with him, as you need. The half million pound question is a fairly regular quiz one, strange for that money. Really delighted for him and his family.

    They really had to have a winner to keep people interested.

    I particularly like the fact that he had to tell Clarkson how many had previously won the million:D


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,553 ✭✭✭ dublinman1990


    Donald was a terrific winner to win the £1 Million. I have been avoiding the news articles about it earlier today to ignore the win until tonight's big win. It's a shame that his family were not there in the studio audience to see him win it. It would have been terrific scenes to see him giving them a big hug after winning the Jackpot. It's been wonderful night for this guy. I wish Donald a hearty congratulations & well done. He was superb.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,553 ✭✭✭ dublinman1990


    An outtake of JC had him say the f word twice on It'll be Alright on the Night on ITV.

    I would have pretended I didn't know the answer and asked the host!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,383 ✭✭✭ appledrop


    It was brilliant to watch.

    The minute he said his brother won 500,000 near the start myself + my husband were like ohhhhh he could be good!

    He is a teacher + wife a nurse so certainly not millionaires. Great to see people like that who are public servants winning money like that.

    Seems so down to earth. He will be a legend now in his school!


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,768 ✭✭✭✭ MisterAnarchy


    He is the head off Donald Pleasance.

    In fairness as a history and politics teacher he couldn't have asked for an easier series of questions.
    Up to 16k the questions were all very easy.
    The 50/50 took away the closest answer to the correct one.

    Not one modern pop culture , music, literature, sport, science or technology question.

    Seems like a very nice fellow though.
