We are not millionaires (just to get that out of the way)

Do the phone a friends actually have security guys go to their house to make sure they don’t google or do they all have to come down to where it’s filmed and stay in a hotel?!

Congratulations on the win that’s so exciting!!

Oh I'd love to be on I want to be a millionaire.

I've done Mastermind (got a respectable score in the first round but someone else was better that day Smile). That was extremely nerve-wracking, took a lot of prep and there's no money at the end!!

I really admire people who have the nerve to do it. I know that my mind would go a total blank when asked questions.

@ajandjjmum How did you get on to go on Pointless as a part of the audience?

I auditioned about a month ago and haven't heard back, so that means probably means I haven't made the cut. :(


ajandjjmum · 30/08/2019 15:31

DH got the tickets - I think it's through SRO Audiences. There was an awful lot of queuing outside beforehand (fortunately decent weather), but it was interesting.


xsquared · 30/08/2019 15:36

Thanks ajandjjmum. Was it a celebrities version?


ajandjjmum · 30/08/2019 15:40

No - although that was what DH applied for! That'll teach him to read the tickets properly.


Thegracefuloctopus · 30/08/2019 15:45

I watched this and really really warmed to your Dh. He came accross lovely and Dh and I were routing for you! Knowing what you're going to do with the money makes me happy. Congratulations op! Does your dh realise how nice he came accross on telly? Because we really took to him!

Congratulations I know who your husband is as I watched last Sunday night's episode . He was awesome. Enjoy your winnings .

Congratulations to you both


Makingawish · 30/08/2019 16:08

Ahhh I watched this! Your DH was lovely, the exact type of person who I like to see win money 🤗


BlankTimes · 30/08/2019 16:23

Fabulous news OP, your husband didn't seem at all nervous, just took everything in his stride and came across as a really nice genuine guy.

Enjoy every penny and say a loud resounding NO to anyone who has the nerve to try and sponge or borrow any off you. Tell them there's none left, you've already spent it all Grin

I really want to watch the episode now Grin

Well done for him winning so much, thats amazing and sounds like you could really do with the extra funds right now.

Your answers are really interesting, esp about them buying him new clothes Shock

Have you seen the play called 'quiz'? If you like theatre then I really recommend it, especially after you have been through the WWTBAM experience!

How did your DH get picked? What was the audition process like? Well done to your husband btw! I saw the episode Flowers
