Tim revealed: "I'm going to go down to the motorhome dealers and buy a very big plane."

Medical student Luca said he would buy "a takeaway from the Ritz," having earlier vowed to buy two takeaways per week if he won the grand prize.

While brain box and daredevil Diane said: "I'm going to go on a wing walk and I might take Dermot to an Arsenal match."

Bradley said the win came following the formation of "The perfect storm of teams," – while chaser the Governess (real name Anne Hegerty, 60), declared: "Very well played. You deserve it."
