Donald's win came a year after his brother Davyth, 60, took home the second biggest prize - £500,000 - this time last year on the show.  

The contestant even admitted he 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.

It was at this point in the show – the final question – on September 1 last year that his retired geography teacher brother stumbled and chose to walk off with his half million.

He said he is 'happy' in the house he shares with Deb, his wife of 33 years. The couple are parents to Kat, 31, Ali, 30, Izzy, 26, and 22-year-old Chris
