Radio 2 duo Wogan and Evans hit jackpot on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? tryout

Sir Terry Wogan and Radio 2 successor Chris Evans have proved to be a winning combination — after breezing through all the questions on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? without a hitch.

The duo romped home with a lifeline to spare in a dummy-run on the show's set as they geared up for a celebrity Christmas special.

Evans, who recorded the edition of Millionaire with Sir Terry earlier this month, said: “Fairly and squarely, we did win the million — we used two (lifelines), we had one left.”

Sir Terry joked: “That's very sad. You know what they say — good rehearsal, bad show!”

The pair are sworn to secrecy about how they performed in the actual show.

The Irishman added: “Let's hope we do as well as we did in the rehearsal — it'll be half a million each if we did.”
