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

Terry Wogan

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.”

It may take longer than you expect to reach your goal, but don't let that deter you. The best things in life involve an element of sacrifice. A reference from a powerful friend will help you get into an exclusive group or prestigious society. Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
