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.”

Writing stories gives you an opportunity to explore different ways of life without abandoning your own comfortable niche. Keep your project secret until you're satisfied with the results. A critic could take the wind out of your sails.More
