A former history and politics teacher has been crowned as the first victor of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire in 14 years.
History and politics teacher Donald Fear won a million pounds on the game show hosted by Jeremy Clarkson.
Fear, a 57-year-old history and politics teacher with four children of his own, used just the one lifeline, 50:50, along the way.
His older brother Davyth had also been a contestant on the programme a year ago - but fell at the final hurdle, walking away with £500,000 on September 1. Sounds like brains certainly run in that family!
Clarkson, incredulous at the performance of the man who hails from Telford, said it was like sitting across from "Google in a pink shirt".
His brother David won £500,000 when he appeared on the show two years.
When Willoughby suggested a question about the Kardashians might have been a stretch, Fear replied: "The who?"
Speaking to Holly and Phil on This Morning about the momentous 20 minutes that changed his life (yes, he did it that quickly), he said: "I didn't phone anyone from the studio itself".
Talking of that final question: "In 1718, which pirate died in battle off the coast of what is now North Carolina?".
The couple stood trial for conspiring by coughing to signal the correct answers.

"The first thing I spotted was that there was a date in there... then a microsecond later I saw that it was 1718, ' he said".
And that retirement is due to begin soon - since winning the jackpot, he has resigned from Haberdashers' Adams Grammar school in Newport, Shropshire.
He said he is "happy" in the house he shares with Deb, his wife of 33 years.
"I intend to give at least 70 percent of the money away and leave just enough for me so I can have a comfortable retirement, say. I was trying to keep it a secret with just me knowing, but you know, so many decisions would have to be taken jointly with my wife so I chose to tell her and I did so as soon as I arrived home", he said.
And his brother Davyth has also been part of his celebrations.
'I was so fortunate, ' he said.
The victor, whose identity is now being kept secret, is believed to be a man, but that's all we know about him so far.
"I will probably see another year or two out to see my last A-level class through but I think it's about time me and my wife start looking around the world".
Today he returned to work to find students and peers were thrilled about his win - however admitted he will be stepping back from his role at the end of the school term.
