Handing over big National Checks…The biggest one was £500k to a housewife in Doncaster… The best reaction was from a student Nurse in Grimsby who won £20k. Then doing all the staff shows over the years, from being Doctor Frankfurter and doing the time warp in Grimsby as a member of staff (yes, there are photos of this somewhere, to doing the yearly pantomime with Neil Hambly and the team in Hull.)
