“Right, Winston, let’s take away two wrong answers and see what you’re left with. ‘Badger’ and ‘Cuckoo’ are the two remaining answers.”

“So who are you going to call?” says Chris. ”Hmmm, I think I’ll call Selwyn in Grenada.” So Tarrant phones Selwyn in Grenada. “Selwyn, this is Chris Tarrant from ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire’. I’ve got Winston here, and with your help he could win £1M. The next voice you hear will be Winston.”
