Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Viewers Delighted As 'Best Player Ever' Wins Jackpot
History and politics teacher Donald Fear rattled through the 15 questions with barely a hesitation, using only one of his lifelines.
Ordinarily, if someone won a million quid in the space of 20 minutes, you'd think people might feel pretty bitter and jealous towards them. However, the 57-year-old was so impressive and assured that viewers could only heap praise on him:

The people have spoken - we have the GOAT of WWTBAM.
And as if Donald wasn't likeable enough, he's said he's going to give most of his winnings away - just as his brother Davyth did when he won £500,000 on the show last year.
Speaking to The Mirror, he said: "I am a bit of a democratic socialist so to speak, and just as my brother did with his win, this money will be splurged across the family.
"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. To be honest if I had a million pounds, I wouldn't have a clue how to spend it. I could buy an Aston Martin for instance, but I could get into the thing, but I could never get out of it. I'm fat!
"The only other thing you could possibly spend it on would be moving house but I am very happy with our house. It is in a lovely area and we have been there 27 years and have lovely neighbours, so why move? So I would rather keep the money and give it away to people I love. A motor-home is the only purchase on the horizon."
You enjoy that motor-home Donald, you deserve it.
