WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WON ONE MILLION POUNDS?

Imagine you have just won one million pounds. Now decide who you are going to call to tell them the news first.

Unsurprisingly, 41% of Brits would tell their partner first, followed by their mum (14%). However, 12% would not tell anyone, including their immediate family and best friend, they have just become a millionaire.

The big question then is are you going to give any of your new fortune away? Well, while 14% would give away no more than £10k, the average amount someone in the UK would is £133,000 according to new research from Lottoland.

And who is receiving the generous gift of money? The winner’s child (28%), partner (19%) or mum (19%) – who is three times more likely to be given the money than dads (6%).

Donald Fear recently became the sixth winner of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, the first with Jeremy Clarkson, using just one lifeline and immediately knowing the answer to the million-pound question – In 1718, which pirate died in battle off the coast of what is now North Carolina? (obviously, it was Blackbeard).
