Heidi, a customer service assistant from Bristol, reached the last part of the ITV quiz show today (Wednesday 17th February) after a tense round with sudden death.

Heidi and competitor Jak were the last two hopefuls, and she struck him in a sudden death after they both dealt with prize pots of £ 2,050.
Ben asked them, “How many days are there in the calendar month of May?”
Jak answered wrong with 30 and made Heidi the winner.
