    To win you have to be at least a little bit clever, but Charles didn’t even try to act smart. He just flailed his way through all the questions and ‘somehow’ managed to win a million pounds.

    This program is excessively drawn out. We learn in the first five minutes of the show they were coughing to indicate the correct answer. The entire rest of the program is basically every employee repeating the same information. This program could have been a minute long.

    I think coughing can’t be proof, show owners mistake and was there anything says audience can’t cough in the show? I believe this fraud is planned with show owners. There is a bigger scam includes show owners and that family just to have more ratings on tv.

    Prior to watching the video I already knew the story and how they had pretty much proven the cheating allegations (if not proven, then made an extremely Strong argument for the cheating) so it is possible that the contestant's conduct in the few seconds from 54-67 seconds (within the first minute) looks extremely awkward and generally off. He seems to cycle between feelings of happiness, worry/anxiety and relief as he hugs his wife. Maybe I'm just "wanting" to see something, because I know what he did-but I can't help but think those few seconds were a give away (a give away you would have known in hindsight of course-notprior to finding out about the cheating). ALSO, his new strategy is totally a new giveaway. He clearly had no idea what the answers were when he used the lifelines. Had he "talked himself out of the answer" he would have at least went back and forth between 2 maybe 3 answers, but he clearly had no idea what any of the answers were. He is nervous and is already trying to justify the fact that he believes he's going to or may win. There is no strategy for the game, besides PICK THE RIGHT ANSWER -_- LOL. The only "strategy" I suppose you can say is deciding between choosing the amount you are at bt not answering and thereby taking the value you've achieved thus far but also ending the game OR guessing and risk going home with the last checkpoint amount if you get it wrong but getting the next amount ig you get it right. Pay attention closely, he is clearly trying to justify why today he is going to do well when the previous day his performance was clearly lacking.

    How dare the organisers of this show demonstrate this much arrogance in saying they knew about this fraud and what was going on all along throughout the show? They didn't really. Slight suspicions, maybe at best and now they POSE AS EXPERTS. If they really were so knowledgeable and well-informed, they would have had a much tighter security in place which resulted in that winning man NEVER having even a chance to get to his seat in the first place. Shame on them, too and that is when thousands of people undoubtedly called and genuinely wanted to win too.

      @Blood Beryl Good point. If you knew of computer storage and went to university for anything science related, you could rule out gigabyte and nanomole. Megatron would also be an odd choice since scientific scales don't reuse prefixes. Basically as long as you took a science undergrad that answer should be pretty obvious with an elimination process.
