Dan Walker wins big for Sheffield Children’s Hospital
Dan Walker says he is ‘delighted’ to have won £32,000 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital on a ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ celebrity special.
Writing on Twitter after Sunday night’s show aired, Dan said: “Delighted to win £32,000 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
“Gutted it wasn’t more for such a great charity.”
His £64,000 question was: “Hell is other people, is the English translation of a famous line in a play of which writer?”
Dan had the choice of four options including Jean-Paul Sartre, Henry Gibson or Anton Chekov.
He decided to use a lifeline and asked host Jeremy Clarkson, who responded by saying: “Here’s what I think, I’m going to be honest I don’t know, I mean you’ve got 50/50 left.”
After choosing Henry Gibson, Dan learned it was the incorrect answer and was left with his head in his hands.
Jeremy apologised saying: “I’m really sorry about that Dan, really sorry about that. The fact is though you are leaving here with £32,000.”
John Armstrong, Chief Executive at the Hospital, wrote: “Absolutely amazing; this donation will help us to continue to deliver the best possible care for all the children and young people that come to Sheffield Children’s. Thank you!”
