    Yes you do sound like that, yes you do talk very quickly.:D

    For anyone (like Martin) who missed the start of the show...............or the whole show.........it's repeated at 12 noon on Saturday 19th September on ITV1.;)

    As I've said before, Martin and Angela make a brilliant team. Well done for raising £150,000 for the two charities.:T

    I've been in the audience a couple of times. You just hear a whisper from someone that the answer is definitely B and everyone in a six seat radius presses B.

    Although it is no doubt intense for the participants, there is a lot of re-recording and gaps, so the audience tends to chatter. So much so that they sometimes miss the question alltogether; if their neighbours also miss the question, people press random answers!

    DON'T RELY ON THE AUDIENCE!

    Well done on doing so well. I just watched it and it made me chuckle when Angela realised that her Doctor friend was Australian. Hope he didn't burn his soup! ;-)


    I wonder if they'd ever do a Celebrity The Cube with Philip Schofield. Wouldn't that be something.

  • I regularly visit this website, but have only registered today. Always listen or watch you when on TV or radio. It was great to see you do so well on 'Millionaire' and although I was shouting the answer 'crocodile' to you, you did the right thing by taking the money for the benefit of others. You are an inspiration and a good friend!:j
