Martin’s champagne brain teaser
What’s the next number in the sequence & why? 106, 107,108,109,111,112,113,114… (clue, it's not 116 or 117). First correct answer with explanation posted here gets a bottle of champagne.
NOTE: As with many sequences there is more than one answer, but I'm looking for a specific one. As a clue, the answer has charm, it's not the obvious “four numbers in a row then miss one” type answer.
Good luck

126.
All start with number 1, 4 numbers had 0 in the middle, then the next four 1, so next one will be 2, and the last number is a sequence 6789 then skip one and another sequence 1234 then again skip one so next number is 6.0 
110 because it's missing worth a try I've never been good at maths0

Will the prize go to the first correct answer (which could be someone answering with a number at random)? Or to the first correct answer where they also explain why?:heartpuls Mrs Marleyboy :heartpuls

Does that mean that I haven't won, Martin?0

125. All numbers start with 1. First 4 numbers have 0 in the middle. Then miss a number out ie 110. Next 4 have 1 in the middle and end 114. Miss 115. So next will be 125......0

I'll have a guess at 125, my reason being ....
The first digit is constant (1), the second digit applies to groups of four numbers (4 x 0, then 4 x 1, so now 4 x 2) and the third digit is ascending??
So you'd have 125, 126, 127, 128 and then 139 etc.:cool:
