Good Morning Britain is known for its amazing competitions – with this week’s promising one lucky winner an astonishing £250,000!
But viewers were left shocked and furious when a winner from Christmas appeared on Tuesday morning’s show – and admitted she hasn’t received a penny.
Comp-correspondent Andi Peters was on air alongside Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins promoting the latest big-money prize.
Declaring that GMB “creates REAL winners all the time” he introduced previous winner, Sue to the show.
After having her list what she won back in December – including a Mercedes GLC, a gadgets package for the family and a whopping £150,000 – he awkwardly asked her: “Have you had the car yet? Have you had the cheque yet? Have you had the gadgets yet?”
To each question, she shook her head, saying: “No.”
Embarrassingly Andi, 48, then said: “Well, Sue, come with me because through these doors…! No, there’s absolutely nothing.”
He added a bit nervously: “It’ll come in time, I’m sure.”
Viewers flooded Twitter to express shock and disgust over the exchange, with one writing: “I hope that women on #GMB was joking about having not received her Christmas competition prizes. If not it’s absolutely disgusting – nearly March and she’s received nothing.”
A second added: “So the Christmas winner has won big prizes but yet we are near the end of February and she’s not had any of them. Why would anyone want to enter the competition now knowing this? Bad advertising #GMB.”
A third tweeted: “#GMB I think it’s disgusting that the Christmas competition winner has not received her prize by almost March. She should at the very least have had the money. That should be next day.” A fourth added: “#gmb people who waste money on GMB competition’s for £250,000 are mugs.”
While one more blasted: “Shocking intro to explain how to win a competition…. ‘let’s speak to past winner, Have you got the money?? No. Have you got the car ? No. Have you got the gadgets? No.’ Xmas winner now in end of Feb @GMB #GMB.”
Later on in the show – and perhaps after clocking the angry tweets – Andi re-appeared with Sue to present her with a cheque.
True to form, Piers, 53, even ending up storming off set after an A-lister ‘snubbed’ him.
At least Sue’s got her cheque now! Let’s hope she’s allowed to cash it…
