What happened on Beat The Chasers last night?

Michael managed to raise £2,000 during the cash builder and chose to take on four chasers – Shaun Wallace, Anne Hegerty, Jenny Ryan and Paul Sinha.

They offered 41 seconds for £50k and that was too tempting for Michael to pass up.

What did Michael say he would spend his money on?

He told Bradley Walsh that he intended to do up his house.

Michael also said that he was planning to buy his partner Nicola an engagement ring.

“My partner’s been sending me pictures of gems that fit in a ring, so an engagement could be on the cards as well,” he said.

I’m delighted to confirm that I proposed to my partner soon afterwards and she said yes.

After the show, Michael told Wales Online: “My plans are still the same.

“I’m delighted to confirm that I proposed to my partner soon afterwards and she said yes.

“A wedding will now take place as soon as it’s safe to do so. We’ve also started doing the final bits of work that we wanted to do with our house.”

One regret

Despite his mega-win, Michael revealed one regret while he was one the show.

He said that the one Chaser he would have liked to have taken on was Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett.
