| Updated:

Family Fortunes had viewers swooning last night over ‘fit’ contestant Micaela.

During Sunday (October 11) evening’s episode of the popular ITV game show, Micaela Phillips from Bristol was on with her mum Enza, dad Stuart and sisters Sophia and Alessandra.

“We all work for the NHS,” Micaela explained. “Sophia and I are healthcare assistants and Alessandra is a midwife.”

What happened with Micaela during last night’s Family Fortunes?

Praising Enza and Stuart’s daughters in the studio, host Gino D’Acampo said: “You have triplets. They have grown to be three amazing, beautiful girls. Bellissima! Bellissima!”

The Phillips were playing against the Buckley family from Bury in Greater Manchester – mum Lynn, her daughter Shaunnie, son-in-law Lewis, son Chris and his husband, Kean.

At the end of the episode the Phillips family won the main game; therefore Enza and Micaela got to play in the Big Money round.

“This is daunting,” Micaela said as she prepared herself.

“Am I making you nervous?” Gino joked.

“It’s those big blue eyes, Gino,” she told him.

Micaela scored 119, meaning they needed 81 points from Enza.

However, the mum stumbled on one of the questions when she failed to think of an animal that begins with the letter M. That’s despite feeling confident.

“It’s your eyes, Gino,” the mum confessed, following Micaela’s joke earlier.

The presenter laughed: “Why is everybody blaming my eyes now? Next time I will wear sunglasses.”

The family went on to win £10,000.
