Brad then turned to Rebecca and said: “I’ll have you know, I’m from Hertfordshire. I’m from Watford in Hertfordshire, in actual fact Leavesden.

“Do you know where Leavesden is? Harry Potter film studios.

“That’s where I worked, I worked for Rolls Royce.”

He continued, slipping into a jokey posh accent: “I’m actually a jet engineer don’t you know. Not just a cockney person.”

“Apologies!” Rebecca said and Bradley replied, still putting on a posh voice: “Accepted.”

Rebecca and two of her fellow contestants, Richard and Alex, made it to the final round and ended up winning £20k each.
