What happened with Joe and Robert on The Million Pound Cube?

Robert explained how he has always been a huge fan of the show. Host Phillip Schofield quizzed them on their skills, and Robert said that while Joe has the academic brain, he himself is the more physical of the two.

Robert said: “I’m very sporty, more active. With our attributes together, we’re unstoppable.”

Joe told Shofe: “I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think I could beat the cube.”

And it seems they did have the skills needed to get far in this notoriously challenging game now.

For the £100k challenge, Dual Extraction, they had to use one hand to remove a long line of tabs from their slots and press a button within eight seconds.

Phil explained that on average, the challenge took up five lives – which is exactly how many they had left.

But it proved tough and the duo, though confident initially, quickly lost several lives.

My heart literally… when I pressed the button my heart stopped.

But with the help of their Simplify option, which gave them two extra seconds, they smashed it with 1.8 seconds remaining.

Robert said: “My heart literally… when I pressed the button my heart stopped.”

“Listen to me now, you have £100,000!”

One of Joe’s sisters, watching from the sidelines, said: “Everything you showed inside that cube was just… amazing!”

At that point, although they had two lives remaining, they decided to leave with their winnings.
