“You’re an angel, so this is very, very well deserved,” Phillip Schofield told the caller. He then asked Andrew what he’d like to try his luck on, the balls or the wheel. Andrew decided to go for the wheel, and Phillip was happy to oblige.

Phillip Schofield spun the wheel and it luckily landed on £3,000, meaning Andrew had some extra cash to spend this Christmas.

Andrew couldn’t hide his joy and his partner jumped on the line to call Phillip and Holly “beautiful”.
