This Morning viewers in tears as Spin to Win caller who has just lost job wins £3,000 jackpot

Lesley was overwhelmed by her win

This Morning viewers were in tears as a Spin to Win caller who has just lost their job won £3,000.

Lesley from Manchester correctly said the phrase, “Winner takes it all!”, and bagged a chance to win some cash.

As hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield answered the call, Lesley asked: “This isn’t a wind up, is it?”

Phil told her: “No, no!”

She said: “Oh, because I’ve just been made redundant, and my granddaughter is five days old, I was panicking on Christmas and everything, oh God.”

Holly said: “Well congratulations on that! What’s your granddaughter’s name?”

Lesley replied: “Elsie,” to which Holly said: “Oh my gosh what a time you are having, so it’s a bit up and down?

“Honestly I can’t believe it, it really is [you]!” Lesley told the host.

Phil said: “We are going to spin the wheel now, okay?”

Holly added: “This is going to make Christmas, because you are definitely going to win some money.”

However, Phil told her: “I’m not allowed to cheat on this,” as he spun the wheel.

It landed on £3,000 – the highest amount on the wheel – as Holly said: “I can’t believe it!”

An overwhelmed Lesley said: “Oh thank you! That has made my Christmas! Since I’ve been made redundant I have been doing this. Thank you!”
