CHEERING AND APPLAUSE welcome to the National Lottery's Secret
What a wonderful welcome. Hello and welcome to you and to Secret
Fortune. We have two players facing 24 envelopes. They are looking for
the one containing their Secret Fortune, anything from �100 to
�100,000! It is here and it is waiting to be won. Let's meet Tony
First of all, what is the relationship? Best friends. Who is
the most competitive? Definitely me. Jim is competitive when it comes to
sport. I desperately tried to beat him constantly, but there's nothing
today I can beat you at which drives me insane. Here is the
bright one? Who has more knowledge? I seem to have a random brain of
picking a news for us -- useless information. Tony is good on
geography and things like that. That is very generous! Her I've
always had an ambition. One of the ticklers things is to go on a quiz
show on TV and we will make a good team. Even though we are
competitive, we will be unstoppable. We might hand over �100,000 now! We
won't do that. Tell us who is at home. My wife is called Lynsey and
we have a one year-old called Olivia. We've been married for two-
and-a-half years. Who is at home? Rachel, a very, very long-suffering
wife. She is wonderful. No children. Rachel is the one that might
benefit tonight. You know you'll be going home with some money, but you
don't know how much. Your Secret Fortune is in one of tonight
envelopes. Each envelope contains an amount between �100 and �100,000.
Let's take a look at the money. Let's go through some of those
amounts. �100, what do you do with that? G in is really good at IT.
is my job! I have no idea how it works. I ring him up a lot to fix
stuff. I probably owe him. For services rendered over the years.
He owes me a lot more than 50 quid! What would �1,000 go on? Icy chefs
cooking on MasterChef and it looks amazing. I would probably take the
wife to a Michelin-starred restaurant and sample what is meant
to be the best food. �20,000? wife has put up with me for many
years. The one thing she has always wanted is a red shiny Porsche. If I
got that much money, I will go out and buy a red shiny Porsche,
probably second hand. I would help take the barrier away from trying
for a second child. It is a big thing. Let's talk about �50,000.
want to be generous. I would like to get the boat in the Caribbean
and invite all my friends for a huge party for a couple of weeks. I
wouldn't pay for them, but I would get the boat. �50,000 would be a
lot of things. At the moment I have a tiny car. We can't fit anything
other than a pushchair in. I would like something bigger and more
practical. Not as exotic as Tony, but still important. Good luck, I
hope you win big. Each of these envelopes contains one of those
amounts. They are numbered 1-24. Let's see all these away and the
next time you will see one of these is when you bring it into play.
Digital players can play along at home. The first thing you are going
to do is choose four envelopes. and 24. 5 and nine. Let's see them
on the board. Inside each envelope is one of those amounts. You have
to keep the envelope that contains the most money. Let's see the first
I don't know what is in those envelopes, but our computer does
and it is allocating the envelope containing the most money to the
richest singer and the second largest amount is with the second
richest and so on. You have to lose three answers. What do you think?
would think Robbie Williams is probably the least rich. I would
say that as well. The longer you've been in it, the more successful,
the more it will have grown. Key I think Robbie Williams we will get
rid of first. We would like to get rid of Laurie Williams. En Ville at

Tom Jones, Cliff Richard, Gary Barlow. Gary Barlow is doing really
well now, but he has not had her whole career of doing stuff, 40
years. I liked your logic. Get rid Your Secret Fortune tonight will
Tom Jones is a Welsh singing star, he has done lots of albums. He
hasn't really done films. Cliff Richard has been around forever and
sold bucket loads of stuff. I am coming around to Cliff Richard.
Let's get rid of Tom Jones. Your Secret Fortune tonight will
It either could be amazingly good news or horrific. Would you like to
explain why it might be amazingly good? Be fit turns up we have
picked the right answer, we either have 75,000 or �100,000. We can
find out because we can ask the computer, it was Sir Cliff Richard
It was in fact Sir Tom Jones. This is the correct order. You don't get
to see that and so identifying what is envelope five is tricky.
Envelope five could be your Secret Four more envelopes. One and two.

sure out of all of them, Khuner is common but it is not something that
Envelope two. Your Secret Fortune That's all right. Very good. Do a
lot of people by egg sandwiches? People don't want to stink of egg
or fish. I am confident with that. We will go with eggs. Envelope 20.
Your Secret Fortune tonight will Very good. One might say you on a
roll! My instinct says cheese. First of all I thought... Let's go
with that. We don't know. I think we can get rid of chicken. Envelope
number one. Your Secret Fortune tonight will not be... You seem to
have reasoned this through. Your Secret Fortune tonight will not
Done it again. Wow, I'm afraid that is a very large amount going in the
bin. Leaving you with envelopes 16 for the answer a of cheese. It is
entirely possible that you are still correct. Which of these
sandwiches sold the most in 2011? The top answer is chicken. This is
the correct order for you at home. That was quite tough. Two rounds
running where you have had the biggest answer in the last two
answers and gone the wrong way. Envelope 16 could be your Secret

know is princess Jazz minute. -- Jasmine. Can you sing the songs?

�9,000. That is OK. I'm sure I have seen a recent advert for Mulan. I'm
more sure than the others. That is good enough for me. I have no idea.
Get rid of Mulan. Envelope 6. Your secret fortune tonight will not

we haven't heard about, but it has come out in the last 20 years.
think we would be stupid not to, because we don't know any better.
We will punt with getting rid of Belle. Envelope 22. Heard of Beauty
And The Beast? It is closer to Aladdin. Released in 1991. Your
secret fortune tonight will not be... �30,000. Oh man this is same
again. Envelope 22 goes in the bin, leaving with envelope No 3. Is it
possible you could still have the top answer, was it Princess
Jasmine? It was in fact Belle. For you at home here is the correct
order of all four answers. Envelope 3 could be your secret fortune
tonight. I'm determined you will crack this. Choose four envelopes.
I will go for 13 and 14. I will go The computer will allocate the
answer with the most number to the test with the highest pass rate.
What do you think? I would say with bus and lorry by the time somebody
goes to take that test, they have gone through a lot of training. Do
you think cars will be one of the most difficult ones to pass? People
who have never got in a vehicle before. I'm certain car will not be
the top answer. I will get rid of car. Yes. Envelope 13. Is 13
generally a lucky or unlucky number. It is just a number. Your fortune
tonight will not be... �10,000. think you wouldn't get in a bus or
lorry unless you're a good driver. Having passed a car test already.
reckon motorcycle. We can get rid of motorcycle. We don't know any
better. Envelope 19. Your secret fortune tonight will not be...
�100,000. Oh mate! �100,000. That has to go in the bin. Ouch!. Let's
say that because there are paying passengers on a bus it is probably
more difficult to pass a bus driving test. I don't think. I
think with lorry you have more people go for lorry tests, because
it's possibly seen as easier to do. I like the logic both ways, but I
think you might be barking up the right tree with the fact that more
people take the lorry test. Therefore, more people fail it. So
get rid of lorry. Get rid of? Envelope 7, thank you. Your fortune
tonight will not be... �16,000. We're neglecting the bottom left.
Bus, this is the blais where I usually say please tell us what the
top answer is. Can you confirm what was the top answer. Motorcycle. For
you at home, here is the correct order. That is not a great round.
Envelope 14 could be your secret fortune tonight. Choose another

envelopes to the answers. certain the MOBOs are new. Music of

British soap awards and the national TV awards. I will say. You
will say? MOBO. Envelope 8. Your secret foreClun tonight will not
be... �12,000. That is higher than I thought. It is off the right hand
side of the board. This logic ain't working. You can't seem to catch a
break. There couldn't have been open awards before there were...
That is right. National television. Is national TV awards on now?
for general all TV stuff. Yes. documentary, whatever. I think so.
Best quiz show host, Nick Knowles obviously. Never been nominated.
Let's go with the instinct of the soap awards not being around that
long. Which one? British soap awards. Let's do it. Your secret
fortune tonight will not be... �1,000. Come on! Finally.

for mother cam and Wise. -- More cam. I think we need to do it. We
need the get rid of British Comedy Awards. Envelope 18, thank you.
Your secret fortune tonight will not be... �22,000. That goes in the
bin. So we're down to envelope number 4. Which is the national
television awards. Have you got it right? Which of these television
award shows was established first? Commuter? -- computer? Did it again.
Done it again. For you at home, here is the correct order of all

four numbers left. 10, 12, 15 and What sort of question would you
like? Sport. Sport! Or flags. or flags. Test him on a country and

what made him. Thid -- did they have space ships. If you're going
into the future, space would feature. But thinking about it, he
did a lot of stuff that is rally modern. We have to be happy with
what we're saying. Get rid of Minority Report. Envelope number 10.
Your seek cet fortune tonight will not be... �20,000. Oh! Two left. We
don't know one. One we know had a lot of futuristic stuff. How much
more futuristic can you get than space? It might not be space-
related. It might be some... Blade Runner was space-related. Get rid
of Logan's Run. Envelope 15. The interesting thing about this is
when I open envelope 15, if I don't say �40,000 it is in the final.

that it is not the 40 is about the best news that you have had all

Envelope 12 could be your secret fortune tonight. You started with
24 envelopes, you now have six containing �500, pbdz 6 thousand,
�8 thousand, �14,000, �18,000 and a substantial jump, because somewhere
in one of these envelopes is a cheque with your name on for
�40,000. APPLAUSE. One of those amounts will be your secret fortune.
I think having watched you play those first six questions, a song
comes to mind - Things Can Only Get Better. Now time to cross to
lottery HQ. Time for the Thanks, Alan, and good evening,
everyone. Tony and Jim are not having the best luck. They've still
got 40 grand on the board, though. Let's hope they can hold on to that.
Now tonight we've got two live draws, Thunderball in just a moment,

money up for grabs. Before we crack on with Thunderball, I just want to
say a big congratulations to all the ParalympicsGB athletes as

their goal, and as we've been hearing from so many of the

Remember, from now on, you can only throw away one envelope per
question and the answer you give me will be the envelope by throwing
into the bin. Let's see the answers. The computer has allocated the
lowest amount of money to the youngest loose woman. That is what
you are looking for. Give me the youngest and for �500 goes in the
bin. Slip up and give me the oldest and the �40,000 is going in the bin.
