BARROW born TV chef Dave Myers won £1,000 for charity on ITV's Celebrity Who Wants to be a Millionaire - but lost out on a further £19,000.
The Hairy Biker was one of the last contestants to ever face a grilling from quiz master Chris Tarrant.
The celebrity chef was playing on behalf of St Mary's Hospice in Ulverston, alongside Countdown's Rachel Riley, who like Dave was a Strictly Come Dancing contestant last year.
But any hope of finishing on a colossal score were dashed. The duo rounded off the show by winning £1,000 for their charities, losing out on £19,000 with their final wrong answer to a royal question.
In the final seconds of the show, Tarrant gave a simple farewell after being presented with a bunch of flowers by the production team, telling him: "Oh darling, you shouldn't have."
Fun loving Dave's wife Liliana does volunteer work for the hospice. St Mary's CEO Val Stangoe said: "We're absolutely delighted that Dave has chosen to support us."
