The retired geography teacher, the episode of which first aired in September 2019, decided to leave with half a million pounds – and said it was "the best" to help his family with his profits.
Davyth spoke exclusively to FEMAIL about the first thing he spent his money on: "I helped my family. I have a brother, two sisters, nephews and nieces and have helped them. I gave them a sum of money. & # 39;
"One of them spent it on new windows for his new house, I have one at the university and they keep it just in case, while my sister likes to dive and therefore spend it on a motor home."

Response: Several Twitter users (pictured) quickly boasted of knowing the answer to the million-pound question
"Which of these people was born in the same year as Queen Elizabeth II?" Host Jeremy Clarkson (pictured) asked before presenting the options to Davyth: "Audrey Hepburn, Judy Garland, Julie Andrews and Marilyn Monroe."

Davyth went on to say that he retired as a teacher about four years ago and was now a supply teacher.

Jeremy Clarkson read the question: "Which of these people was born in the same year as Queen Elizabeth II?" before introducing Davyth to the options: "Audrey Hepburn, Judy Garland, Julie Andrews and Marilyn Monroe."
