Phil Whitehead - £1,000 Minute Winner

A St Dennis man claimed a grand in cash, after proving his cranial-credentials on Pirate FM!

Phil Whitehead from St Dennis took part in Pirate FM's £1,000 Minute last week, where he was pit against 10 general knowledge questions, which he had to answer in just 60 seconds.

A confident Phil steamed through, confidently answering all the questions correctly - that was, until one came up about Eurovision: "Which country last won?".

After considering it for a while, and with just seconds remaining, he correctly answered that it was indeed Sweden - and the cash was his!

Phil popped in with his family, Lowenna, Eleanor, Bo and Laura to pick up his cash from Pirate FM.

"I'm still in shock. I didn't think I'd get the last question right, and so when you told me Sweden was correct, I was just gobsmacked!" he said.

You can win a grand, every single weekday morning with the £1,000 minute - Check out more details here.
