. The £1million question saw her correctly guess that Henry II was the husband of Eleanor of Aquitane. Twice-divorced Judith, now 78, was a newly-qualified garden designer at the time who was trying to set up her own business and struggling to make ends meet, the Mirror reports.

She was determined to get on the show and concocted a plan by calling 250 times. After finally landing a place on the programme, Judith's time had come. When she reached £16,000 before her episode ran out of time, the mother-of-three treated herself to a cashmere sweater from Harrods. After winning the huge jackpot prize a week later, teetotal Judith, now a grandmother of five, had a simple celebration with a cola and enrolled on a four-day money management course. With her cash win, she bought a relatively modest £20,000 Audi, holidayed in India and Asia and made a donation to a tiger conservation charity. A distant cousin of Camilla Parker-Bowles, Judith swapped her Fulham townhouse for a small London flat, and bought a property in Albi, southwest France, before landing a regular role on BBC game show Eggheads in 2003.
