Last night's episode (September 11) of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? saw Donald Fear –aka the "best-ever contestant" – walk away with £1 million.
In what was a pretty astonishing game where the lucky winner only had to use one of his lifelines, host Jeremy Clarkson revealed to viewers that Donald wasn't the only member of the Fear family to sit in the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? chair.
Donald's brother, Davyth, also appeared on the show and did very well indeed, winning £500,000 last year.
Both brothers are teachers, with Davyth teaching geography and Donald specialising in politics and history, so the lesson to take away from that is to pay attention in school, kids.
Clarkson revealed last month that there would be a contestant who went all the way to the end on this series.
He said he was "thrilled" for Donald, who sailed through the 15 questions.
"I can't wait for the viewers to see it and I want to watch it back too. I was just in awe of this contestant and think they are probably the best the show has ever had in its 22-year history. It was a joy to sit and watch it unfold," explained Clarkson.
"It felt like we whizzed through the 15 questions and all of a sudden, confetti was falling from the ceiling and I was saying, 'You've just won one million pounds.' I wasn't sure I'd ever get to utter those immortal six words and I'm not embarrassed to say, it was a little emotional but boy did it feel good."
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire airs on ITV.
