HEART'S Make Me a Millionaire competition ended with a dramatic moment during Friday's breakfast show when Paul Clymer won the big prize.
Dad-of-four Paul, from the Isle of Sheppey, was named Britain's latest millionaire by Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston.
The incredible moment saw Paul pick box 11 from the vault – in a nod to his youngest daughter Alisha, 11.
Amanda told him: "If you could break the seal and tell me…"
But, before she could finish her sentence, Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda saw what Paul had won and let out a shriek as Paul looked on in shock.
He said: "I'm amazed, I don't know what to say."

Amanda told him: "You've won a million pounds based on your daughter Alisha's birthday."
As a speechless Paul struggled for words, Amanda added: "Your life has changed forever."
After winning the life-changing prize, Paul said: "I came here for the experience, not coming here thinking I was going to win. It's just surreal at the moment. It's crazy, crazy times.”
Paul later revealed his plans for the money and said that he and his partner of 20 years, Martyne, want to buy their rented home – but they're off on a nice holiday before that.
