Chris Elliot was a contestant on Series 8 on 20 & 23 November 2000 and won £125,000. He was the first contestant to play after Judith Keppel won the million. He should not be confused with Chris Elliott who won £1,000 in April 2007. When the klaxon called time on his first night, Chris Tarrant commented that on Elliot's first question, he very nearly became the first person to leave with absolutely nothing on the first question.
