June decided to use her 50:50 lifeline, eliminating A and C. Still unsure, she decided to call her friend Jane, who had no idea either, as she had never watched the series. June then decided to Ask the Audience, who voted slightly in favour of the Duchess of Kent (57%). As the audience did not seem pretty sure either, she decided to walk away with £16,000. The correct answer was B: Princess Margaret.
