Trivia Edit

  • Roger Walker is the last single contestant to win £500,000. Nobody else won £500,000 until Jackie and Laurence Llewellyn Bowen in February 2006.
  • Roger is the only contestant to win £500,000 in 2002. Nobody won £500,000 in the years of: 1998, 1999, 2003, 2005 and 2007.
    • Rob Mitchell was the only one to answer the £500,000 question in 2003. But, he got it wrong. If he was right, and walked away with £500,000, there would have been a £500,000 winner in 2003.
  • If Duncan Bickley and Rob Mitchell didn't get their Half-A-Million Pounds Question wrong, it'll be currently unknown if they would've answered the Million Pounds Question on WWTBAM UK.
