Coventry Man Is Not The Weakest Link
BY ANTONY HOPKER

Coventry Royal Mail worker Richard Morgan has dared to show he isnt the weakest link by coming out on top in the BBC quiz show.

Richard, aged 29, from Binley Road, works in the sales centre at the Coventry Mail Centre, Bishop Street, Coventry.

The episode in which he wins his prize of 2,710 is broadcast on Tuesday 20 March.

He said he was tempted to take on the formidable Anne Robinson "for a dare":

"I have never done anything like this before, but a friend of mine dared me to apply and I was accepted. It was a great experience, and I am obviously really pleased to have won.

"I travelled down the night before staying overnight in a hotel booked by the BBC, as we had to film the show at 9.30 in the morning.

I had a bit of luck as at the end of the first round I was the Weakest Link - but I wasn't voted off. I never thought I would go on to win in a month of Sundays - I am still getting over the shock!"

The first thing Richard is planning with his winnings is a holiday for himself and his girlfriend.

He said:

"We haven't decided yet where we want to go, but we have always wanted to go to Thailand, so that looks favourite at the moment.
