THIS Morning fans have been left fuming as the show's £1m prize winner appeared on the show today – and didn't even seem happy about it.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that a winner had finally been selected – a woman from Essex who wished to remain anonymous.
But it was the winner's "unimpressed" attitude that left viewers shocked.
The player, known only as Mrs Winner, also appeared on the show last week when Andi Peters called to give her the good news – with a very muted response then, too.
And on the show this morning, Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary spoke to the lucky winner, but it seemed as though they were trying to get blood out of a stone.
“Oh it’s so lovely to hear from you,” said a bubbly Alison, adding: “Now, I’ve got to ask you, how did you remain so calm after hearing that you’d won a million pounds?”
Despite winning the life-changing amount, Mrs Winner sounded monotone in her response: “Ah, well, I thought it was just a joke, so I was lost for words really – I’m still in shock.”
Dermot then interjected, explaining she was offered two options – the chance to take the million pounds, or £10,000 a month for the next ten years – making it £1.2m.
Alison gasps in anticipation, as Dermot added: “I can’t believe you’re gonna tell us, you’ve had seven days to decide, so have you made your decision?
Sounding even more underwhelmed than before, she revealed: “Yeah, I’ve had a chat with my family and I think we’d love to take the one million in one go.
“We were just looking to re-mortgage actually so we can renovate our house because it definitely needs upgrading, so this will change our lives completely.”
Viewers immediately took to Twitter to share their shock at her underwhelmed attitude.
One fan fumed: "Imagine winning a million quid and acting like that – so ungrateful."
Another commented: "The million pound winner sounded decidedly underwhelmed – I'd have been screaming like a banshee."
