It was revealed that Donald was the first person in 14 years to have won the £1million prize, with the last jackpot winner of the quiz show being a retired civil servant Ingram Wilcox in 2006.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire fans have shared their excitement after the history teacher won the top prize during Friday night’s episode of the show.

One fan wrote: “Can’t believe my old history teacher won! Such a nice guy too!! Legend!”

Another tweeted: “Wow, what a intelligent bloke. Well played, well deserved.

While another wrote about the quiz show: “Omg what a performance from Donald Fear. Is there anything that man doesn’t know? Just riveting #WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire”

A couple of other viewers mentioned the fact that Jeremy was overwhelmed after Donald became the first winner on the quiz show during his time as host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

One tweeted: “@JeremyClarkson nearly brought to tears. What a performance from Donald and what a nice bloke. Deserved winner #WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire”

It’s interesting to note that Donald’s win comes after his brother Davyth took home the second biggest prize which is £500,000 around this time last year on the quiz show.

Donald Fear handed in his notice as head of history at Haberdashers’ Adams grammar school in Shropshire the day after his win in the recorded show. He will see out the school term, then begin his retirement two years earlier than what he had planned.

He also intends to give 70 percent of his winnings from the quiz show away to his family members and to charity and leave himself with just enough for a ‘comfortable retirement’.
