Fourth Millionaire 'is millionaire'
Chris Tarrant
Chris Tarrant's show has been a huge ratings hit for ITV
ITV's hit quiz show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? has another 1m winner - a contestant who is already a millionaire, it has been reported.

Robert Kempe Brydges, 47, is the fourth person to win the 1m top prize on Chris Tarrant's hit quiz show, the Sun reports.

But, the newspaper adds, the former company director is already a millionaire twice over.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
Judith Keppel was the show's first 1m winner
Mr Kempe Brydges, who has so far been unavailable for comment, is said to have been a director of City investment trust GNI Fund Management and a vice-president with US bank Hanover Trust.

He has a three-storey townhouse in London's Holland Park, and a country home rented from the National Trust in Hampshire, according to the Sun.

The show on which he appears, filmed on Tuesday night, is due to be screened on Saturday.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire's first winner was Judith Keppel, a distant cousin of Camilla Parker Bowles.

The second winner was David Edwards - a former champion of BBC One quiz show Mastermind.

The show's last 1m winner, royal engineer Major Charles Ingram, is taking legal action against programme makers Celador after his winnings were retained following allegations of cheating.
