A software developer has become the Mastermind 2005 champion - a year after winning the top prize on the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? quiz show.

Patrick Gibson, 42, from Wigan, Greater Manchester, became the 28th winner of the title on the BBC Two programme.

Mr Gibson won the title by answering questions on the TV comedy Father Ted.

His previous subjects included the novels of Iain M Banks and Quentin Tarantino films. He beat five finalists with 31 points and no passes.

Last year's winner, Shaun Wallace, presented Mr Gibson with the famous crystal bowl.

In April 2004 Mr Gibson won 1m on ITV1's Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? - but he still works part time.

Mr Gibson, who is married with two children, is originally from Galway in Ireland.
