Surprise 11,000 Olympic ticket bill

Stephen Hunt, the man who applied for £36,000 worth of tickets for the Olympics, has finally found out what he received.

Speaking on the programme in May, Mr Hunt said was relaxed about the potential bill as "the chances of getting one ticket out of that lot is quite small".

So it came as something as a surprise when he was contacted by the ticketing agency because his £11,000 worth of tickets had been denied by his credit card providers.

After having a conversation with his wife, the insolvency practitioner decided to take the tickets.

"It's what credit cards are for, really," he told John Humphrys.
