Over 16 million people were watching when the Discovery Centre at Llanelli featured as part of the show's 'sofa challenge'.

Viewers had to get guess the area, get to the destination with a suitcase and passport to be in with a chance of winning a holiday.

Minutes after Llanelli Beach was flashed on TV screen hundreds of people with suitcases and passports flooded North Dock.

Some 43 contestants registered and winning number 18, belonging to Richard Barrett, aged 60, was whisked off in a limousine for a two-week Mediterranean cruise after the show.

I was cooking food and the picture flashed up on the screen. I ran out of the door all the way to the centre.

When I got there I was told I had to have my suitcase and passport which I had missed, so I ran back home and back again, the rest is history.

I have never won anything and I can’t believe it.

– Winner Richard Barrett
