lol, if he was really able to predict the lottery, then he would travel the world doing so, especially on big Euromillions Fridays, after a couple of weeks he'd never have to do another crappy channel 4 show ever again!

I remember when he said he would show how to toss a coin and make it lands on heads, ten times in row. I couldn't wait to see it and he did show us. Basically think it took him 10 hours or something and basically just kept tossing the coin until he got ten heads in a row.

I felt robbed.

I reckon he won't actually predict the lottery numbers, more make us all believe that the numbers coming out of the draw are the ones he predicted ? Remember the 'winning' tickets at Walthamstow dogs ?

Is anyone here buying a lottery ticket for Wednesday? I'm gonna, might as well since I'll be watching the Lottery for the first time in a decade Having that tiny bit extra invested in it might be worthwhile as well.

Euromillions apart, don't you need to be a resident of that country to be eligible to qualify for any winnings?

What would be cool is if he picked the numbers, they all failed and then they all came up in next weeks draw...

The BBC have said that their isn't a delay on their broadcasts and the only trickery they employ is in the canned laughter. Really looking forwards to this!

Ha ha - I thought that was brilliant when he revealed that. It did demonstrate that you are far better off not knowing how he does a trick!

Not sure about all lotteries but for many the ticket just has to be bought in the relevantc country. So even if you were a Brit you couldnt buy a ticket for our lottery online if you were outside the country at time of purchase.

Terminals shut far before the draw don't they? Unless you mean placing a bet at the bookies on the lottery numbers

As somebody already said, t's got to be a substitution/sealed envelope thing hasn't it?

It doesn't matter - doesn't the lottery tills close half hour (or is it a hour) before the draw?

That would be way lamer than my solution. He has to say what the numbers are going to be, before they are drawn live on the other channel, otherwise what's the point. We've seen that envelope trick a thousand times... "I've put my answers in this envelope which will not be touched and it won't leave the view of the 'live' camera for a second.. I swear!"

They stop selling tickets at 19:30pm. The draw isn't till 22:35... so 3 hours.

I'm sure I would have worked it out. If not I would have felt enlightened on the practical application of probability theory and impressed at the effort he went to

Why doesn't he do this on the Saturday lottery?
EVERYONE knows that the Wednesday one isn't worth bothering with! It only gets to a poxy couple of million.
