A barber who proved he was head and shoulders above the rest when he appeared on a primetime TV gameshow told The Bolton News he had the 'best wedding ever' with his winnings.

Chris Unsworth, who grew up in Ainsworth, and now lives in Westhoughton, appeared on The Wheel  last Saturday night.

And he managed to walk away with  £12,500 after he answered wrongly twice,  and being brought up again to strike it lucky on his third attempt.

Celebrities who appeared on the show to help contestants answer questions to win a huge cash prize, included Paddy McGuinness, who appeared as an expert in Karate.

Paddy was also second in the celebrity leaderboard for getting questions right - although the wheel did not stop at him.

Chris told The Bolton News: “The best thing about the show was the whole day filming, meeting some amazing people who helped create the show.

“And the two other contestants Matty and Karen were an absolute pleasure to be around; you couldn’t find two nicer people and I still keep in contact with them now.”

When asked by presenter Michael McIntyre what he would do if he won big, Chris said he would spend it on a honeymoon, and a bigger wedding with a free bar.

And since being on the show Chris and Morgan had the 'best wedding ever' in August and jetted off to Barbados for their honeymoon.

He said: “We certainly did have the best wedding ever which was just perfect with family and friends all there.

“And the honeymoon was brilliant, we flew off to Barbados and met some amazing people there too.”

Chris says that the idea came about after laughing whilst watching an episode with his wife.

He said: “The driving factor for me going on the show was my wife.

“We laughed watching the show, teasing each other how well we’d do on it which then led to me signing up and eventually getting that call to be on the show.”

Chris runs and owns Fontaines Barbershop in Whitefield with his brother Jack, as well working alongside some of their best friends.

During his childhood Chris spent time on Bolton Market alongside his dad and uncle who co-owned Unsworth’s deli on the market stall.
