A contestant on Michael McIntyre’s The Wheel managed to beat the odds, despite picking the’ worst ‘expert Stacey Dooley on the last question

Erica Ellicott had missed most of the game after not being selected on The Wheel, but did manage to win the grand prize

After Erica managed to finish The Wheel, Erica had a choice of three experts – strongest player Judy Murray, middle player Vikkstar and weakest player Stacey Dooley

If Erica chose Judy, the last question would be 14000 pounds, at Vikkstar 28000 pounds and Stacey 56000 pounds

Erica took the ultimate gamble and picked Stacey to go with her on the final question: “Who was Time Magazine Person of the Year in 2008 and 2012?”

Erica and Stacey had to fight between Queen Elizabeth II, Barack Obama, Beyonce and Pope Francis decide and between them they managed to decipher that the correct answer was indeed Barack Obama

The audience was overjoyed to see Erica shoveling the life-changing sum on The Wheel and tweeting: “What a win !!!” and “Oh, good mood for Erika”

Others added, “Buzzing for Erica on #thewheel has already made my year!” and “YES Stacey Dooley, very happy Erica won the money #TheWheel Great Show tonight, @McInTweet does it”

Absolutely can’t handle the fact that Stacey Dooley, who has a career as a current affairs documentary filmmaker, didn’t know that 2008 and 2012 were the years that Obama won the presidency #TheWheel

Some viewers joked that Stacey should have been more certain of the answer since the years were the US election

They wrote, “Absolutely can’t handle the fact that Stacey Dooley, who has a career as a current affairs documentary filmmaker, didn’t know that 2008 and 2012 were the years Obama won the presidency”’

Erica’s win also came after his competitor Andy made it to The Wheel four times over the course of the show but couldn’t make it to the end
