Phillip Schofield emotional on Million Pound Cube as dad gives £100,000 winnings to his children

PHILLIP Schofield looked teary on Million Pound Cube last night when a player won £100,000 - and give the lot to his children.

Contestant Adam broke down in tears after storming through the rounds alongside his son Rhys and was almost unable to speak.

An emotional Phillip told him: "You’ve just changed the life of your kids."

At that, overwhelmed Adam put his hands to his eyes, replying: "It’s a bit much to take in."

Phillip said: "That was beautifully played and beautifully emotional - you haven’t beaten The Cube but you have taken £100,000 from it."

Adam told the 56-year-old host that he was giving his winnings to his daughter Rachel, who was watching from the audience, while his son could have the other half.

Viewers at home were in pieces, with one tweeting: "Okay all jokes aside, what a legend to win that for his children. The emotion at the end got me. Well done Adam!"

Another wrote: "I absolutely love Adam. What a caring father! So happy for him and his kids!"

The pair had burned through their lives on a particularly tricky challenge where he had to turn over red and white cylinders before the time ran out.

He managed it after using the 'Simplify' lifeline that made the game slightly easier to complete.
