Cumbria-based homeworker Michele Kirkbride won the Free Radio box office on Tuesday (March 24).
During the race, Kirkbridge answered the phone in five ringtones, collecting £ 55,555.55.
“I am used to working quickly – I immediately answered,” he told TTG. “I really can’t believe it.”
Kirkbride said he was “very often” struggling with industry challenges amid a coronavirus pandemic – with several reservations canceled this month.
“To be honest, I can’t come at a better time – this is amazing,” he added. “I have to cancel my own holiday in the Maldives, so I will definitely rewrite the first thing I will do with the money.”
