Highbridge school teacher wins £26,000 on Channel 4's Deal Or No Deal

A former Highbridge school teacher has won £26,000 on Channel 4's hit TV quiz show Deal Or No Deal this week.

Nagib Ghafar is a familiar face to former students of King Alfred School, where he taught maths for several years and ran an after-school chess club.

He has appeared several times on the teatime TV show over the last week but finally got his chance to win a big money prize on Tuesday.

In an exciting episode, Nagib took the banker's offer of £26,000 despite still having the £100,000 prize box until the final minutes of the programme.

However, when he opened his box, he discovered he would have won just £3,000 if he'd gambled to the end - so he made the right decision to take the £26,000 prize.

"I feel marvellous - thank you so much," grinning Nagib told the show's Noel Edmonds at the end of Tuesday's show.

The popular quiz has a top prize of £250,000 and sees the 22 players trying to outwit the banker and walk away with a big sum of money. The latest episodes of Deal or No Deal can be seen on Channel Four's website here.
