When she won the cash, she jumped up out of her seat in excitement and began to cry with happiness.

After she walked off, Bradley Walsh pointed at the chair and said: “She completely scammed us all.”

He added: “‘I’ve got to sit down, oh I’m not sure what I’m doing, I’m going to win a cat. Forty large, ta-da, love. See ya.’ Unbelievable!”

Robyn told The Sun : “I understand maybe he thought I didn’t need a chair but I really can’t stand for more than 10 mins or so before my legs may give way.

“I would gladly give back the £40k in exchange for being cancer-free.”

She wrote online: “I didn’t appreciate Brad calling me ‘a scammer’ though (for laughs I know but some may unkindly think the same now he has planted the seed).

“I understand maybe he thought I didn’t need a chair but I really can’t stand for more than 10 mins or so before my legs may give way.

“I’ve ended up sitting on the floor in my bank when refused a chair when I asked for it.

“I had cancer last year for which I had to fight for surgery and aggressive chemo as at 72 I only had a 15% chance of five-year survival – they tried to relegate me to palliative care alone and, had I accepted that, I would be dead by now.

“The horrendous chemo kept me cancer-free for 10 months but now it is back in my lymph nodes.

“The chemotherapy left me with emphysema and shortness of breath on exertion and weakness in legs and arms as well as some peripheral neuropathy.

“The leaping out of the chair on realising I had won was a pure adrenalin rush.”
