Sammy was given the option of sticking with the £4,000 she'd won in the cash builder round or gamble on the chance of taking home £70k.

Having already lost all her team mates, she decided to stick, turning down the offer and telling Chaser, The Sinnerman: "That’s how much I bought my house for."

The average cost of a one bedroom flat in London is £400,000 – and it seems people from other parts of the country were a little aggrieved that’s its so cheap to grab a house in Doncaster,

One moaned on Twitter: "As if you can get a house for 70 grand in some places I hate London sometimes,” while another said: "£70k for her house, does she live in a f***ing shed?"

And another posted: “People getting their knickers in a twist about houses outside London being £70k. Yh that's cause house prices in London are extortionate, p.s I live in London.”

And another viewer added: "70k for a house!! Can’t even get a static caravan for that near me."
