When asked which was sold first and offered the options Macintosh computer, Sony Walkman or Post-it notes, the couple - mostly driven by Mr Okoye - decided on Post-Its.

To their horror, they were told it was the wrong answer - but it later turned out that it was the game show that was in error.

After their plight became the subject of an Internet uproar - and a minor public relations disaster for Fox - the network has decided that it will give the couple a second chance.

Unless the producers actually went to the couple’s bank and took out the money then, no, they didn’t lose it. Money on a gameshow isn’t ‘yours’ until you’ve actually won and been handed the cheque.

I do think it’s silly to ‘give them another chance’ though. They got the right answer, they should be given the money.
