A Donegal man is hoping to go on a Winning Streak this weekend when he appears on the National Lottery TV game show, this Saturday on RTÉ One.

Christopher Chambers, from Letterkenny, was visiting friends last Saturday night when his wife Michelle excitedly burst through the door to tell him that he had been called out to appear on this weekend’s show.

The couple were with enjoying a quiet evening in with friends, Mary and Willie Kee, but news of their Winning Streak appearance turned it into a memorable night of celebrations.


Christopher may be celebrating his Winning Streak appearance this Saturday but the most important event this weekend is his firstt wedding anniversary tomorrow.

Christopher met Michelle over five years ago and they are looking forward to marking their anniversary with a memorable trip to the Winning Streak studios at the weekend.

Christopher has worked for Aurivo (Donegal Creameries) for the past five years and has been inundated with messages of support from colleagues, neighbours and friends since his name was called out on the show.



Christopher will be joined in RTÉ studios by his daughter Stacey, his parents Margaret and John, his two brothers, Andrea and Barry and his two sisters Margo and Mary.



Christopher has no real for his plans for his winnings as of yet but he will be in touch with Santa to make sure that his daughter Stacey has an extra special birthday and Christmas as she turns 10 on Christmas Eve.

Christopher will be one of five contestants who will be hoping to get to "spin the wheel" and win the top prize of €500,000.
