The Bay has given away £8,620 to a listener who finally guessed The Bay’s Secret Sound after 22 months in play.
The winner – Helen Moran from Lancaster – has explained how she came up with the correct answer of a webcam. Helen left presenter Martin Emery stunned when she correctly guessed the answer to the long-running competition.
Helen, who works at Lancaster and Morecambe College, told The Bay’s Tony Cookson that she might spend her winnings on a holiday and a break for her parents. She added that Portugal is the top of her list – and that she’d now book a suite instead of “just a room”.
She also said the money would come in handy for Christmas shopping, and she would save the rest for the new year.
Helen said she was convinced the answer was camera-related, and kept a list of all the possible answers by her telephone. After crossing off wrong answers each day, Helen decided to call in when the only answer left on her list that nobody else had suggested.
