A couple took on the Limitless ladder in tonight’s episode of Ant and Dec’s Limitless Win and took home a healthy sum of money.

Ellie and Paul banked £75,000 on their first episode of Limitless Win, which aired on Saturday, February 3.

They answered questions relating to how big a Daily Mirror newspaper was to the nearest centimetre and how many squares there were on a Scrabble board.

Ellie and Paul got exact answers for those questions and admitted they had done some revising beforehand.

Carrying on into tonight's episode (Saturday, February 10), the couple answered questions relating to how many animals escape from the zoo in the film Madagascar and how many countries begin with the letter 'S'.

There was some drama with that question, as their guess of 24 was just two off the actual total of 26 which just denied them going from the £1 million barrier.

Immediately following that they did pass the £1 million mark with a question regarding the maximum number of characters for the name of a racehorse.

The couple will use the £75,000 on a trip to Scotland, with the Isle of Skye being mentioned as one destination.
