Although Darragh was able to bring back a tremendous amount of money, sadly they only had £6,300 at the end of it.

His teammates had lost £2,700 of the money after going for lower offers which enraged viewers which even sparked a hashtag going around Twitter because of this #JusticeforDarragh.

Some dedicated fans took it even further with setting up a GoFundMe page on his behalf.

But he requested that the money raised be donated to charity.
