Dying Deal Or No Deal star who won £5 breaks down in tears on GMB

GMB: Deal or No Deal’s Brad emotional over fundraising

Brad Wale, 29, was devastated when he won just £5 on Deal Or No Deal following a tense episode of the ITV programme which is hosted by Stephen Mulhern.

Brad who has MND told Stephen: “This is my life. I’ve always had such bad luck. Nothing changes, I should have expected this.”

Following his episode airing, someone launched an online fundraiser for him which has now reached more than £60,000.

Appearing on Wednesday’s instalment of Good Morning Britain, Brad told host Susanna Reid: “I’ve got one thing on my list, I’ve always wanted a Ben Shephard blanket.”

Susanna quipped: “You don’t need to spend any money on that, we’ve got a cupboard full of them. We will send one to you straight away.”

When asked what else he would do with the money, Brad said he would love to fly to India and Thailand for a holiday of a lifetime.

“It’s basically going to see places really, and I’ve always wanted to do a bungee jump,” he added.

“I’ve always been skint and I feel honoured, blessed and guilty all at the same time – like I don’t like taking money off anyone.”

Getting tearful, he continued: “To be given this kindness to me, is something I’d never, ever expect.”

Brad broke down in tears during the interview as he got emotional talking about the kindness of strangers who had donated to his cause.

Viewes headed to X, formerly known as Twitter, during the moving interview to express their thoughts about Brad.

One fan wrote: “Had me crying last week and crying again this morning. What a lovely guy. He shouldn’t feel guilty at all, people have chosen themselves to donate. He hasn’t asked. Big hugs to him.”

A second penned: “Please don’t forget all MND warriors fighting this disease in the UK, including me. Brad’s so young and a special person. I think it’s great that he’s highlighting this terminal disease.”

MND is a terminal condition which affects the nerves and brain. It causes weakness and gets worse as time goes on.

Another viewer wrote: “Aww what a lovely guy, didn’t expect to be crying this morning!”

John penned: “A nice enough guy, unfortunately, he is just one of hundreds of thousands suffering from a life-limiting illness or disease. I wish we could make all their dreams come true.”

Good Morning Britain continues on weekdays between 6am and 9am on ITV and ITVX.
