Sun, sea and sand await the lucky winner of a kmfm competition who will soon be jetting off to Majorca.

Tara Elliott from Ashford will be enjoying a seven day stay in a James Villa after competing in  The 30th Question quiz on kmfm's Breakfast Show.

Tara, 32, got through to answer the very last question and, thanks to mixture of luck and intuition, she correctly answered that the colours on the Majorcan flag are red and yellow.

The Orion Way, Willesborough, resident said: “It was really nerve wracking because I didn’t really know the answer, so it was a bit of a guess.

“The shop was really busy so the poor customers had to wait while I was on the phone, but I had everyone shouting out that the answer was green and white.

“I only had five seconds to answer, but I remembered that the Spanish flag is red and yellow, so I went for that.”

Tara, 32, was the final person to call in for the quiz, which challenged contestants to successfully complete a chain of 30 questions.

For each correct answer, participants progressed to the next, but dropped out of the chain at their first incorrect answer.

The competition was organised to celebrate the 30th anniversary of James Villa Holidays.

And now the assistant manager of Ashford Fabric Warehouse in Godinton Road, will be leaving work behind to spend a week with her family on the sunny Spanish island.

She added: “I’ve not been abroad for at least six years, and I cannot wait to go.”
