Chris Hughes congratulates punter’s £113,000 win from JUST £2 – then Love Island star tells him to join him in ice bath

CHRIS HUGHES was the first to congratulate a punter who won £113,000 from just £2 – then told him to join him in an ice bath!

The genius bettor won a total of £112,854 from a £1 each way four fold.

The Love Island star invited the punter to join him in an ice bath

He backed Galvin, Quilixios, Sir Gerhard and Minella Indo all to win.

But he placed the bets at far, far bigger odds than what they actually won at.

Galvin won on Tuesday at 7-2 after being backed at 20-1 while Quilixios was backed at 20-1 and ended up winning at 2-1.

Sir Gerhard was backed at 16-1 and won at just over 2-1 whereas Minella Indo won the Gold Cup at 9-1.

The Henry de Bromhead-trained horse was backed at a much bigger price of 14-1.

Hughes led the plaudits to shrewd punter David Jackson, who posted his slip to Twitter.

He set it live on social media before the Cheltenham showpiece and tagged Hughes in a message that read: “Minella Indo for the jackpot. Might be joining you in an ice bath if this wins!”

Jackson was referring to Love Island star Hughes going topless for an ice bath on ITV coverage.

He and co-presenter Oli Bell took the plunge because there were no winners in the ITV tipping competition.

Hughes tweeted Jackson saying: “Well done mate.

“Get here ASAP, ice bath is ready.”
