Legal help needed after ball gets stuck during Winning Streak filming
Filming had to be halted for a period of time.

A RECORDING OF an episode of Winning Streak was delayed at the weekend after a ball got stuck during the ‘wheel reveal’ section.

Legal help had to be drafted in to deal with the issue, the Irish Sun reported this morning.

However, the situation didn’t have an impact on the overall outcome of the game, the National Lottery said.

On Saturday afternoon, during the recording of the Winning Streak TV gameshow a technical issue occurred which caused a short delay to the filming of the show.
