Who Wants to be a Millionaire? cheat Tecwen Whittock's attempt to make a few bucks on the after-dinner speaking circuit is looking like a non-starter.
Whittock recently announced that he would be "available for any occasions which require a speaker in the UK or abroad''. But the leading after-dinner speaking agency, JLA - whose clients include Nick Leeson - has blacklisted the coughing college lecturer. "If he thinks he can cash in on this, he's wrong," warns a JLA spokesman.
``There'd be nothing positive to take away from a Tecwen Whittock speech."
