NEWPORT'S Kimberly Horner took on the self-styled Queen of Mean and won when she scooped £3,070 on the BBC's Weakest Link.
The 50-year-old mother-of-two, who is originally from Duluth, Minnesota, triumphed in the quiz hosted by Anne Robinson last month and her success was screened on Friday.
Mrs Horner, who moved to Newport in September, said she went on the programme after gaining confidence from losing five stones in weight.
"Friends were telling me it would be very scary and I did get a bit of banter from Anne for being American, living in Essex and going to church, but about 80 per cent of it got cut from the programme.
