Adrian Pollock is the brother of Diana Ingram, whose husband Charles was accused of cheating on the show and stripped of his million pound prize. Adrian, from the Vale of Glamorgan in Wales, was a contestant on the show on December 23, 2000. He won £32,000 after missing his £64,000 question. He did not use his Ask The Audience lifeline.

He had appeared previously in the show on January 21 and September 8, 2000 as a Fastest Finger First contestant, but twice failed to make it into the Hot Seat.

Later, he was in the audience when his sister Diana played on April 9, 2001.
