The Weakest Link viewers all have same complaint about winner Patrick Grant's chosen charity
THE Weakest Link viewers were left fuming this evening as Sewing Bee star Patrick Grant picked a controversial charity to give his winning money to.
The Scottish fashion designer, 49, beat Dave Gorman in the final and decided to give the impressive £9,400 prize fund to the British Textile Biennial.
The British Textile Biennial funds exhibitions and installations across East Lancashire.
Those watching at home were baffled by his choice and questioned if there might have been something more worthy.
One person wrote: “#theweakestlink rubbish choice of charity.”
A second questioned: “Textiles??? Not a charity #Theweakestlink.”
While a third tweeted: “Homeless charities, poverty charities in dire need and he donates it to textiles!!! God Almighty. #Theweakestlink.”

And a fourth added: “I don’t usually judge on the charities these celebrities give to but seriously 9k+ to a textile exhibition #Theweakestlink.”

The popular quiz show recently returned to TV with Romesh Ranganathan hosting, instead of Anne Robinson.
Anne hosted the hit BBC quiz show from 2000 to 2012 and won a legion of fans with her harsh put-downs and famous wink at the end of each episode.
Now, almost ten years on, the show has been revived with Romesh at the helm – but the comedian has made it clear he has no intention of trying to copy his predecessor.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: "Look, Anne was amazing at it, and she was a big reason why the show was so popular in the way that she did it.
"But I don't think any good can come from trying to emulate that or be like that."
