It’s February 1956, and 95-year-old Samuel J. Seymour is appearing on an episode of I’ve Got a Secret – a popular game show of the day. The format sees a guest appearing before a panel of four, who all fire questions at the individual in a bid to figure out the revelation. And once the quartet of guessers strike lucky, they’re completely stunned.
What’s more, Seymour’s secret stands as arguably the most incredible to ever be unveiled on the series. I’ve Got a Secret originally aired from 1952 to 1967, although there were also revivals in the 1970s and early 2000s. And among the guests during that run were drummer Pete Best, whose revealed on the show that he had been a member of The Beatles before they broke big.
