Everyone was saying the same thing about last night's Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

Oh dear.

The recently-revived Who Wants To Be a Millionaire had everyone buzzing on Tuesday night - and probably not for the best reason.


Among the many contestants on the show, we were introduced to Lynn.

She was hoping to win enough money to buy a conservatory, while her husband, Ian, was looking at a Bugatti Chiron.

And things looked off for a good start. Even a great start, maybe.


It all began when, in the fastest fingers round, she became the only would-be contestant to put six different UK honours in the correct order.

She began to zip through the questions, with only a slight hiccup on a question about the famous We Can Do It posters from World War Two - which led to her using her 50/50 lifeline.

Lynn made it to the £32,000 question and we were all rooting for her to keep succeeding.


And then things went sideways.

Host Jeremy Clarkson read out the £64,000 question, which said:

"In 2016, whom did Boris Johnson succeed as Foreign Secretary? Liam Fox, Philip Hammond, Kenneth Clarke or William Hague."


Straight away, Lynn insisted "it wasn't Hammond", but wasn't totally sure of the correct answer.

She used her Ask The Host lifeline. Jeremy Clarkson told her that he thought it was William Hague, but wasn't entirely sure.

So, she rang her husband Ian - who also wasn't 100 per cent sure, but thought the answer was Phillip Hammond.

Lynn said that she didn't think it was Hammond as "he was a money man", before choosing Hague as her final answer.


She was ultimately left devastated after Jeremy told her that she had just lost £31,000 as the answer, as Ian had said, was Hammond.

It's not all bad, because she still did walk away with the £1,000 - but the host (and viewers at home) reckoned Ian may not be too happy.
