Jeremy Clarkson ‘fuming’ as Who Wants To Be A Millionaire contestant makes dig at his IQ

Jeremy Clarkson is left very unimpressed tonight as a contestant makes an awkward dig at his IQ on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire tonight.

The host hasn’t got the best track record as a lifeline to contestants on the show (Ibex-gate, anyone?).

And now some appear to be reluctant about asking him anything for fear of him steering them in the wrong direction.

Tonight, professional poker player Jon Stitcher from Merseyside gets stuck on a question about the Google logo.

He decides to phone a friend about the question asking what colour the two letter Gs are in the standard logo.

Unfortunately for him, his friend is unsure and he is forced to do 50-50 to take away two wrong answers.

"Well the one I thought it was has gone – I thought it was red," he says sighing. "So, as you say, you’ve got to take a gamble at times."

But he adds to Jeremy: "No offence, but I don’t think asking you at this time is going to be particularly fruitful so I’ll take my risk."

Jeremy makes a face and Jon realises that he has, indeed, offended Jeremy.

Backpedaling, Jon insists: "Well I want to save you for something harder!"

Yeah, sure you did Jon…
