Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? £1,000,000 question asked – SPOILER

Jeremy Clarkson asked Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’s £1,000,000 question in the latest episode (May 11).


A brand new series of the most famous quiz in the world airs every night at 9PM this week (May 10 – 15) on ITV.

Hosted once again by Jeremy Clarkson. Contestants vie to win the chance of answering 15 questions correctly to win £1,000,000. Four lifelines – Phone a Friend, 50:50, Ask the Audience and Ask the Host – can help them on their way.

The six part series was back with a bang on Tuesday evening as we saw Jeremy Clarkson ask the £1,000,000 question.

To date, there has been five £1 million winners since Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? burst onto TV screens.

On Tuesday, 53-year-old retired doctor Andrew Townsley got all the way to the end of the 15 questions still with one lifeline remaining.

Host Jeremy told him: “This is it, the £1 million question. You’d be the sixth person ever to do it in all the years this show has been on.

“There can’t be that many, I don’t know how many, who even got to half a million.”

The question was “Which of these iconic races was held first?” with answers of Le Mans 24 Hours, Monaco Grand Prix, Indy 500 and Isle Of Man TT.

Not being sure on his answer and with his Phone A Friend also not knowing, Andrew decided to take the £500,000 prize money.

He went to reveal he would’ve guessed Isle Of Man TT which was the correct answer.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? airs nightly at 9pm on ITV, then nightly at 9pm all this week

They added: “Do you think you’ve got what it takes to be the Fastest Finger? Can you cope with the pressure of sitting in the Hot Seat? Have you got the brainpower to make it all the way to the One Million Pound Question?
