And, not only was she beautiful  – she eased through the early rounds, bagging £64k.

On one of her questions, Mainga was asked: “In 2013, Penguin merged with which other company to form the world’s largest book publisher?”

The answer options were, Simon & Schuster, Random House, Pan Macmillan and Harper Collins.

Mainga looked thrilled and said: “I can’t believe this. I used to work there. I was there when they merged! It was Random House!

“So I worked at Random House Publishers and then we merged with Penguin to become Penguin Random House.”

Although she failed to answer the £250,000 question correctly, viewers were already smitten.

Who did viewers react?

One viewer wrote: “This woman is so sassy – I love her!”

Another gushed: “#WWTBAM Mainga is a goddess. I flicked on this by accident but she captivated me!”

Who is this beautiful queen on Millionaire?

“Who is this beautiful queen on Millionaire?” another fan asked.

Another said: “Mainga is flirting with Jeremy and he likes it!”

Finally, one viewers asked: “How stunning is this woman on #WWTBAM!!! [heart-for-eyes emoji]

“We also think @JeremyClarkson is in love!!”

Was host Jeremy Clarkson smitten as much as the audience at home?

Yes, it did look as though host Jeremy was a little smitten with Mainga.

When she got the £125k question wrong, he said: “Well, it’s obviously sad because I was enjoying your company.

“I was hoping you would go very far because you did have a lifeline left.”
