Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?: Jeremy Clarkson defended as viewers brand him ‘rude’

They said he was just 'being himself'

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? viewers defended host Jeremy Clarkson after he was accused of being “rude” to the contestants.

The 60-year-old star was lambasted after he told one contestant on last night’s show (Sunday February 14) that he had “made a mess of it” after answering a question incorrectly.

But fans of the star soon took to social media to defend him.

What happened with Jeremy Clarkson on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? last night?

Contestant Tom struggled to get to the £16,000 mark, and was clearly having problems with some of the questions.

To get to that point, he had used all of his lifelines up.

However, he had a free shot at £32k, but faltered again on a question about a Nordic drama series.

“Pointless me trying to talk through logic because there won’t be any,” Tom said.

“I’ve got nothing else to go on and nothing to lose so I think Wallander final answer.”

“I won’t take up any more of your time. That’s wrong,” Jeremy retorted.

What did Jeremy Clarkson say to contestant Tom on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

Jeremy explained the answer to Tom: “It was in fact Borgen.

“Just in case you are interested at home, Borgen is the nickname for Christiansborg Palace.

“No matter, you came, you saw, you made a mess of it. Nevertheless, you are leaving with £16,000.”

That’s when a fierce debate on Twitter took place.
