Jeremy Clarkson admits that hosting Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? could show us that he’s not the big know-all he seems.
When someone suggested he was in his element with the new “Ask the host” lifeline, Clarkson replied “except I don’t know anything”.
He had seemed to struggle when a contestant used the lifeline, before answering correctly that it was Surrey that played cricket at the Oval.
Ratings for the first of a week of 20th anniversary shows averaged at 5.1 million and peaked at 5.7 million, winning the slot for ITV, and a million up on its normal viewing figures for the time despite the sunny weather.
Reaction to former Top Gear host Clarkson was mixed.
Some said he was “too condescending” to contestants, but others enjoyed his jokes and mocking comments.
At one point, Clarkson told the audience: “No coughing now”, in reference to Charles Ingram, who in 2001 planted a friend in the audience to cough every time a correct answer was read out.
He also joked his “car was on a meter” when a contestant took an age to answer a simple question.
Mirror TV critic Ian Hyland said Clarkson was “perfect” and said the show could be worth a full series after its run this week.

Ricky of Yorkshire won £8,000, while Heather from Woking and Scottish hopeful James got £1,000.
But they all had a grand time.
