What’s up with Clarkson’s hair, for example, is one of Millionaire’s unresolved questions.
Garry Bushell, a Sunday TV columnist for Brinkwire, discusses Clarkson’s barnet, Jimmy Carr’s thickness, and Harry Redknapp’s worst defeat since Bournemouth lost 9-0.
“What the hell is going on with Clarkson’s barnet?” was the unanswered question on Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
Is he a regular at Boris Johnson’s blind barbershop?
Or was he carried backwards through his own barley field at Diddly Squat farm?
This four-night celebrity run was full of unexpected twists and turns. Since Bournemouth’s 9-0 defeat to Lincoln City, Harry Redknapp has suffered his greatest defeat.
Jimmy Carr, pictured above, got off to a good start. “Well, I’ve had a nice day…” he joked after winning £100. Carr later crashed and burned through three lifelines on a question regarding the Martian atmosphere, despite the fact that he was correct in his assumption that it was mostly CO2.
To win big, Jimbo, you have to trust your instincts.
There is still no one in the room. Why? Carr joked that it was because Chris Tarrant was more popular. “No, it’s because they wanted Sean Lock,” Clarkson explained. (RIP) Carr then lost £31k on a bet that The Flying Scotsman held the steam train speed record, which was really held by the Mallard, which was built in Clarkson’s hometown of Doncaster.
As Carr went away with a meager $1,000 for his charity, Jezza sniped, “So very hilarious, but thick.”

Based on a cartoon in an advertisement, she guessed telescope. “TV does not deceive us,” the former Gogglebox contestant insisted.
“Oh, it does,” Clarkson responded, emphasizing the difficulty of operating a telescope with one hand.

It worked out well. Nelson lost his right arm at the Battle of Santa Cruz, which Scarlett was unaware of. Tsk, what do they teach youngsters these days in school? Sword was the correct answer.
“He’s a one-handed swordsman,” Jezza explained, adding, “I’m sure that’s a euphemism for something.”
This is not the way to discuss Alex Beresford.
