Who Wants to be a Millionaire player furiously swears after narrowly losing £15k

A Who Wants to be a Millionaire contestant couldn't contain his disappointment after losing £15,000 on the show.

Justin Beattie, of Bristol, Gloucestershire, answered the £32,000 question wrong on Sunday evening's show.

The contestant sailed to the £16,000 mark and appeared confident and he took on his next question with four lifelines left.

Jeremy Clarkson asked Justin, who spent 25 years as a submarine safety engineer, to identify a sportsman who retired at 26 before making an unsuccessful return eight years later.

Justin was confident that the answer was athlete Carl Lewis – telling Jeremy it was "definitely" him.

But Justin was devastated when he discovered the answer was tennis player Björn Borg.

The former Top Gear host told him: "You've just lost £15,000. I'm heartbroken. Well, not as much as you are."

After a long silence, Justin put his hands on his mouth, before a string of expletives bleeped by ITV, flew out of his mouth.

The former Top Gear host told Justin: "That's a first. Nobody's ever said that."

Justin told earlier on the show he hoped to win at least £32,000 so he could start a micropub.

Clarkson then giggled as he said: "They tend to serve local real ale from within a 20 or 30 mile radius.

"They're really stripped down and basic, with casks and kegs of real ale and local cider. And I really fancy that."

Justin also discussed his seafaring job, saying a submarine sometimes "rolls like a Coke can" and discussed how he reckons Mel Gibson's Braveheart is "historically inaccurate".

As the show aired, Clarkson tweeted: "Felt bad that poor submarine man went out."
