James and Jeremy, along with Richard Hammond, have been the face of Amazon’s The Grand Tour for four years now.

The former Top Gear trio have become favourites among the streaming service’s subscribers thanks to their self-deprecative friendships and, of course, the cars they get to whizz around in.

Away from The Grand Tour, however, Jeremy has also been putting budding quizzers through their paces on Who Wants to Be a Millionnaire since 2018.

And this week saw him return to the ITV show for its first-ever socially distanced series in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

During Wednesday’s episode, Jeremy welcomed a handful of new players to the hotseat to see if they had what it took to pocket themselves a huge sum of money.

One such contestant was 27-year-old Saul who was keen to take on the long list of questions.

However, during the introductions, Jeremy spotted an opportunity to make a dig at co-host James.

Jeremy said to Saul: “Okay, 27 years old, you are Saul Sylvester from Hammersmith.”

The Who Wants to Be a Millionaire player got off to a relatively steady start, sailing to £1,000 without sparing a lifeline.

However, as per usual, the questions became a bit more tricky, proving hard to Saul to overcome.

At the £16,000 mark, Saul tripped up on a geography question regarding Gibraltar.

Saul ended up using a Phone A Friend and a 50/50 but did eventually make it to the £32,000 milestone.

Saul popped his second safety net on the £32,000 but struggled once more and had to use a Phone A Friend again.

Luckily, Saul’s pal Chris landed him the right answer and he secured at least £32,000.

However, that’s all Saul would be heading home with as he and Jeremy couldn’t figure out the answer to the next question.

Who Wants to Be a Millionnaire continues weekdays at 9pm on ITV.
