Jeremy Clarkson takes brutal swipe at Jonathan Ross' looks on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire

JEREMY Clarkson took a brutal swipe at Jonathan Ross' looks on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

The 61-year-old took aim at his fellow presenter on Saturday evening after a question relating to the latter’s wife came up on the ITV gameshow.


Jeremy asked contestant Matt Smith: "Which of these has written screenplays for the ‘X-Men’ and ‘Kingsman’ series of films?”

The options were Abi Morgan, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Jane Goldman or Sally Wainwright.

Matt would correctly guess Jane, 51, who has been married to Jonathan, 60, since 1988.

"Yeah she did, I don’t know which X-Men film she wrote – I too didn’t know she had done – but I knew she wrote the Kingsman films. They’re brilliant, Kingsman is just… she’s a star that girl," Jeremy gushed.

However, he did not miss the opportunity to poke a bit of fun at Jonathan, as the former Top Gear host said while sporting a cheeky grin: "Much more talented than her husband… just thought I’d throw that in.”

“He’s really looking his age he is, Jonathan, these days,” he added, before the contestant asked: “You think so?”

Clarkson went on: "A little bit younger than me, but you’d never know, you’d never know.

Matt would end up winning £64,000, but just missed out on bagging an even bigger sum of £125,000.

He was asked: “The Mekong River Delta is located in which Asian country?”

Smith opted to use his lifeline and ask the host for some help and Jeremy joked: "You’ve been to Vietnam. Did you open your eyes when you were there?”

“Did you notice an enormous brown things snaking through the country?"

He added: “From actually, Cambodia, it’s also in there. Luckily for you, I went down the Mekong last year to the South China Sea so know for 100 per cent it’s in Vietnam."
