Who Wants To Be A Millionaire viewers were left upset after a contestant left the show with nothing after being asked, what some viewers branded, a “trick question”. Host of the popular show Jeremy Clarkson has previously explained that the hit ITV quiz show doesn’t do trick questions.

But after contestant John McKenna crashed out with nothing after failing one of his early questions, despite using his Ask The Audience lifeline, fans were sceptical. He had been asked: “Which of these is a thick omelette made with fried onion and potatoes, popular in Spain?”

He was given the choices of Tortilla, Churros, Croquetas and Gazpacho and went with Croquetas on the advice of the audience. But he was left with his head in his hands after Jeremy announced the correct answer with Tortilla.

Jeremy cuttingly told him: “I’m afraid you’re only the second person in my tenure to be leaving with absolutely nothing at all.”

Viewers quickly accused the show of breaking its own rule around trick questions, reports Birmingham Live.

@gregzj commented: “I thought there wasn’t supposed to be a trick question. If it stated egg, potato and onion surely it would have less ambiguous. #whowantstobeamillionaire.”

@lyla95 asked: “#WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire Surely that was sort of a trick question for that amount of money?” @Jesikinz agreed: “That was a trick question and I feel so bad for that fella! #WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire.”

@youxkay said: “That was an unfortunate trick question. Even Google says tortilla is a wrap unless you type Spanish Tortilla #whowantstobeamillionaire.”

@Legen_dary93 said: “I would’ve been out too what a trick question tbh #Whowantstobeamillionaire.” And @jonnymgdraws added: “There’s no trick questions on Millionaire…” U SURE HUN? #whowantstobeamillionaire.”
