The former Top Gear star's made the show a night to remember (for all the wrong reasons).

Jeremy Clarkson left viewers wincing with embarrassment after making a huge gaffe on the final of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

While confidence has always been one thing that the TV host doesn't lack, even Clarkson himself couldn't believe how painfully wrong he was after celebrating a contestants incorrect answer.

Poor Alan Horsburgh from Kirkcaldy in Scotland thought he had won £16,000 after answering the multiple choice question: "What type of wild animal is an ibex?"

The contestant had to choose from the options pig, goat, hare and deer to be in with the chance of winning the cash prize.

Certain that he knew the answer, Clarkson who is replacing Chris Tarrant as the quiz show's host for the 20th anniversary, told Alan, "I'm going to really annoy you now. I know the answer."

Having already used all of his lifelines, Alan took a gamble on 'deer' much to the 58-year-old presenter's delight.

"I'm not even going to look at the screen," Clarkson smirked, "That's the correct answer"

Except...it wasn't. 'Goat' was the right answer. Yikes!

Mortified that he had not only got the answer wrong, but then the former Top Gear host had to break the news that Andy had lost £15,000 on top of his embarrassment.

While Clarkson remained mortified, viewers just couldn't help but laugh off their disbelief at the humungous blunder.

Thank God it's the final show, ey Jeremy.
