The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire contestant walked away with £16,000, but it was a long journey for viewers and an exhausted Jeremy Clarkson.

Tom Young was one of the latest contestants to take part in Who Wants To Be A Millionaire this weekend.

And while he ended up walking away with £16,000, his appearance on the show left viewers and host Jeremy Clarkson exhausted.

So much so that when Tom left with his cash prize, Jeremy couldn't help making a savage comment.

After failing to answer the £32,000 question correctly, Jeremy said: "I won't take up any more of your time. That's wrong..."

He added: "No matter, you came, you saw, you made a mess of it.

"Erm, nevertheless, you are leaving with £16,000."

Viewers of the show branded Tom's time on the show 'painful' after he took too long to answer the questions.

One person wrote on Twitter: "Tom is very hard to watch #WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire."
