Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? contestant Clea Rawinsky replied with 'oh well' after being told she'd lost £31,000.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire viewers were left shocked on Tuesday night after English teacher Clea Rawinsky lost £31,000 in a matter of seconds.

Clea had used all her lifelines up by the time she got to her losing question, which was: "Which specific activity defines a 'funambulist' at a circus?"

Host Jeremy Clarkson gave her four possible answers which were; lion taming, knife juggling, fire breathing, tightrope walking.
