Andrew Townsley, a 53 year old retired GP from Glasgow took to the hot seat tonight and faced the £1million question. Still with his Phone A Friend lifeline in play, the question was 'In the history of motor sport, which of these iconic races was held first?'. Unfortunately Andrew, and his Phone A Friend Ailsa, didn't know the answer. Andrew decided to take the money and left with a staggering £500,000.

It is only the second time that Jeremy Clarkson has asked the £1million question since hosting the show and said: "It was nail biting stuff and one of those tv moments I won’t forget in a long time. A thoroughly decent chap and a truly fantastic contender!”


Series overview:
