Who Wants to Be a Millionaire host overconfidently told a contestant he had got an answer right, but was shocked when the computer told him he was in fact, wrong.

The contestant was asked, "What type of wild animal is an ibex?" and with the Ask the Host lifeline used already, Jeremy Clarkson boasted that he actually knew the answer.

He opted to us the Phone A Friend lifeline and was told the answer was a deer.

Clarkson then confidently locked in the answer and said, "I'm not even going to look at the screen. That's the correct answer."

And that's where Clarkson was completely wrong, as instead of deer, the word goat flashed green for correct.

Just as quickly the contestant thought he had won $62,000, he found out he had actually lost $29,153 and would be going home with just under $2000 instead. 

Clarkson has received a lot of praise for his new role as host of the show but viewers warned him to maybe look at the screen next time.
