Justin Beattie Shocked Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Viewers last night when he swore on the ITV quiz show.
The candidate, a submarine safety engineer from Bristol, put explosives on the watershed last night (Sunday January 24th) and impressed host Jeremy Clarkson.
What happened to Justin Beattie who wants to be a millionaire?
During the Sunday episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Justin unfortunately lost £ 15,000.
He had just set his own safety net at £ 32,000 and wanted to answer that amount with a sports question.
Host Jeremy asked, “Which athlete retired at the age of just 26 before returning to competition eight years later without success?”

The options were a) Björn Borg, b) Alain Prost, c) George Foreman, or d) Carl Lewis.
Justin still had his lifelines, but was very confident that he knew the correct answer.
He talked to Jeremy about the possible answers before telling the presenter, “Yes, the answer is definitely Carl Lewis, the definitive answer.”
After the usual pause to build up tension, Jeremy replied in disbelief: “That’s the wrong answer, it’s Björn Borg.
I’m heartbroken too, I don’t mean as much as you do.
“You just lost £ 15,000.”
Justin sat in stunned silence with his hands over his mouth as Jeremy continued, “I’m heartbroken too, I don’t mean as much as you.”
Justin then cursed and let the show let out his words when he realized he was going home with £ 1,000.
Jeremy said to him with a laugh: “This is a first! Nobody has said that before. “
What did ITV viewers say?
On Twitter, Justin’s reaction surprised viewers while others sympathized, saying they had done the same.
One tweeted: “There was no need to swear #whowantstobeamillionaire.”
