Jimmy Carr gives contestant £18,000 after I Literally Just Told You mistake

JIMMY Carr's telly quiz I Literally Just Told You does what it says on the tin, with all the answers given throughout the show.

Well, that’s apart from the occasion they forgot to do just that – leaving one contestant empty handed.

Sainsbury’s worker Eddy, from Glasgow, lost out on the £18,000 jackpot because of the error, when he could not give pop star Ariana Grande’s age. So comedian Jimmy ‘owned the mistake’ – and forked out the prize money.

Eddy was brought on stage at one of Jimmy’s gigs where he was surprised with a giant cheque.

The 8 Out Of 10 Cats host said to Jimmy: “Now I’ve got something to tell you, I’ve got something to confess.

“You lost the money on a question – it was Ariana Grande’s age.

“We talked about her age but we never gave you the specific age so we messed up.

“And when you mess up in life, you’ve got to own your mistakes. Here’s a cheque for £18,000.”

Sue rants at posh ‘Eddies’

HI DE HI legend SU Pollard first stepped into the spotlight on Opportunity Knocks.

So she’s got a bee in her bonnet about actors who hit the big time thanks to their posh education.

And Eddie Redmayne gets a grilling for boasting about his background. Chatting on the Proper Class podcast, Su said: “Everybody’s the same. You see, what’s really got on my nerves in the last two or three years is when a lot of people are making too much of this.

“It’s the Eddie Redmaynes of the world, the upper class.

“I’m only using him as an example because he’s the first one to tell you he’s from Eton!”

Su said that some in the profession had succeeded because they had “been fortunate to have a good education”.

Sophie: Son blew my cover

UNMASKED celebrities on The Masked Singer rave about the security that keeps their identities safe.

Chandelier star Heather Small told me earlier this week: “MI5 has nothing on it. It’s a puzzle within a puzzle within a puzzle.”

Tell that to Sophie Ellis-Bextor, whose son Kit, 12, accidentally revealed she was behind Alien when he posted a video on TikTok ahead of the episode being broadcast in Series Two in December 2020.

Writing in her book Spinning Plates, she said: “About a week after I did the show, I glanced at Kit’s TikTok to see if he was behaving himself and he’d posted a montage of shots … photos of me in the suit, holding the mask.

“I phoned him in a panic and then, ‘Oh don’t worry, Mummy,’ he replied, sounding very relaxed, ‘it’s been up for a week and it’s hardly had any likes!’.”

Deborah puts £5m into den

THEY say the price of fame can be high – and no one knows that better than Deborah Meaden.

The business mogul is back on our screens tonight with Dragon’s Den.
But she says her involvement in the show has cost her millions since she signed up and began investing in contestants’ new ventures in 2006.

Deborah, who is said to be worth £60million, said: “It is probably the only show in the world that has cost me nearly £5m to be in.

“I have invested £5m. I am on the upside so I can’t complain.”

Deborah has helped 63 businesses through the show – and has slammed rich folk who fritter their money away instead.

She added: “I would not use my money to go into space. I think they have got more money than sense.”

Dragon’s Den returns tonight at 8pm on BBC One.

I'd love Antique Mo-show

HE’S made his name hosting The Big Narstie Show alongside the eponymous grime star, but Mo Gilligan has far loftier career aspirations.

The comedian, who’s currently on air with The Masked Singer, is gunning for Fiona Bruce’s job.

He said: “I really wanna do Antiques Roadshow.

“I am so intrigued to just be there while someone’s thing is getting valued. It is my favourite part of the show.

“The Antiques Roadshow is a gem. I wanna see some young people with heirlooms, like ‘Where did you get this from?’ And they are like ‘Bruv, my grandad died. I need to know how much it is as I have got to pay the rent.

“That and Homes Under the Hammer. That is my greatest TV show.”

Now this I’d pay to see.
