A contestant on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire couldn’t help but swear live on air after losing out on £15,000.
Bristol-born Justin Beattie appeared on the hit ITV show on Sunday as he was tasked with answering a question for a nice sum of £32,000.
However Justin got answer wrong, despite still having four lifelines left at his disposal.
Justin – who spent 25 years as a submarine safety engineer – breezed through the first few rounds until he reached £16,000.
Host Jeremy Clarkson asked him to identify an athlete who had retired at 26 before making an unsuccessful comeback eight years later.
Justin felt the answer was “definitely” athlete Carl Lewis – however the correct answer was tennis player Björn Borg.
Justin answered the final question with total confidence.
It was then when a shocked Jeremy said: “You’ve just lost £15,000. I’m heartbroken. Well, not as much as you are.”
After a long pause, Justin was naturally disheartened – and what came next was a slew of swear words that expressed his sheer frustration.
“That’s a first. Nobody’s ever said that,” the former Top Gear host told Justin as he chuckled at the reaction.
Justin entered the game show in hopes of winning at least £32,000 to be able to start a micropub.
“They tend to serve local real ale from within a 20 or 30 mile radius,” he explained.
“They’re really stripped down and basic, with casks and kegs of real ale and local cider. And I really fancy that.”
Unfortunately, Justin walked away with just £1,000 – meaning that his dream of kickstarting a micropub will have to happen later.
Tweeting a clip from the programme, Jeremy penned on Twitter : “Felt bad that poor submarine man went out.”
