Prue Leith angers Who Wants To Be A Millionaire fans as she loses £48k

‘Think all that cakes gone to her head!’ Prue Leith enrages Who Wants To Be A Millionaire viewers as she loses £48k over Titanic question

Prue Leith angered Who Wants To Be A Millionaire viewers on Sunday night after losing a whopping £48,00 for charity.

The Great British Bake Off judge, 80, was a contestant on the celebrity version of the ITV show and had appeared to be doing quite well as she reached the £64,000.

However, she well and truly hit an iceberg as she became stuck on a Titanic question, causing irritated viewers to react on Twitter, with one wondering whether all the cake she eats on GBBO has ‘gone to her head’. 

Oh dear: Prue Leith angered Who Wants To Be A Millionaire viewers on Sunday night after losing a whopping £48,00 for charity

After a stellar start, Prue found herself perplexed as host Jeremy Clarkson read the question: ‘Which of these senior crew members on RMS Titanic survived the sinking?’

The cake expert was given the following possible answers: ‘1st Officer William Murdoch, Chief designer Thomas Andrews, 2nd Officer Charles Lightoller or Captain Edward.’

With Prue unsure, she rang her phone-a-friend and nephew Sam, who told her that he was unsure, but added: ‘I’m fairly sure it wouldn’t be the captain-‘

Shock: The Great British Bake Off judge, 80, was a contestant on the celebrity version of the ITV show and had appeared to be doing quite well as she reached the £64,000

The call then got cut-off, with Prue then opting to use her 50/50 life line. 

She was then left with two options – 2nd Officer Charles Lightoller or Captain Edward – with Prue opting to go for the latter despite her nephew’s advice.

Her answer was found to be incorrect and she lost a huge £48,000, plummeting her total winnings to just £16,000, which her safety net was set at.

And while Jeremy, 60, branded the round ‘a bit of a disaster’, viewers at home also expressed their shock at Prue’s answer, with many aghast that she didn’t realise the ‘captain always goes down with his ship’. 

Uh oh: However, she well and truly hit an iceberg as she became stuck on a Titanic question, causing irritated viewers to react on Twitter, with one wondering whether all the cake she eats on GBBO has ‘gone to her head’

Wrong answer! She was then left with two options – 2nd Officer Charles Lightoller or Captain Edward – with Prue opting to go for the latter despite her nephew’s advice

‘The captain goes down with his ship! C’mon Prue!’ vented one enraged viewer.

While another remarked: ‘Y on earth would prue do that #WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire would she have done that if it had been her cash i doubt it.’ [sic]

‘Doesn’t prue know the rule of the captain goes down with the ship?’ questioned a third watcher. 

Not impressed: While Jeremy, 60, branded the round ‘a bit of a disaster’, viewers at home also expressed their shock at Prue’s answer

‘Think all that cakes gone to Prue’s head!’ noted a fourth shocked person.

A fifth cheeky fan added: ‘I always preferred Mary Berry over Prue Leith anyway.’

With a further viewer questioning: ‘Why would Prue gamble £48,000 of a charities money with an answer she hasn’t got a clue is right.’ 

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is available to watch on ITV Hub.
