Who Wants to Be a Millionaire returned to ITV and, after contestant Matt Smith got off to a roaring start, a high-earning question about Jonathan Ross’ screenwriter wife Jane Goldman prompted host Jeremy Clarkson to make a joke about the presenter’s appearance. The host didn’t hold back as he tore into Jonathan insisting he looks “good” despite his age.

Contestant Matt got off to a flying start as the travel-enthusiast quickly made his way to £32,000.

“This is it then, this is your £64,000 question,” Jeremy remarked before asking: “Which of these has written screenplays for the X-Men and Kingsman series of films?”

The options given were Abi Morgan, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Jane Goldman, or Sally Wainwright.

Matt briefly completed his answer, but piped up: “I think I know this.”

He explained: “Jane Goldman is the wife of Jonathan Ross and I know that they are both really into comics.

“I didn’t know that she was the screenwriter on X-Men but I’m certain that she was one of the people who wrote the screenplay for Kingsman.

“I’m pretty confident. I’m going to say Jane Goldman, final answer.”

As viewers watched the nail-biting moment, Matt appeared worried

“Don’t look at me like that,” he exclaimed to the host, who laughed: “That’s just my face!”

Fortunately Matt was correct and was able to move a step closer to the million pound question but before he could, Jeremy swiped at ITV colleague Jonathan.

“I too didn’t know she wrote X-Men but I knew that she wrote the Kingsman films and they’re brilliant,” Jeremy said.

Matt clearly agreed, saying: “They’re great films.”

“She’s a star I think,” the host added, discussing Goldman. “Much more talented than her husband. Just thought I’d throw that in there.”

Jeremy continued: “He’s really looking his age Jonathan these days.”

Matt seemed shocked as he replied: “You think so?”

“He’s a little bit younger than me but you’d never know,” Jeremy added, as the studio continued to laugh in the background.

Jane Goldman is, of course, an award-winning screenwriter, known for her frequent collaborations with director and producer Matthew Vaughn.

She has written the scripts for Stardust, Kick-Ass, The Woman In Black, the latest adaptation of Rebecca, and both Kingsman films.

The screenwriter was also credited with reviving the tired X-Men franchise with origin film X-Men: First Class in 2011.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is available to watch on ITV now.
