JEREMY Clarkson was left jaw-dropped after discovering he shared a personal connection with a contestant on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
In Saturday night’s episode, the ITV host ended up quizzing Mindy Dhanda, a chemistry teacher from Rugby.
While reading notes about Mindy, Jeremy soon learned he shared a personal connection with the contestant.
“You’re Mindy Dhanda, you’re a chemistry teacher from Rugby and I’ve just seen in your notes you’re a chemistry teacher who taught chemistry to my son,” Jeremy told the audience.
Mindy confirmed he did indeed teach Jeremy’s son, to which the former Top Gear host could help but poke fun at his son.
“Well, I shall try to be less of a bother to you than he was back in the day,” he joked, to which Mindy informed him that his son had actually been an “excellent” student.
“Well you’re just saying that now to curry favour, but it’ll make no good!” Jeremy joked.
Jeremy is father to three children – daughters Emily, 27, and Katya, 20, and son Finlo, 24 – with his ex-wife Frances Cain.
The former couple separated in 2014 after 21 years of marriage.
Despite sharing a special connection with Jeremy, Mindy didn’t quite make it to millionaire status after stumbling over the £64,000 question about the Dutch Golden Age.
And Jeremy couldn’t resist poking more fun at the contestant, as he brutally declared: “I’m starting to understand now why my son c**ked up his A-levels – none of you know anything!”
Chemistry teacher Mindy eventually walked away with a cool £32,000.
