Jeremy Clarkson Interview:

What advice would you give to a contestant coming on the show?

Jeremy Clarkson "What I actually do say to them is to research me. There’s nothing you can do about Ask the Audience. You've chosen your Phone a Friend. 50/50 is what it is. The only one that's verifiable is me. And if you think that I'm just a guy who knows about cars – which I don't really – and there's no car question, which is likely then you're wasting your time. There was a guy in the last series and one of his questions was about torque. He asked the audience. Really? Ok fine. His next question was about tiramisu. He asked me. Are you mad? I said to him, ‘There's no point asking me about Greek mythology or tiramisu.’ If it's about the 1981 Volkswagen Golf GTI I'm your man. Or anything about 1970s prog rock band Curved Air. Fashion is another one that's cropped up in this run. He asked me a question about some fashion designer. I know Levi's and that's it. So my advice is research me and set your safety net higher than you feel comfortable with. If you're a gambler, gamble on setting that higher. If you set it at £32k and you’re at £125k and you get it wrong that's a big drop. Lot of money to lose."

What subject do you wish you knew more about?

Jeremy Clarkson "Greek mythology because it always crops up. I genuinely know nothing about it. And I'm not interested. They bought me a book on it but I prefer Jack Reacher."

What celebrity paring would you like to see on Millionaire?

Jeremy Clarkson "Johnny Vaughan and Charlie Brooker."

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? is filmed and post-produced at dock10.
