The Chase star Paul Sinha was furious with himself after dropping a major clanger on the show.
Viewers watched on in disbelief as the comedian chastised himself on the ITV1 daytime favourite.
The contestants were on the show to land a life-changing sum of money on Tuesday, February 11, when the Sinnerman was left red-daced.
Bradley Walsh, the former Coronation Street actor, welcomed Callum, Lynn, Bronagh and Charles to the show.
Last to face Paul was Charles, who wanted to use the prize money for a trip to New Orleans with his wife, reports The Liverpool Echo.
Charles had a very good cash-builder of [pounds sterling]7,000, but after knocking out two other contestants, The Sinnerman was determined to scupper Charles' chances.
During the head-to-head round, Charles made a few mistakes as Paul was set to take victory.
But then The Sinnerman had a nightmare as he made a silly mistake when answering a question.
Host Bradley Walsh asked: "What does the word 'comital' refer to"
The options were A Earl, B A prince or C A king.
Bradley announced the correct answer of 'earl', which left Paul wincing.
The host said: "Ey up he's not happy", to which Paul admitted he'd got it badly wrong.
He said: "I was looking for a count..."
The mistake led Charles to enter the final round with Lynn with [pounds sterling]15,000 in the prize pot.
Luckily for The Sinnerman he pulled it back after beating the pair in the final round, leaving them empty-handed.
