Charlie found himself in a bit of a pickle on the show, as he struggled to conjure up the answers to the questions. Jeremy Clarkson observed that he was "macheteing his way through his lifelines". It got to a history question and Charlie told Jeremy: "You talked about weak subjects – history is one of them." Jeremy intercepted Charlie and sarcastically said: "Every one is so far."

Before he phoned John, an exasperated Charlie said: "If he doesn't know this I'll lose faith in humanity." Jeremy added: "So will I." Unfortunately for Charlie history student pal James had no idea what the answer was out of "King John, King William I, King Edward III or Henry V." Who Wants To Be A Millionaire's Jeremy Clarkson branded 'waste of a lifeline' When the phone call ended, a stunned Jeremy then quizzed: "What did he get for his history degree?"

One social networker said: "A history degree and he didn't know John signed the Magna Carta?
No wonder apprenticeships are becoming more popular!" While another added: "Seriously, this is important British history!!! Who the f*** doesn't know who signed the Magna Carta?!"
