One question about the UK government turned up the heat between two of the competitors.
Host Ben Shephard asked: “How many UK Prime Ministers served between the year 2000 and the 1st of October 2020?”
After pondering over the answer, Ferne said: “I’m going to say five.”

Ben noticed that competitor Iain was agreeing with her answers and asked: “Iain you’re nodding?”
He replied: “That is the correct answer.”
A shocked Ben said: “I do that bit!”
Fern got the correct answer and asked Ben to drop the counter in zone two.

She said: “If it can go to the left I’d be very, very happy. Okay here we go!”
Annoyingly, the counter didn’t drop where she wanted it to and she shouted: “Oh man!”
In a sarcastic tone Iain said: “That looks nice there…”
The former This Morning presenter replied: “Don’t patronise me.”
