So you’d think if he ever appeared on ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ he’d breeze through it, right?
Errrm, well not quite, and we know this because Mark has already been a contestant on the show.
Yep, back in 2006, he took a seat opposite Chris Tarrant in a bid to bag himself a million quid, but how did he do?
Well, unsurprisingly, he sailed through the first few easy rounds but got stumped at the £2000 mark when he had to use his first lifeline - ‘ask the audience’ - for help on answering a question about knitting.
He then used his ‘phone a friend’ lifeline because he didn’t know which fruit was used in a traditional tarte tatin (that’ll be apples, fact fans).
Alas, Mark came a cropper at the £64,000 question, which was: “The best selling novel Miss Smilla’s Feeling For Snow is set chiefly in which country?”
The answer is Denmark, but Mark went for Canada, but he still managed to pocket £32,000.
Not too shabby at all.
“I could have sat here all night and I wouldn’t have known, it was just a guess,” he admitted to Chris Tarrant.
Ah well, at least he didn’t punch anything, unlike the set of ‘The Chase’, which was on the receiving end of Mark’s fist during a recent episode of the ITV quiz show, when he failed to beat the visiting team.
