Mastermind Viewers Furious After Claiming New Champion Won With 'Wrong' Answer

Mastermind Viewers Furious After Claiming New Champion Won With 'Wrong' Answer

Fans of BBC quiz show Mastermind have been left furious after they believe the new champion won by giving the wrong answer.

Let me explain. Judith Lewis took the Mastermind crown after she was asked what the mascot of the Army's Desert Rats was. The answer was a jerboa (obvs), but many are saying that Judith blagged it, by saying the word gerbil.

The two animals look quite similar, and also sound very similar.

The 59-year-old NHS psychiatrist finished on 28 points - one more than second place Ian Orriss.

And what does one do when faced with an annoying bit of telly? That's right, head straight to Twitter.

Quiz master John Humphrys, 75, was taken to task on social media for supposedly accepting the 'incorrect answer' and given a fair amount of stick, with even so called TV types wading in on the debate. Although not everyone agreed, and some people even gave us a visual aid to help make our mind up.

Although, as someone pointed out - it's not a word that you typically hear said out loud, so it's entirely likely that maybe she had pronounced it wrong.

Judith herself came forward to speak out about the incident, tweeting:


It was apparently confirmed by producers and other contestants that they were happy with the fact that Judith knew the asnwer - she was even asked to spell it out.

It wouldn't have mattered anyway - Judith would have still won the final if scores had finished level as she was the contestant with fewest passes.

She had only passed on one question compared to the two that Ian had passed on.

Congrats on winning, Judith!
