Viewers were equally puzzled. One wrote on X, formerly Twitter: "This was probably the hardest question I have ever seen." A second echoed: "Definitely one of the hardest 1% questions there's been for a while... didn't get anywhere near it (got the rest using my paass)."

A third commented: "Just finished watching slightly behind live broadcast, and there’s no way I would have got this. Hardest question I’ve seen in a long time. Congrats to the three who won £3,333, particularly Charlotte for getting so far without buying a pass."

"That 1% question was a toughie. Never would have got that in 30s. Or possibly ever!"
