A Who Wants To Be A Millionaire contestant was left stunned by the question worth £64,000.

Spice Girls fans were no doubt in despair and screaming at the TV as the game show guest failed to know the answer to the question about the famous girl band.

Contestant Paul Curievici was having an easy time on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire until he got to the 11th question.

The choice of Spice Girls songs were 'Viva Forever', '2 Become 1', 'Too Much' and 'Say You’ll Be There'.

Looking at the question, Paul said: "It would be an understatement to say that this is not my specialist subject", before asking the audience for their opinion.

The audience voted for '2 become 1', but a still unsure Paul chose to use his 50:50 lifeline.

The two answers were then narrowed down to '2 become 1' and 'Say You'll Be There.'

"I think I faintly remember that one of these two songs was their last song. Viva Forever sounds like a farewell song," Paul told Jeremy.

"But Say You’ll Be There… I can’t remember if that was an important song either."

Still unsure, Paul decided to use his Phone A Friend lifeline, but as luck would have it his friend didn't know the answer either.
