One person hoping to win the £100,000 prize was Steven Wong, 52, who Lee chatted to on the latest edition of the show.

In sad news, it was revealed that Steven had passed away earlier this year before his episode of the quiz show had been broadcast.

Steven was one of this show's most memorable contenders thanks to his tales of almost landing a part in a major movie as a child.

During a chat with Lee, he shared the story about his brush with Hollywood by confirming that he was the second choice for a role in the hit blockbuster, Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom.His tale had Lee gasping as he recounted his chances of being so close to becoming a film star.

Recalling how his parents had taken him for an acting audition as a child, Steven said: "I didn't realise this but apparently we got down to the final two and it was me and another kid.

"Don't forget this was only when I was about 10!"

His huge Indiana Jones franchise revelation left his fellow contestants gobsmacked.

In a sad turn, a message at the end of the programme confirmed that Steven had passed away as The 1% Club paid tribute to him.

It read: "In memory of Steven Wong. 1972-2024

The revelation that he had died left fans devastated as they rushed to share their condolences to the player online.

One stunned fan said: "Very sad to hear about Steven Wong. Thoughts are with his family."

Another simply penned: "RIP Steven Wong."

Hardest Quiz Show Questions

Would you know the answers to some of quizzing TV's hardest questions

  • Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - Earlier this year, fans were left outraged after what they described as the "worst" question in the show's history. Host Jeremy Clarkson asked: “From the 2000 awards ceremony onwards, the Best Actress Oscar has never been won by a woman whose surname begins with which one of these letters?” The multiple choice answers were between G, K, M and W. In the end, and with the £32,000 safe, player Glen had to make a guess and went for G. It turned out to be correct as Nicole Kidman, Frances McDormand and Kate Winslet are among the stars who have won the Best Actress gong since 2000. 
  • The 1% Club - Viewers of Lee Mack's popular ITV show were left dumbfounded by a question that also left the players perplexed. The query went as follows: "Edna's birthday is on the 6th of April and Jen's birthday falls on the 15th of October, therefore Amir's birthday must be the 'X' of January." It turns out the conundrum links the numbers with its position in the sentence, so 6th is the sixth word and 15th is the fifteenth word. Therefore, Amir’s birthday is January 24th, corresponding to the 24th word in the sentence.
  • The Chase - The ITV daytime favourite left fans scratching their heads when it threw up one of the most bizarre questions to ever grace the programme. One of the questions asked the player: "Someone with a nightshade intolerance should avoid eating what?" The options were - sweetcorn, potatoes, carrots - with Steve selecting sweetcorn but the correct answer was potatoes.
