Jimmy Carr gives £18,000 to Glasgow game show contestant over ‘I just literally told you’ mistake
The comedian presented the money to Sainsbury’s worker Eddy, from Glasgow, on stage during one of his comedy shows after taking part in Carr’s quiz show I Literally Just Told You.
During the show, Eddy was asked to recall how old pop star Ariana Grande was.
Participants are expected to receive answers to questions throughout the show and must rely on their memory to find the right answer at the right time.
However, Grande’s age, which is 28, was never mentioned during I Literally Just Told You.

In order to rectify the error, Channel 4 invited Eddy to one of Carr’s concerts at the O2, where he was invited on stage by the comedian.
Carr told her, “I have something to tell you. I have something to confess. You lost money on a matter – it was Ariana Grande’s age.
“We talked about his age, but we never gave you a specific age.
“So we messed up and when you get it wrong in life you have to own up to your mistakes. It’s a check for £18,000.”
Eddy was in disbelief and shouted “Oh my God” as he received Carr’s check.
“Eddy, I have a question for you… You just won £18,000, but how do you know that?” Carr continued.
“Because Jimmy, you literally just told me,” Eddy replied.
The next episode of I Literally Just Told You will air at 10pm on Wednesday January 12 on Channel 4.
