Masked Singer presenter Joel Dommett asked the Clarkson’s Farm frontman, 62, shared which celebrities will be taking part in the iconic quiz show and confirmed comedian Eddie Izzard is part of the star-studded line-up.
‘Eddie Izzard obviously is very bright so he was fun,’ he said.
During her appearance on the Sky Arts programme Portrait Artist of the Year in 2020, Eddie requested that she be referred to by the pronouns ‘she/her’ after being asked for her preference.
‘This is the first programme I’ve asked if I can be she and her, a little transition period,’ she said at the time.
Following Jeremy’s faux-pas, the crowd corrected Jeremy and said ‘they.’

‘They… whatever he is. I knew there was a word. There was a pronoun I had forgotten. They were very good,’ he added to MailOnline and other outlets.
Jeremy also claimed that he had no ‘f*****g idea’ who half the celebrities were, and had to do extra research on them.
The upcoming series will see a first, as the popular Ask the Audience lifeline will actually backfire on a £1,000 question.
‘In this series, I think it’s the first time ever in Millionaire history that the audience got the simple £1,000 question wrong,’ Clarkson said.

Following her appearance on Portrait Artist of the Year, Eddie recently revealed that ‘in two days in America and Britain where I’m best known, all my pronouns were changed’.
‘Which is fantastic, a great honour. I’ve been promoted to she, I see it as a great honour,’ she continued.
But I prefer she/her, don’t mind he/him, and I’m going to be relaxed about it. It’s not the time for fighting each other on this.
‘The extreme right wing, I’m happy to fight them, because they get up in the morning with hatred, and they push hatred. All the problems in the world seem to start with the extreme right. Even plumbing.’

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? is available to stream on the ITV Hub.
