FOOTBALL legend Harry Redknapp crashed out of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? after four minutes – without winning a penny.
The former West Ham and Spurs manager answered three questions correctly, but fell short on a £500 film-related one.

It meant Harry, 74, failed to win any cash for his good cause — so he stumped up the money from his own pocket.
Convinced Bruce Willis starred as John Rambo – famously played by Sylvester Stallone – Harry declared: “That’s my final answer.”
Host Jeremy gulped as he revealed: “That’s the wrong answer.
“I’m struggling here to find the right words.
“The truth of the matter is – and I’ve never said to this any contestant who’s ever been on in four years of hosting this show – you’re leaving with nothing at all.”
He pledged to donate £5,000 to The Dream Factory charity.
The toe-curling episode was repeated tonight on ITV.
A TV insider at the time said: “He was clearly shocked and embarrassed at getting the boot so early in the competition — he’d barely been in the hotseat a few minutes.

“But he was crestfallen mainly because he’d failed to raise any funds and didn’t hesitate to put his hand in his pocket.
“It was certainly a contrast to when he was on another big ITV show, I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here!, which he won.”
It is the first time since Jeremy Clarkson took over as host of the ITV quiz show that a celebrity has failed to win any money for a good cause.
Answering the £1,000 question is the only way to ensure taking home any money.
