ITV1 is to screen the episode of Who Wants to be a Millionaire in which Ingrid Tarrant appears as a contestant after winning fastest finger first.
Ingrid, dressed in Gucci, makes her way to the 'hot seat' and there follows a strained exchange between the ex couple.
Ingrid we know makes her way to 50,000 pounds without using any lifelines but at the time of this article, we do not know if she progresses further.
A spokesperson said 'Chris was aware that Ingrid had applied to be a contestant but he is a consummate professional who as usual, took it in his stride'.
This however conflicts with what a number of the audience saw who said he (Tarrant) looked decidedly uncomfortable with the whole incident and was clearly effected by being less annoying than normal.
Ingrid said prior to the show said of her reason for appearing was that 'she had taken a fortune off him in the divorce and this was the icing on the cake'.
Chris was not available for comment preferring to miss the usual after show party and instead go fishing.
