Jeremy Paxman apparently said 'David Bowie' wrong - and fans don't like it

Viewers loved the David Bowie round on University Challenge, but they weren’t as impressed with host Jeremy Paxman’s pronunciation of the late star’s name.

The contestants, from Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Birmingham, had to listen to some of the chart-topper’s music and name the album it came from.

At home, fans were loving it.

However, the fact that some of the contestants didn’t know the answers and sat there umming and ahhing was met with a few sneers.

But that paled in comparison to the way Jeremy said Bowie’s name.

Better brush up on that one for next time Jeremy!
