• C: Dido - 42% • D: Sophie Ellis-Bextor - 41%
Jim hasn't a clue, so asks the audience. There is just a 1% difference between C and D, so Jim decides to use his 50:50. This eliminates C, the audience's most popular option. The other 41% are wrong, however, losing Jim £3,000. The correct answer was Holly Valance.
