‘I’ve never even met him’ – Chris Tarrant left baffled by Tyson Fury claiming they had a heated argument in Netflix series At Home With The Furys

Chris Tarrant has hit back at Tyson Fury’s bizarre claim that they once had a ‘big row’ at Gleneagles in Scotland.

The UK TV personality, best known for presenting ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ for 16 years, was surprised to be name-checked by the WBC heavyweight world champion in his new Netflix series.

On the third episode of ‘At Home With The Furys’, Tyson was planning a holiday with his wife Paris.

During their conversation, he said: “What’s the f***ing big hotel called in Scotland? Gleneagles.

“I had a big row with Chris Tarrant the last time I was there.”

No doubt the 76-year-old was baffled to wake up one morning and see his name in the headlines for a supposed argument with boxing’s heavyweight world champion.

Tarrant has now told the Mail in response: “It is complete nonsense! I’ve never even met him.

“My wife and I got into a crowded lift with Tyson in it. We didn’t even speak and I got out at the next floor.

“There was no row, not a word was exchanged and we never saw him again. So I’ve still never met him.

“He is one of the greatest boxers I’ve ever seen, why on earth would I have a row with him? This is rubbish.”

Fury is yet to offer an explanation.
