He's a failure! (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

dud

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'he's' is the first definition.

'a failure' is the second definition.

(dud is a kind of failure)

(Other definitions for dud that I've seen before include "Palindromic failure", "Just a palindromic flop", "Failing in its function", "Ineffectual person", "A palindromic washout", "Palindromic flop", "Non-functioning thing", "Useless, doesn't work - a palindrome", "Failed, worthless thing" and "Failing to work or meet standard (colloq.)".)
