'Fastest Finger First' is reportedly a new ITV gameshow based on the round of the same name featured in Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, according to reports from The Sun.

The game sees a set of contestants race to put answers to a multiple choice question into the correct order. The winner is the contestant who gets the order correct in the fastest time.

ITV rebooted Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? in 2018 to celebrate the show's 20th anniversary. The revived series was hosted by former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson. Clarkson is not thought to be hosing Fastest Finger First - though the actual host is to be confirmed.

A source told The Sun: "This is a reflection of just how much of a triumph the reboot has been, because even the original Millionaire didn’t spawn a spin-off show...

"And that was a phenomenon which was on our screens for a staggering 16 years under its former host, Chris Tarrant, before it was eventually axed in 2014. So this shows how much ITV believe the contest has captured the imagination of a whole new generation of viewers."

Production on the series is reported to begin later this year. It's not yet clear where or when the show will air, though we expect it to be a primetime hour-long show.
