WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE WITH JEREMY CLARKSON 'SET TO BE RECOMMISSIONED' BY ITV

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is set to be recommissioned by ITV, with new episodes set to be recorded later this year, according to reports.



Host Jeremy Clarkson is to welcome a new cohort of brave contestants all hoping to get a chance to win a life-changing £1,000,000. The current series continues on Sunday nights at 8pm on ITV1.



A source told The Mirror: "ITV have been playing a waiting game to see how things look and how people have been reacting to new episodes going out this year of Millionaire with Clarkson...


"There has been no huge reaction and so a decision has been made to continue with him in the chair. It is a second chance for Clarkson but if he were to overstep the mark again it’s unlikely there will be a third chance.”



In a statement, ITV said: "There are more brand new episodes of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire that will be played on ITV later this year. As is typical with such shows, we make commissioning decisions on a series-by-series basis and as such we are yet to confirm further commissioning commitments beyond that.”"


Each contestant will put their knowledge to the test in front of the nation as they try to answer the 15 questions to win the million-pound prize helped along the way by four lifelines of 50:50, Phone a Friend, Ask the Audience and Ask the Host - expect some massive wins, devasting losses, and even Jeremy answering correctly!



The global hit game show returned to ITV in May 2018 to celebrate its 20th anniversary and the series crowned its first millionaire in 14 years in 2020. Donald Fear answered all 15 questions correctly with three lifelines still in tack, making him arguably the most successful contestant in the series’ history.


Who Wants To Be A Millionaire airs on ITV1 with previous episodes available on ITVX.
