Following the success of the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? anniversary specials, ITV have today confirmed that the series will return in 2019.
Once again the series will air as a stripped event across 10 nights in early 2019 and will see the return of host, Jeremy Clarkson.
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? returned in May 2018 and launched with 6.1 million viewers and a 31% share. The seven episode special, to celebrate the 20th anniversary, was stripped across one week and went on to win the slot each night it was broadcast.
The show will offer members of the public the chance to win £1,000,000. Each contestant will have the opportunity to answer 15 questions on their way to winning the life changing prize, helped along the way by familiar lifelines of Ask The Audience; Phone a Friend; 50:50 and the return of new lifeline; Ask The Host.
Speaking about its return, Jeremy Clarkson said “I absolutely loved hosting the anniversary shows and cannot wait to spend a few precious hours away from James May and Richard Hammond, making the new ones”.
