To mark 20 years since the iconic quiz show first aired, ITV is screening seven special episodes of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? with Jeremy Clarkson taking over from Chris Tarrant in the quizmaster’s seat.
Apparently the motormouth former Top Gear presenter is a huge quiz fan, though it remains to be seen whether his naturally sarcastic tone of voice will work on such familiar phrases as: ‘Is that your final answer?’
It’s the quiz itself, with its instantly recognisable theme and addictive format – slightly tweaked for this revival – that remains the star attraction. Although we’d love Jeremy to end the show with: ‘And on that bombshell…’ Continues daily.
