The show, which was hosted by Chris Tarrant for 15 years, is this year celebrating its 20th anniversary (yes we’re very old), and is being rebooted for a special limited series. To celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary.
It was reported earlier this month that Jeremy Clarkson would be the new host, with a source telling The Sun: “The show was a huge hit last time around and the hope is that it’ll live up to that success the second time around.”
And now Jeremy has confirmed he’ll return to the show, saying: ‘I have always loved the show and am thrilled to be involved with its re-birth.
‘I’m a big fan of quiz shows and I’m looking forward to hosting this iconic TV show and hopefully making a few millionaires.’
This format of the show will be the same 15 questions and lifelines (ask the audience, phone a friend and 50/50), however viewers are reportedly set to see a number of twists and turns throughout – which all sounds very exciting.
