Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? will add a new twist to the revival, with new presenter Jeremy Clarkson able to help!
The ITV show will bring back the usual lifelines, ‘Ask The Audience’, ’50:50′ and ‘Phone a Friend’ plus new twist.
‘Ask The Host’ will allow the contestant to ask host Jeremy Clarkson if he can provide or help with an answer they’re stuck on.
“If the contestant chooses that lifeline, they get to ask me if I know the answer,” Jeremy explained.
“God help them. Anyone who doesn’t win £1,000,000 is bound, at some point, to ask me if I know the answer.
“And if it’s 1970s prog rock music, I probably will. If it’s anything other than that, I probably won’t.”
But, that’s not the only change as contestants will also have more control over their winnings thanks to the ‘Second Safety Net’.
Previously, when you passed £1,000 and £32,000 milestones, you’d be guaranteed that cash. However, now, once you cross the £1,000 mark, you will be able to choose which amount acts as the second milestone.
“They can choose where it goes. So they choose how much they are going to lose at any given moment, which is a very clever idea,” Jeremy commented.
“That requires balls of steel.”
Millionaire is back for it’s 20th anniversary on Saturday 5th May at 9.15pm, then nightly at 9.00pm.
