Jeremy Clarkson will ask the £1 million question when Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? returns to television this week.

It will be the first time viewers have seen the show’s biggest question since 2006 and the first time Clarkson has seen a contestant get to the final round since he took over hosting the show from Chris Tarrant in 2018.

Clarkson poses the big question to an English teacher from Birmingham, who makes it to the final round of the show despite struggling to answer the £2,000 question and using a lifeline to proceed.

Clarkson said: “Well, I can hardly believe it. I didn’t actually believe I’d say it but I’m going to…”.

There have been five £1 million winners since Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? started on UK television in 1998.

Afterwards, Clarkson said: “What a player, what a fabulous player” and called the game play “extraordinary”.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? returns at 9pm on ITV and continues all week.
