ITV is welcoming back When Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? for a new series.

The one and only million-pound quiz is back with show host Jeremy Clarkson and some new safety measures due to the current climate.

There’s no audience and as such no Ask The Audience lifeline will be available.

This series will also see one of six contestants go all the way and win £1,000,000.

When does Who Wants To Be A Millionaire start?

The new series returns to television for season 35 on Monday, September 7.

It will air at 9pm on ITV and a brand new episode is scheduled for every weeknight this week until Friday, September 11.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire show changes

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic this series was filmed with new socially distanced restrictions.

Viewers will notice there’s no audience watching in the studio which means there’s also no Ask The Audience lifeline.

Instead, contestants will have two Phone A Friend options alongside the usual 50: 50 and Ask The Host lifeline.

Presenter Jeremy Clarkson said: “I’d have had a coronary if they’d suggested that we let contestants Ask The Host twice.

“It’s great to Ask The Audience and it’s nice to have four different lifelines but when you don’t have an audience there really is nothing you can do about it.

“That’s what we had to do because of Covid-19 and this is just where we are.”

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire winner

This series will also see one lucky person win the £1,000,000 jackpot.

It will be the first person to win during Clarkson’s time on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and the first person to take the top prize on the show since 2006.

Jeremy said: “Well, I’m absolutely thrilled and delighted that we’ve found someone who seems to know just about everything.

“I can’t wait for the viewers to see it and I want to watch it back too.

“I was just in awe of this contestant and think they are probably the best the show has ever had in its 22-year history.

“It was a joy to sit and watch it unfold.”
