The popular TV show, Who wants to be a millionaire? is set to return for a Christmas special with celebrities trying to answer 15 questions to win one million pound for charity.
Jeremy Clarkson will host the episode on boxing day at 9:30pm, alongside Piers Morgan and Jordan Banjo who are set to be the contestants, with Prue Leith, Kym Marsh and Ronni Ancona appearing the following day at 9:15pm.
“Covid restrictions meant there was no studio audience, and therefore no Ask the Audience option. Instead, I could have two Phone-a-Friends, the usual 50/50 and a choice of Ask the Host, which would obviously be the very last thing I’d want to do given that Clarkson would rather garotte himself than assist me.
Host Clarkson spoke his thoughts on the line up, saying: ” We have a great line-up of celebrities for these two special episodes, Even I’d heard of most of them”.
