Jeremy Clarkson to revamp Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

Share article:

Jeremy Clarkson has signed up to present "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?".

The "Grand Tour" presenter is set to work on a revamped version of the game show - which was originally presented by Chris Tarrant - for production company Stellify Media, who were behind Paul O'Grady's revival of "Blind Date".

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Jeremy is a huge character and the bosses are convinced he is going to come in and really make the show his own.

"As well as interviewing contestants and giving answers, he'll be injecting plenty of humour.

"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."

Work on the programme is expected to begin later this year.

The popular quiz show - which saw contestants answer questions to win increasingly large sums of money - first aired in 1998 and ended in 2013 after Chris, 57, announced he was stepping down as host.

Meanwhile, Jeremy's "Grand Tour" co-host James May - who he previously also worked with on "Top Gear" - recently revealed the motoring presenters aren't friends outside of the show.

James - who, along with Jeremy, works alongside Richard Hammond - admitted: "Outside of work, we don't meet up. It's very rare. I've spent so much time with them by the time we get to the end of work. I have no real desire spend any more with them! I have other friends and a woman waiting at home who loves me. And that's preferable!"
