TV quiz show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? is returning for a new series with Jeremy Clarkson in the hosting seat – and the programme’s producers are on the lookout for contestants.

The popular ITV game show was revived for a string of anniversary specials earlier this year with Clarkson taking over the role previously filled by Chris Tarrant.

Following that run, which saw more than six million viewers tune in to watch the revived format, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? will return to our screens next year – although a specific start date hasn’t been set yet.

A spokesman said: “Jeremy Clarkson is hosting another exciting series of the world’s greatest game show and we’re looking for contestants who can make it all the way to £1 million."

The deadline for applications is 11.59pm on Wednesday, 10 December 2018.

The auditioning and casting period is already underway and will continue until Friday, 14 December 2018.

Applicants must be 18 years of age or over.
