Jeremy Clarkson can’t wait to get away from his Grand Tour co-stars as he confirms Who Wants To Be A Millionaire return

Jeremy Clarkson is bringing back Who Wants To Be A Millionaire for a new series.

The host will be in the hot seat again after fronting episodes for the game show’s anniversary.

Contestants have to answer 15 general knowledge questions, with the help of three lifelines, to try and win £1million.

Clarkson joked that he would be using the series to get away from his The Grand Tour co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond.

He said: ‘I absolutely loved hosting the anniversary shows and cannot wait to spend a few precious hours away from James May and Richard Hammond, making the new ones.’

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire will run for 10 episodes in 2019.

The revamped version of the game show earlier this year offered contestants an extra lifeline where they could ask Clarkson for help.

However it hasn’t always proved helpful, as a mistake made by the presenter in one episode cost a contestant £15,000.

Hammond previously said that Jeremy was ‘annoyingly good’ as host.

He added: ‘He likes it. He gets to sit down and he has the name of the show written down in front of him so he can’t forget it.

‘And it’s dry as well, so it is nice for a man of his age.’

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire first aired in 1998, ending in 2013 when original host Chris Tarrant stepped down from presenting duties after 15 years.
