Four years after Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was canceled, the quiz show will be back. However, instead of former host Chris Tarrant, the show will now feature the one and only Jeremy Clarkson as the host. Bet you did see that coming.
So why Jeremy? Doesn’t have his hands full with The Grand Tour? A source told The Sun On Sunday:

“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.”
Former host Tarrant suspects Millionaire was canceled because there weren’t the financial means to support the show anymore.
“…it’s a very expensive show to make. What’s interesting is that now there is no programme that gives away more than about £5,000.”
So…Jeremy as the new host of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire…thoughts?
