📅 New Series in March 2019
In 2018, ITV confirmed that Millionaire would return for a new series consisting of 6 episodes from 1 to 6 January 2019 with Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame replacing Tarrant as host. Clarkson also confirmed in January that the show would return for a new series in March 2019.
Chris Tarrant, who presented the programme from 1998 to 2014, added that motormouth Jeremy Clarkson could never create the same “buzz” that he had when he was the face of the globally-recognised show. In an interview with the Daily Star, 72-year-old Chris said of missing the first run of shows: “I was in France, fishing. And no, not to get away from it, that’s just where I happened to be.”
Asked whether he feels bitter about being overlooked by producers for the current series, he added: “I genuinely couldn’t care less. I wouldn’t have wanted to do it again.”
