In 2020, the series crowned its first millionaire in 14 years.

Donald Fear answered all 15 questions correctly with three lifelines still intact, making him arguably the most successful contestant in the series’ history.

Meanwhile the recent Celebrity specials featured Piers Morgan and Jordan Banjo trying to answer 15 questions and become the first ever celebrity to win the £1,000,000 prize for charity.

In the second celebrity special Prue Leith, Kym Marsh and Ronni Ancona took a seat in the famous chair and put their knowledge to the test in front of the nation.
