Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? will be back for a brand new series in 2019.

Following the success of the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? anniversary specials earlier this year, ITV announced the series will return in 2019.

Once again airing as a stripped event, ten new episodes have been ordered - three more than the original revival.

They will play out on ITV from New Year's Day, Tuesday January 1, 2019 and will see the return of host, Jeremy Clarkson.

The global hit game show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, returned in May 2018 and launched with 6.1 million viewers and a 31% share. The seven episode special, to celebrate the 20th anniversary, was stripped across one week and went on to win the slot each night it was broadcast.

The show will offer members of the public the chance to win £1,000,000. Each contestant will have the opportunity to answer 15 questions on their way to winning the life changing prize, helped along the way by familiar lifelines of Ask The Audience; Phone a Friend and 50:50.

New lifeline; Ask The Host, will also be back for 2019 after its first introduction this year.

The show will air nightly at 9PM on ITV throughout the week from Tuesday, January 1.

Jeremy Clarkson 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”.

Matthew Worthy, joint Managing Director of Stellify Media said, “Ask The Host is back! And a quick tip for future contestants: don’t use it on questions about fine art, haute cuisine or the scouting association.”

The application process to apply to be a contestant on the show is now open. You can apply via this link itv.com/beontv.
