Jeremy Clarkson Is Apparently Going To Host 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire'

A Sunday newspaper is reporting that Jeremy Clarkson is lined-up to be the new host of a new version of the big-money game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire

We’re not quite sure to make of this one, but claims are being made that Jeremy Clarkson is to front a reboot of the old, hit TV quiz challenge Who Wants to be a Millionaire?.

The show, commonly just called Millionaire, is apparently due for a second coming in the hands of the people who recently brought Blind Date back to British screens. Clarkson is, according to Lad Bible, a ‘done deal’ for the presenter’s job.

This guy? Presenting a game show? We're not convinced...

The Sun on Sunday has written that ‘the orangutan,’ as his Grand Tour co-hosts know him, will take the presenter’s chair to add his own brand of charisma and banter to the quizzing.

An anonymous source apparently told the paper:

“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.”

We’ll believe it if and when we see it, and not a moment sooner…
