It was reported yesterday that after one final season, ITV’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire the show would no longer be presented by Jeremy Clarkson. But, ITV has dismissed this in a statement.
An ITV spokesperson said: “As we have said for several weeks, ITV is contractually committed to a further series of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? (which has now been recorded).
“There are no further commissioning commitments beyond that currently as is typical with such shows where we make commissioning decisions on a series-by-series basis.
“Therefore for the avoidance of doubt neither Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? nor Jeremy Clarkson have been cancelled.”
Clarkson also confirmed this in a tweet which read: “So many kind messages about today’s reports. But relax… I have not been sacked as host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.”
Clarkson’s Amazon Prime Video series Clarkson’s Farm has been received positively by fans of the show for highlighting issues in farming.
The Grand Tour presenter’s farming show which is filmed in the Cotswolds on his 1,000-acre farm Diddly Squat has gained over 4.3million viewers on TV sets making it the most-watched original show since Barb began collecting data on streaming services.
