Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? reboot: All you need to know

But just what is Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

Although an exact date and time for the iconic show's return has not yet been confirmed, it's believed that the reboot will occur sometime this spring. The UK version will run seven one-hour episodes each week.

Originally presented by Chris Tarrant, the show will air every night for a week in late spring. Will it be different to the original format?

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? is a TV quiz show that offers a top prize of £1 million ($1.4 million) for successfully answering multiple-choice questions that increase in difficulty as the show progresses.

"I can't wait." Clarkson was one of the biggest stars on ITV's rival network the BBC, until 2015, when he was axed as a host of flagship motoring show Top Gear after a violent altercation with a producer.

But one thing is certain - Jeremy Clarkson will be hosting the United Kingdom version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? when it returns to the airwaves this spring.

At one point, however, it was one of the most-watched shows in Britain, with 19 million people tuning in each week to watch contestants try to win £1 million in ever-increasing steps with harder questions each time, able to resort to lifelines of asking the audience, phoning a friend and taking a 50:50 option.

He said: "I'm a big fan of quiz shows and I'm looking forward to hosting this iconic TV show and hopefully making a few millionaires".
