There are two more episodes – one tonight (September 10, 2020) and the last one is tomorrow (September 11, 2020) – both are on at 9pm.

ITV is yet to reveal which night the million pound jackpot will be won.

Who was the last jackpot winner?

It’s the first time the jackpot has been won for 14 years and the first winner for host Jeremy Clarkson who was thrilled to finally give away the big money prize.

“It felt like we whizzed through the questions,” Clarkson said.

“All of a sudden, confetti was falling from the ceiling and I was saying, ‘You’ve just won one million pounds’.”

“I wasn’t sure I’d ever get to utter those immortal words. It was a little emotional — but, boy, did it feel good.”

The last contestant to answer all 15 questions correctly was 76-year-old Ingram Wilcox from Somerset in 2006.

Ingram is a British quiz enthusiast and managed to scoop the jackpot despite using all his lifelines up at the £32k mark.

Can contestants still Ask the Audience?

Social distancing rules mean there will be no live audience in the studio, so contestants will no longer have the Ask the Audience lifeline.

Instead, two Phone A Friend lifelines will be given to contestants, alongside the usual 50:50 and Ask The Host.

It is not known if the new millionaire used all their lifelines.
