A Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? contestant is set to be crowned a millionaire in the final episode of the ITV show.
For the first time in 14 years, viewers will see the lucky contestant walk away with the eye-watering jackpot which has only been won six times throughout the quiz show’s duration.
Although the identity of the winner has not yet been revealed, it’s believed that it was a man who answered the 15 questions.
According to the show’s host, Jeremy Clarkson, the mysterious quiz king reached the massive jackpot in ‘record time’ after he whizzed through the general knowledge questions.
Not giving much away, the former Top Gear star described the new millionaire as ‘the best contestant ever’ after the clever quizzer stunned Jeremy and the production crew.
The episode, which was recorded in July, was filmed under social distancing guidelines which meant that there were only a select few individuals who got to witness the special moment.
While there was no audience present to cheer the lucky contestant on, viewers will be able to watch magic happen on Friday night.
The final episode of the current series of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire kicks off at 8.30pm on ITV – and it’s bound to be an unmissable one.
As fans look forward to witnessing the moment with their own eyes, host admitted that he was in awe of the jackpot winner during the special episode.
He told Daily Mirror: “I was just in awe of this contestant and think they are probably the best the show has ever had in its 22-year history. It was a joy to sit and watch it unfold.
In fact, Jeremy even got a little emotional, “I wasn’t sure I’d ever get to utter those immortal six words and I’m not embarrassed to say it was a little emotional but boy did it feel good.”
The last lucky winner to walk away with the jackpot was Ingram Wilcox, who nabbed the hefty cash prize back in 2006.
