Hosted by Chris Tarrant, possibly the most well known quiz show in the world, it is no wonder Who Wants to be a Millionaire has been nominated and won so many BAFTAs. Chris Tarrant has made his fame from this show. The UK version of the show was the first one and it was the inspiration for the Irish version and the US version. In this show Chris Tarrant asks contestants 15 questions, with multiple choice answers, which gets harder as the show goes on. They have three life-lines, Phone a Friend, Ask the Audience and 50/50. Though America has formed a rip off version of this, this is the real McCoy. Though America has had about ten winners, the pound is worth more, so the questions are harder. 5 millionaire's have been made in this fantastic game show.
There is a money tree, which you will progress through the questions.The show is owned and licensed by british production company Celador. £1,000,000 £500,000 £250,000 £125,000 £64,000 £32,000 £16,000 £8000 £4000 £2000 £1000 £500 £300 £200 £100
