'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' Contestant Scoops Jackpot For The First Time In 14 Years

For the first time in a whopping 14 years, someone has won £1 million on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire!

In the upcoming series of the show, viewers will watch as one clever contestant manages to whizz through all 15 questions and bag the jackpot.

Details of the winner are being kept tightly under wraps, but it's the first time someone has successfully completed the game since 2006, when 76-year-old Ingram Wilcox went home with £1 million.

And host Jeremy Clarkson has described it as the best moment the show has ever had in all of its 22 years.

Speaking about the triumphant win, he said: "Well, I'm absolutely thrilled and delighted that we've found someone who seems to know just about everything.

"I can't wait for the viewers to see it and I want to watch it back too. 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.

"It felt like we whizzed through the 15 questions and all of a sudden, confetti was falling from the ceiling and I was saying 'You've just won one million pounds'.
