Episode 4: Celebrity Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Celebrity Special

Summary

Singer and presenter Charlotte Church, Pointless co-host Richard Osman and footballer-turned-pundit John Barnes take their turns at answering the 15 questions that could bag them £1million for their chosen charities. As always, if they get stuck, they have four lifelines to fall back on - Ask the Audience, 50/50, Phone a Friend and Ask the Host. Jeremy Clarkson asks the questions.

Review

As a little taster for ITV’s excellent three-part drama Quiz, about the Major Ingram WWTBAM 2001 coughing scandal, here’s a celebrity version of the quiz in question.

Of course, there’s no tell-tale throat clearing here, that was all a long time ago, and the host has changed since those heady early days. Chris Tarrant (played by Michael Sheen in the drama) has gone, and Jeremy Clarkson is behind the lectern. There are also a number of refinements to the old format, including an “ask the host” lifeline, something the host himself rightly insists is of limited use.

Clarkson introduces three game celebrities – Charlotte Church, Richard Osman and John Barnes – who roll up to put their general knowledge to the test for the benefit of their various favourite charities. 

Quiz is nightly from tomorrow until Wednesday.
