As they battle it out to take home the eye-watering cash prize, the contestant can ask for help on difficult questions in addition to asking the host, taking 50/50 or phoning a friend.

In a recent interview Jeremy teased what fans could expect from the latest series.

The TV presenter – who has been hosting the ITV show since its reboot in 2018 – joked he loves the job for the “money.”

He explained to host Joel Dommett: “It’s not that difficult sitting there saying to someone, ‘What’s the capital of Ecuador?’

“I really genuinely enjoy it and I like being in Manchester. It’s like a holiday really going up there for a week where it’s recorded.

“So I really love doing it, and it’s lovely to see people when they win a lot of money and it’s just as lovely to see people when they don’t.”

When the former Top Gear host was asked if there were any stand-out moments from this latest series he recalled the “biggest drop” in TV history.

He recalled: “I think we’ve had our biggest ever drop. Somebody went up to £125,000 without a safety net and – can I say this? – f***ed it up.”

A new feature which has been added to the ITV programme is and ‘ask the host’ option which puts the Clarkson’s Farm star on the stop to answer the difficult question which he confessed has taken “10 years off his life.”

He admitted: “I have to sit there and at some point, they are going to ask me and that really is unnerving then because you can be 99.9 percent sure that you know the answer.

“The doubt that lives in you head, and it takes 10 years off my life every time when they ask the host, I'm like, ‘Oh Christ, please don’t’.”
