Civilians Play for £1,000,000 on ITV’s “Millionaire: The People Play” Starting May 7th
Most of the year, whenever Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? returns to ITV, celebrities sit in the Hot Seat. However, starting tonight, civilians are back facing Chris Tarrant and attempt to win £1,000,000 for themselves. For three special shows beginning tonight, May 7th, ITV is bringing back Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?: The People Play at 9:00PM UK (4:00PM ET).
People from all across the United Kingdom will compete to be the first million pound winner since September 2006. Contestants will get four Lifelines along the way, but can they hold their nerve against the big bad clock and take home a giant payday? Last year’s People Play editions were extremely memorable. If you watched it, it’s hard to forget Dawn Harkins’s run to £75,000. We’ll see if anyone can beat that tonight at 9:00PM UK (4:00PM ET) on ITV.
People in the Hot Seat aren’t the only ones able to play, though. You, watching from home, can compete and see how you’d fare against the stack of questions. Viewers can play along live on their tablet or smartphone as people in the studio try their luck. This is only a free-to-play play-along app. Click here to download and get involved. Here’s a trailer for the show. Excited for the special editions? I know I am.
