CONTESTANTS are wanted for the new series of Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

The hit ITV quiz show, now hosted by former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, is ‘searching for the country’s brightest brains’ who fancy their chances of bagging the £1million prize pot.

A spokesman from the programme said: “Applications for the next series are now open, and we would love for people to be in with a chance to win big.

“Those wanting the chance to sit opposite Jeremy in the world-famous hotseat should apply now.

“You could be just 15 questions away from becoming a millionaire.”

Applicants must be aged 18 or over, with entries closing on Thursday, October 24.

Auditions to feature on the programme then end on November 1.
