Who Wants to Be A Millionaire ends UK run, but can you get to the £1m question?
After 15 years and five millionaires, gameshow that spawned an Oscar-winning film comes to an end
It has gone on for what seems like a million years, but tonight the famous Chris Tarrant game show will finally draw to a close.
Since its first broadcast in 1999, Who Wants to Be A Millionaire has spawned 83 foreign language versions, an Oscar-winning film and countless unused board games.
But despite its 15-year run, only five contestants have ever won the million pound prize.
Some will remember there was a sixth millionaire, but his money was revoked after he was found to have cheated in a scandal that overshadowed the show in 2001.
The five contestants to have honestly made a million on the show include Judith Keppel in 2000, David Edwards in 2001, Robert Brydges in 2001, Pat Gibson in April 2004 and Ingram Wilcox in 2006.
Keppel was crowned the first winner of the show on 20 November 2000, and remains the only woman to have ever won Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in the UK.
Could you make it to one million pounds? See if you can answer Judith Keppel’s million-winning questions below:
