Jeremy Clarkson 'to replace Chris Tarrant as host of new Who Wants To Be A Millionaire revival'... four years after the quiz show was axed
He made a return to screens last year following his axe from Top Gear, as the host of Amazing Prime series The Grand Tour.
And Jeremy Clarkson's sensational comeback is getting better and better, as he is now reportedly in talks to host a revival of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
A source told The Sun On Sunday the television presenter, 57, is set to start work on a reboot of the ITV game show - originally hosted by Chris Tarrant, 71 - following its axe in 2014 after 15 years on the air.
A source told the publication: 'Jeremy is a huge character and the bosses are convinced he is going to come in and really make the show his own.
'As well as interviewing contestants and giving answers, he'll be injecting plenty of humour.
'The show was a huge hit last time around and the hope is that it'll live up to that success the second time around.'
The rebooted series is reportedly being produced by Stellify Media, who also successfully revived Blind Date on Channel 5 with host Paul O'Grady.
A representative for Jeremy Clarkson has been contacted for comment by MailOnline.
Clarkson would take the place of Tarrant asking contestants questions, with each correct answer taking them a step closer to the £1 million jackpot.
The former Top Gear host has been back on top following the positive reception of The Grand Tour, after he was axed from the BBC series in a light of a 'fracas' with one of the series producers.
While fans may be excited by the prospect of the show's return, Tarrant said last year he doesn't believe there are the financial means to support the show anymore.
He told the Daily Star: 'The biggest problem is it was about making someone a millionaire. It's got to be that sort of money.
'You can't call it 'Who Wants To Win £50?' It wouldn't work. You couldn't even change it to £100,000, it wouldn't be the same.
'So it's a very expensive show to make. What's interesting is that now there is no programme that gives away more than about £5,000.'
Millionaire was a first for British TV due to its large prize when it began in 1998, and contestants had the opportunity to walk away with whatever they had already won if they struggled to answer a question.At its peak, Millionaire was a huge hit for ITV, drawing in audiences of over 19 million, and in total five people managed to scoop the top prize.
The first, and only, woman winner was Judith Keppel, who famously named Henry II as Eleanor Acquitane's husband in 2000 to receive the massive cheque in front of 14 million viewers.
Not long after was David Edwards and Robert Brydges, both in 2001, while Pat Gibson phenomenally made it to the final question with two of his lifelines remaining, and Ingram Wilcox became the show's last Millionaire in 2006.
Millionaire also made nationwide news in 2001, when Major Charles Ingram attempted to win the jackpot by cheating with the help of contestant Tecwen Whittock.
With Charles in the hot seat, Tecwen would cough to indicate the correct answer, and while this did lead the Major to win the jackpot, the pair were caught by producers.
After a lengthy court case, Charles, his wife Diana and Tecwen were all charged with fraud in 2003, receiving various suspended prison sentences.
In later years, Millionaire focused more on celebrity charity specials, with four final star-studded episodes commemorating the show's end in 2014.
Other legends who famously braced the hot-seat included Simon Cowell, Sir Paul McCartney and the late George Michael.
Millionaire was also the inspiration for the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, in which a young man appears on the Indian version of the show, and after being accused of cheating, recounts his past to show how he is able to answer every question.
