Slightly strange given that the only contestant of any memorable note to win the Million is Judith Keppel. Unless they do an ep of Charles Ingram’s exploits.

Well, Pat Gibson did pretty well after Millionaire...

I don't think it'll be dedicated to each winner. I imagine it'll be themed for different moments in the show's history.

Six episodes is a lot and I suspect it won't rate that well.

Don’t think it’s stripped either unless I’ve misread - looks like it’s weekly in the Sunday 8pm slot.

And for those interested it looks like it'll be an annoying show interrupted by talking heads rather than a straight repeat.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

It says it’ll feature ‘hilarious’ highlights from the celebrity editions as well as the millionaires

I can’t see Chris being a talking head in it though, he seems to have tried distancing himself from the show somewhat since leaving apart from a few comments on Ingram when the Quiz drama cans out

6 episodes of this seems an awful lot.

Wonder if it’s a lockdown commission, from back when they weren’t sure what they’d be able to make for the Autumn, that is now being burned off.

The press briefing I linked earlier shows this: Week 48 2020 : Sat 21 Nov - Fri 27 Nov

Implying stripped? Unless I'm missing something or have entirely misrepresented what this line means. Very Happy

Also, I don't understand the rather pointless embargo warning at the top of the message when... they've put it in a public place, ie the internet, that anyone can see.

It's how TV info is published - the programme airs in Week 48. The other episodes would be listed if they did - and as it is I'm a Celeb season there simply aren't the slots in primetime for it to air.

Agree the embargo is ridiculous for a publicly available site.

Robert Brydges declined to take part in the series supposedly so he won't be a talking head for Episode 3...
