Piers Morgan is appearing on Boxing Day’s celebrity special. Considering Clarkson’s love for him, that’s going to be interesting!

I think they can be at least in the same room now and are on speaking terms. Apparently Jeremy even winds up Piers by showing him his 'broken' finger which slightly fell into his head.

Yes, people forget that the events of March 2015 was not Clarkson's first assault.

Looks like the most recent winner is on Mastermind Cymru this week.

Not quite right, it’s his brother.

Channel 9 in Australia are bringing back the original WWTBAM format. They've been airing the 'hotseat' format in the evening slot for years but it'll be nice to see the original format return. Think the gimmicks of hotseat distract from the original format.

Why is their set so cheap looking?

Well that kind of the point, it’s a different format based on the format and utilising the brand of other.

Interesting, that background is of a modern era Millionaire set, despite him sitting in the regular hot seat set. I wonder if they’re get a new one.

Guess that'll replace the Aussie Open which has been pushed back 3 weeks.
Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.

I think the Australian Millionaire set has always been pretty much a compact pack up/wheel out job for studio space purposes since the start of the original. The show has moved locations during Covid etc so easy to put together. This set has barely changed. Looks like the prime time return will just be the same set as the previous original and hotseat with different lighting similar to the current US/UK>

I wouldn't be surprised if it's still being filmed in Queensland after being moved temporarily there due to the Covid restrictions in Victoria hence the slightly different set.
