Who Wants To Be A Millionaire fans make the same comment about new series

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire viewers were all in agreement as the show returned for a new series.

Back with winners from new sister show Fastest Finger First, contestants faced host Jeremy Clarkson as they tried to win a life-changing £1m.

However, that wasn't the only change to the show. To viewers' delight the audience returned, meaning the addition of the 'Ask The Audience' lifeline. It had previously been removed due to social distancing regulations because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Noticing their return, one viewer Danny took to Twitter and said: "The audience!!", followed by a love heart emoji. Gary tweeted: "So good to see @MillionaireUK back with a full audience. #WWTBAM."

Reuben said: "Welcome back audience on #whowantstobeamillionaire." Al tweeted: "I really missed Ask The Audience getting it wrong."

Scott said: "Thank god the audience is back, it was so creepy and dead the past few series." Stewart added: "It's so much better with the audience isn't it."

Shaun said: "Welcome back to the audience." Kyle said: "People in the audience I repeat people in the audience!!!!!!!!"

Arman tweeted: "So glad to see the audience again!" And Steve said: "We got an audience back!"

And to the excitement of viewers, it wasn't too long before the audience's assistance was required. For £32,000 Jeremy asked contestant Helen: "In 2020, who became the first female artist to have a solo UK Number 1 album in five consecutive decades?"

The options were A) Celine Dion B) Cher C) Mariah Carey or D) Kylie Minogue. Helen immediately ruled out Celine Dion and Mariah Carey but was split between Cher and Kylie Minogue.

Using her lifeline, Helen asked the audience. They voted in a 70% majority for Kylie Minogue, which was the correct answer.
