Ex-Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson is to host a re-boot of the quiz show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? on UK TV network ITV.

He replaces previous host Chris Tarrant.

Clarkson was fired from BBC's Top Gear programme in 2015, and now hosts The Grand Tour for Amazon TV.

"I have always loved the show and am thrilled to be involved with its rebirth," Clarkson said of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

"I'm a big fan of quiz shows, and I'm looking forward to hosting this iconic TV show and hopefully making a few millionaires."

Clarkson will host seven episodes of the show, being filmed to mark its 20th anniversary.
