Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? is returning this Christmas for a celebrity special filmed at dock10 studios at MediaCityUK.

Piers Morgan and Jordan Banjo will join host Jeremy Clarkson for a special Boxing Day edition, with Prue Leith, Kym Marsh and Ronni Ancona appearing the following day.

Celebrities will try to answer 15 questions with the help of four lifelines to win a million pounds for their charities.

Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Good Morning Britain presenter Morgan said: “So today I found myself sitting in the green room of the WWTBAM studios in Salford wondering what the hell I was doing there, as mounting panic stirred in my bowels.

"Covid restrictions meant there was no studio audience, and therefore no Ask the Audience option. Instead, I could have two Phone-a-Friends, the usual 50/50 and a choice of Ask the Host, which would obviously be the very last thing I’d want to do given that Clarkson would rather garotte himself than assist me.”

Other programmes filmed at dock10 include Happy Valley, The Voice, Blue Peter and Match of the Da.
