Stellify Media has confirmed that Who Wants To Be A Millionaire…? spin-off Fastest Finger First will be filmed at MediaCity’s Dock10.

Hosted by Anita Rani, the new ITV show, will offer contestants the chance to win a place on the main show.

It was created because a “phenomenal” amount of people apply to take part in Millionaire. In Fastest Finger First, contestants have to put their answers to a multiple-choice question in a specific order. The 2 players with the biggest score at the end, go head-to-head, with the winner fast-tracked to Who Wants To Be a Millionaire….?

“I’ve always loved Who Wants To Be A Millionaire…? and was thrilled to be invited to host this spin off,” said Anita Rani.

“I’m a huge fan of quiz shows, and there is no doubt that Jeremy [Clarkson] is a formidable host. I’m just relieved in Fastest Finger First, there isn’t a round for contestants to ask for my answers to the questions!”

The show was devised by Stellify’s joint MD’s, Matthew Worthy and Kieran Doherty and developed in association with Sony Pictures Television.

“The premise of Fastest Finger First might be simple, but in no way is it easy to do,” said Doherty.

“As with Millionaire, Fastest Finger First holds the same excitement and tension – knowing when to use your question’s safety net and when to risk it all to push on, creates really compelling viewing.”
