Chris Tarrent is leaving Who Wants to be a Millionaire and the show is ending. It’s been perhaps the most popular game show ever, and I enjoyed it immensely. My wife and I even sat in live at one of the shows a couple of years back. It’s a shame to see it go but all things must pass.
Who Wants To Be a Millionaire is set to come to an end after 15 years on our television screens, following presenter, Chris Tarrant’s decision to leave the show.
Speaking about why he feels it is time to move on, Chris said: “It’s been a huge part of my life for fifteen years and I’ve loved every minute of it, but it is time for me to move on from Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
“It’s been the most remarkable journey and I consider myself very fortunate to have been associated with Millionaire from its inception.
“I am privileged to have been a part of it, but do now feel that it is time for me to call it a day.
“I’ve worked ridiculously hard these last few years and, to quote myself, ‘it’s time to take a break’.”
Goodbye to Who Wants to be a Millionaire and Chris Tarrent, though I do believe he’ll be back before too long. He deserves a break after all these years after all. Stay tuned on ITV for their upcoming UK Millionaire show!
