You Can Now Apply To Be On Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
Last night, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?'s 'best player ever' scooped the big jackpot in just 20 minutes.
Using just one of his lifelines and barely hesitating, Donald Fear - the first jackpot winner in 14 years - made it look easy.
Consequently, there are no doubt people up and down the country who now fancy their chances of smashing all 15 questions and pocketing a million quid; a bit like when the Olympics is on and suddenly everyone starts swimming and cycling.

However, unlike the Olympics, you can actually have a shot at Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?; whether you can go as far as Donald is a different question altogether.
ITV is now accepting applicants for the next series, with entries closing on 2 November. To be eligible, you must be 18 or over and have the right to reside in the UK. You can apply here.
This is just the first step of many though, if you want to reach Donald's lofty heights.
If you make it as far as the TV studio, you then have to win the fastest finger first round, in which contestants must put four answers in the correct order as quickly as possible. The contestant who orders the answers accurately in the quickest time then gets to take a seat opposite host Jeremy Clarkson.

Then, there's just the small matter of answering 15 increasingly difficult and pressurised questions correctly, and voila, the million is yours.
At this point, if you're as much of a top potato as Donald, you'll give the majority of it away.

Speaking to The Mirror, the 57-year-old history and politics teacher said: "I am a bit of a democratic socialist so to speak, and just as my brother did with his win [his bro won a half a mil on the show too], this money will be splurged across the family.
"I intend to give at least 70 percent of the money away and leave just enough for me so I can have a comfortable retirement say. To be honest if I had a million pounds, I wouldn't have a clue how to spend it. I could buy an Aston Martin for instance, but I could get into the thing, but I could never get out of it. I'm fat!
"The only other thing you could possibly spend it on would be moving house but I am very happy with our house. It is in a lovely area and we have been there 27 years and have lovely neighbours, so why move? So I would rather keep the money and give it away to people I love. A motor-home is the only purchase on the horizon."
