Do you have what it takes to be a millionaire? This Twitter thread puts you to the test

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire quiz

A Twitter thread of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire questions has been doing the rounds online, and people have been seeing if they have what it takes to come out on top.

Inspired by the ITV drama quiz, one tweeter has created a thread of winning Who Wants To Be A Millionaire questions. And it’s made us wonder could we have bagged the top prize?

Of course, we’ve all been wondering the same thing since the movie Slumdog Millionaire shot to fame back in 2008. Watching Jamal answer every question correctly gave us a sliver of hope that if it came down to it, we’d be able to do the same thing. Wishful thinking, eh?

Of course, when you’re playing from the comfort of your own living room (with help from Google, Siri and what have you), it’s a lot easier to bluff your way through.

Using his time in quarantine to compile a thread of winning Who Wants To Be A Millionaire questions, Ted Littledale took to Twitter writing:

“I’ve recreated in Tweet from the 15 questions that Charles Ingram had to answer (minus the coughing). Click below to see if you could have answered them all correctly to win the £1,000,000.”

He’s since come out with a second edition, compiling questions answered by the first-ever one million pound winner Judith Keppel.

Proving to be quite popular, Ted noted that “people really liked” the quiz and so he’s committed to releasing one a week for the duration of lockdown.

“It seems like people really liked the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire quiz, 55k of you took part and 28k made it all the way through to the end (eventually).

I’m therefore going to put these out once a week during the lockdown, starting this morning.”

People have been loving the challenge, commending Ted for his great work and thanking him for the very-welcome source of entertainment.

Give it a go and see how you get on. Nothing to lose, everything to gain… metaphorically speaking – there is no million-pound prize to this version sadly, just the winning feeling of a job well done.
