Quiz on ITV: Fans distracted as they spot return of WWTBAM feature ‘Been waiting!’

Charles Ingram (played by Matthew Macfadyen) was back in the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire hotseat tonight in the penultimate episode of Quiz. Put under the microscope by Chris Tarrant (Michael Sheen) and the rest of the ITV show crew, Charles defied the odds to pocket the jackpot sum.


However, questions were soon raised when one of the show’s producers noticed a cough emerge from the audience.

Upon reflection and review of the recording, show bosses Paul Smith (Mark Bonnar) and David Briggs (Elliot Levey) noticed the pattern.

Charles had firstly got a ‘Craig David’ question correct thanks to his wife Diana (Sian Clifford) coughing.

Later, he secured the top prize of £1million after pal and fellow contestant Tecwen Whittock (Michael Jibson) made it clear which answer to go for.


  • Chris Tarrant tipped for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire return 

Charles’s win created uproar in the ITV offices, dividing the bosses and producers as to whether he did indeed, cheat.

The real-life events made for captivating viewing when brought to life by the cast of the new ITV show.

However, it was the return of a key phrase by Michael Sheen’s Chris which had fans distracted earlier in the episode.

Earlier in his stint on the show, Charles had worked his way up to £250,000.

Reminiscent of what Chris Tarrant used to do during his time on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Michael’s character went to hand Charles the cheque.

Chris said: “Here it is, a cheque for a quarter of a – it sounds strange, doesn’t it? – a quarter of a million pounds.

“Gosh, you’re shaking,” Chris quipped as Charles reached out for the money.

Chris continued: “I know that frankly, you didn’t think you’d be able to equal your wife and frankly, Charles, nor did I.

“This is real money,” Chris added. “£250,000…”

“But we don’t want to give you that!” Chris exclaimed, ripping up the cheque in the process.

The quote brought a laugh from the studio audience on-screen but also had fans at home rejoicing at the return of the famous phrase.

Several quickly took to social media to point out the famous phrase, with one saying: “‘But we don’t wanna give you that’ Been waiting for that line!!!! #Quiz.”
