Will there be a second series of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire drama Quiz on ITV? – The Sun

QUIZ was a TV phenomenon when it hit our screens in April.

The sensational ITV show is the dramatisation of the infamous Who Wants To Be A Millionaire coughing scandal and boasts an all-star cast including Matthew Macfadyen and Michael Sheen.

Will there be a second series of Quiz?

Although there has been no official confirmation of a second series, the writer of Quiz, James Graham, told the Sun he wants to look at the life of Charles and Diana Ingram after their 2003 fraud conviction.

The Ingrams, who were convicted of a coughing plot to bag a £1million in 2001, are said to be planning an appeal in the wake of James’s three-parter.

Graham said if there is a series two, it “would be a ‘20 years later’ story, looking at what’s happened to that family in the intervening period.”

He added: “As someone who has been fixated on this story since he was 18 years old, I’ll be keen to see how their story unfolds.

"And I can’t pretend that I wouldn’t pick up the phone to ITV and go, ‘Do you think there’s something in this?’”

What happened in ITV's Quiz?

Quiz is a dramatisation of the Who Wants to Be A Millionaire coughing scandal.

The show is split into three parts: the creation of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, the infamous coughing episode, and the court case.

In 2001, Major Charles Ingram answered 15 questions correctly to sensationally scoop the jackpot on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

But the cheque was taken from him as he left the studio as suspicions began to surface.

A court ruled he had answered the questions through help from fellow contestant Tecwen Whittock, who coughed to alert him to the right answers.

What have the Ingrams been up to since their conviction?

Within months Charles and Diana Ingram went on Chanel 4’s Wife Swap with the late Jade Goody and her boyfriend, Jeff Brazier.

The couple also appeared on Channel 4’s The Games.

In 2010, Charles lost three toes in a lawnmower accident after he slipped on a rotten apple.

Last year the couple went bankrupt for a fourth time and moved from Wiltshire to Bath, where they sell jewellery.
