The 72-year-old TV veteran felt "disloyal" choosing to watch 'Luther' on New Year's Day (01.01.19) instead of the new series of the quiz programme - which he hosted from 1998 to 2014 - but admits he also wouldn't want to host any more of the episodes.

Speaking on 'This Morning', he said: "I watched 'Luther' actually. I'm terribly sorry. I feel disloyal.

"I did it ['Millionaire'] for 15 years, about 700 shows.

"I loved it - I had a fantastic time but I don't want to do any more, so good luck."

Chris previously admitted he would've "politely turned down" an offer to return to 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?' - which is now hosted by Jeremy Clarkson - had he been asked.

His spokesperson previously said: "Chris thought the programme had run its course.

"He wasn't approached but if he was, he would have politely turned it down. Chris is delighted it's back and wishes it well."

Jeremy recently admitted people have told him he has been "nicer" to the quiz players in the latest series of the show.

The 58-year-old star said: "I'm told I've been nicer to the contestants.

"But last year there were some very stupid contestants who didn't warrant any niceness.

"This time they've been, by and large with one or two exceptions, sparky and on it and bright and deserving of a place in the chair."

Jeremy is best known for co-presenting the BBC motoring show 'Top Gear' from October 2002 to March 2015.
