The episode opens with Fitz and Olivia arguing in a hotel room due to her selected boyfriend, Jake, as her ‘fake’ boyfriend at Mellie’s request so the media stay off the reports of an affair. This is a very different sight of their relationship from the start of last week’s episode when Olivia and Fitz were making out happily when Mellie walked in on them. They are fighting because Fitz can’t trust Jake around Olivia, “He has become compromised.”

Olivia wants to deny these reports, but new VP candidate Andrew says the reports are valid. Pope and Associates start working to cover up the drug problem for Andrew explains that he needed pain relievers for bad back pain and didn’t want to go to a doctor because he was campaigning against drugs at the time.


 Who is behind Carla’s search? Olivia thinks it was her father, who wants to sabotage Fitz’s campaign. She calls Jake at once, calling for help in seeing if it was him. Jake asks Charlie to dig into it.

 Later on in the episode, the drug story is sorted out and is called off when the source gets discredited (though it wasn’t) Olivia knows it was Mellie who was at the centre of that story and tries to sympathize with Mellie, who doesn’t want any of it, and points out how Olivia doesn’t know what it’s like to really say no to a man.


There was a moment of father/daughter bonding between Olivia and Rowan Pope at a restaurant and asks about the threat against the President. On her way out, Olivia spots Quinn spying on her (Quinn had been spying on Charlie at first, who had been spying on Rowan following Jake’s orders) Olivia lectures Quinn in the car and invites her back to the team, but she says she can’t see Huck again (He licked my face) Olivia pleads with her, but Quinn pulls a fun on her forcing Olivia to leave her car. Olivia yells at Jake for putting Quinn on her father, which Jake denies he did so. While he’s visiting her place, he complains that if he’s going to be the fake boyfriend, he wants food in the fridge, then he goes to get ready for real sex with his fake girlfriend.

 Jake yells at Quinn because he doesn’t think she is capable of being in his organisation, but Quinn backs up her prowess for she shows evidence – photographical evidence – of Rowan and Leo Bergen – meeting which means trouble and went undetected within B613.


At the top of the episode Mellie meets with VP candidate Andrew, who appears interested in getting back with her. In the flashback, fourteen years ago, Mellie and Fitz are arguing for Mellie won’t let Fitz touch her following his father raping her, Andrew overhears this and sees her as she storms out. Later, Andrew finds Mellie passed out on the floor after overdoing on prescription pills for it was an attempted suicide, later on there’s another flashback with Fitz being away, Mellie turns down Andrew’s advances and imparts on him the reason behind her attempted suicide. It turns out that they never had an affair after all, but her loyalty to Fitz doesn’t last that long for Mellie and Andrew meet again, they talk for a bit then make out. Mellie quickly regrets this and runs out of the room.


Mama Pope returns for Harrison talks with Adnan Salif after an evening spent romantically together. Adnan appears at the Grant Campaign HQ and talks to Cyrus and wants to help them out, at first we don’t understand this until the end of the episode when it was revealed that it was Olivia’s mother that is pulling the strings, but what is their intentions?


Pubilus was almost revealed when James is afraid that Cyrus is going to find out that Pubilus is actually him. James and David meet up to discuss this and makes a meeting with Vanessa, but David goes in James’ place, but he’s kidnapped right before meeting the reporter. Was it Cyrus’ guy that took him? He calls Abby to her that he loves her, the car stops and it is revealed to be Abby and Huck who grabbed him so he wouldn’t get caught.


Meanwhile, we see that Jake has the highest security access that is higher than the President’s. He hears Olivia tell Fitz that she’s not sure about her feelings for Jake (this one of many cliff hangers) Huck apologises to Olivia with numerous amounts of coffee even though Olivia doesn’t drink it, where words are said to Olivia about Huck’s behaviour and the reasons why he did what he did to Quinn.

The episodes, produced by CBS Productions and Fulwell 73, will air in the US on the CBS Television Network and share highlights of James’s time in the UK. The Late Late Show’s signature musical and comedy segments, such as Crosswalk: The Musical and Take a Break, will be given a British twist.

Ben Winston, executive producer of The Late Late Show with James Corden, said: “Broadcasting The Late Late Show from James’s hometown of London last year was such a thrill. Thanks to CBS and our partners at Sky One, we are back for a second year. We are looking forward to a fun week in London, putting a UK spin on our nightly show.”

Philip Edgar-Jones, head of entertainment at Sky, said: “James Corden is one of Sky One’s brightest stars and we are delighted to welcome him home for his London recordings of The Late Late Show. And with such a stellar lineup of guests, it’s going to make British summer time even hotter.”

Sky One will broadcast the homegrown episodes from 19-22 June at 10.00pm, and they will also be available on TV streaming service NOW TV.

James has been a firm favourite on Sky One and NOW TV for a number of years, presenting A League of Their Own and appearing in two successful series of A League of Their Own: US Road Trip.

The Late Late Show with James Cordon is available daily via Sky’s on demand service and NOW TV. The show regularly features a mix of celebrity guests, musical acts, games and sketches. The show holds the YouTube record for the most-watched late-night clip with Adele Carpool Karaoke, which has more than 180 million views. The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights on CBS. Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe are the executive producers.


To mark the 20th anniversary of the global hit game show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, the iconic programme will return to ITV for a week of celebratory episodes, starting this Saturday. Airing as a stripped event across the week, the 7×60 minute episodes will play out every night and will be hosted by brand new presenter, click here Jeremy Clarkson.

The show will offer members of the public the chance to win £1,000,000. Each contestant will have the opportunity to answer 15 questions on their way to hopefully winning this life changing prize.

The contestants will be helped along the way by familiar lifelines of ‘Ask The Audience’, ‘Phone a Friend’ and ’50:50’, plus a brand new fourth lifeline; ‘Ask The Host’.

This brand new, additional lifeline allows the contestant to ‘Ask The Host’ if he [Jeremy Clarkson] knows the answer or if he has an opinion on what it might be. Jeremy never sees the questions ahead of the contestants so there is no guarantee he will know the answer. Will Jeremy be able to help someone along the way to winning one million pounds or will it cost them everything?

In another twist, contestants will be able to set their own second safety net amount. There is a fixed safety net at £1,000, meaning once a contestant has successfully answered Question 5 and won £1,000, that’s the minimum they will take home.

Traditionally, the second safety net was automatically set at £32,000. However, in these seven celebratory episodes, this new twist will allow the second safety net to be set by each contestant. Once they have banked £1,000, they will be given the opportunity to set their safety net ahead of the next question being asked. They can set their safety net only once and anywhere from £2,000 to £500,000. Will contestants be brave enough to risk losing big money in the hope to go all the way?

Jeremy Clarkson said “If the contestant chooses that lifeline [Ask The Host], they get to ask me if I know the answer. God help them. Anyone who doesn’t win £1,000,000 is bound, at some point, to ask me if I know the answer. And if it’s 1970’s prog rock music, I probably will. If it’s anything other than that, I probably won’t.”

On talking about the safety net changes, Jeremy Clarkson added “They can choose where it goes. So they choose how much they are going to lose at any given moment, which is a very clever idea. That requires balls of steel. To go beyond, say £32,000, when you’re going to drop back to £1,000 if you get it wrong. To say, ‘no I’ll set it at £64,000 and risk losing £63,000 if I get it wrong’, balls of steel.”

The series will be produced by Stellify Media with filming taking place in Manchester. Commissioned for ITV by Siobhan Greene, Head of Entertainment, with Ben Kelly Commissioning Editor, it will be executive produced by Fiona Clark and Stellify’s joint managing directors Kieran Doherty and Matthew Worthy, with Julia Knowles as Director. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is a Sony Pictures Television format.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? starts Saturday 5th May at 9.15pm on ITV and continues nightly thorough-out the week at 9pm

More Details on All The Format of The Show:
In each episode, six different contestants will play ‘fastest finger first’ for the chance to win a place in the coveted chair and play the game. If a game concludes with one contestant, the remaining contestants will play ‘fastest finger first’ again for another opportunity to play for one million pounds.

Each contestant can see the question, answers, use their lifelines and still choose not to play the question and walk away with any money they have banked. The host is never shown the answer in advance of the contestant deciding to play the question and locking in their answer by saying ‘Final Answer’. The host does not have an earpiece or have any way to find out the answer.

Fastest finger first
The host will read out a question and four answers. Contestants will need to put the answers in the correct order. Fastest finger first questions are timed and the contestant who answers correctly in the fastest time, wins a place in the chair to play for one million pounds.

The contestants will face 15 questions for the chance to win one million pounds. Money will increase in the following increments:

Question 1 – £100
Question 2 – £200
Question 3 – £300
Question 4 – £500
Question 5 – £1,000
Question 6 – £2,000
Question 7 – £4,000
Question 8 – £8,000
Question 9 – £16,000
Question 10 – £32,000
Question 11 – £64,000
Question 12 – £125,000
Question 13 – £250,000
Question 14 – £500,000
Question 15 – £1,000,000

Safety Nets
There is a fixed safety net at £1,000. This means that once a contestant has answered the £1,000 question correctly, this is the minimum they will take home. Traditionally, the second safety net was automatically set at £32,000.

However, in these seven celebratory episodes, a new twist will allow the second safety net to be set by each contestant in play. Once they have successfully answered Question 5 and won £1,000, they will be given the opportunity to set their safety net ahead of the next question being asked. They can set their safety net anywhere from £2,000 to £500,000. The can only set this once during their game and until they set their second safety net, they will be asked ahead of seeing the next question. If they choose to set their safety net at the next question, they must correctly answer that question for it to be set and be in play. For example; A contestant has successfully answered Question 10 and won £32,000, they could then be asked if they want to set their safety net at £64,000. If they say yes, they will then see the question, four possible answers and can decide if they want to play. If they play and correctly answer the question, the minimum they will go home with is £64,000. They can continue the game and their safety net will remain at £64,000. This cannot be moved or reset. If they answer the question incorrectly, they will lose £31,000 and leave with £1,000.

Four lifelines are available to all contestants to use once at any point in their game, one more than was traditionally available.

The four lifelines available to each contestant in the chair are:

Contestants can choose to use this lifeline to remove two random wrong answers, leaving one correct answer and one random wrong answer. Even after they have used this lifeline, the contestant can still choose to not answer the question and take the money that they have currently banked.

Ask The Audience
If a contestant decides to use this lifeline, the host will read the question and all possible answers. The host will ask the audience to vote for the answer they think is correct via an electronic keypad within an allotted time. The audience will not have access to any device where they could find out the answer from a third party or Internet. The contestant does not need to take the advice given nor continue playing the game. The contestant can still choose to take the money they have currently banked.

Phone A Friend
If the contestant wants to contact a friend, the host will lead the call and explain to the chosen friend that the contestant needs assistance on a question. Once the host hands the call over, the contestant will have 30 seconds to read the question, possible answers and have any discussions. The ‘friend’ will not see the countdown clock. The contestant does not need to take the advice given nor continue playing the game. They can still choose to take the money they have currently banked.

Prior to arriving to set, each contestant will be asked to select two ‘phone a friends’ and give their details. On the day that each contestant is set to play the game (six contestants per episode), Production will send an independent security team to all phone a friend residents in that episode. Once a contestant plays fastest finger first and wins a place in the chair, the security team will enter both of the ‘phone a friends’ residents. This is to ensure that if and when phoned, the friend does not source outside help to answer the question. Once the contestant has finished their game or used their lifeline, security will leave.

Ask The Host
This is a brand new, additional lifeline available once to all contestants. This lifeline allows the contestant to ‘Ask The Host’ if he [Jeremy Clarkson] knows the answer or if he has an opinion on what it might be. The host can give his opinion, answer or share his thoughts but there is no guarantee he will know the answer. Once he has shared his thoughts / given as much as he can, he will say ‘That’s my final answer’ which signifies the end of his assistance and the contestant can not ask the host any more questions. The host is never shown the answers in advance of the contestant saying this is my ‘Final Answer’. The contestant does not need to take the advice given nor continue playing the game and can still choose to take any money they have currently banked. If the contestant does decide to play, the contestant will select the answer and say ‘final answer’. Once the answer is locked in, the contestant and host will have the answer revealed at the same time.
