The first picture of Michael Sheen playing Chris Tarrant in the upcoming ITV show Quiz has been released.

The drama is based on the infamous Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? cheating scandal.

The photo shows Sheen in character in a scene portraying the 2003 trial of former army major Charles Ingram, who won £1m on the quiz.

Ingram, his wife Diana and their accomplice Tecwen Whittock were found guilty of cheating their way to the top prize in 2001.

Ingram, who will be played by Matthew Macfayden, was accused of listening out for coughs from college lecturer Whittock, who was in the audience.
