From the incredible performances to the razor-sharp script, there was not one thing we didn’t absolutely love about Quiz – and that also includes one very unexpected moment during the final episode.
Wednesday night’s third instalment of the ITV drama featured a surreal scene that, for a moment, took us away from the drama of Charles and Diana Ingram’s trial.
The real-life story saw Charles accused of cheating his way to the jackpot on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? with a supposed scheme involving a series of coughs from his wife Diana and an accomplice.
Viewers of the ITV dramatisation saw Charles contemplating the case, before he was suddenly on the Millionaire set with Diana and Chris Tarrant – played by Sian Clifford and Michael Sheen respectively – to perform an all-singing, all-dancing rendition of Cole Porter’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire from the film High Society.
While Quiz was rooted in realism, the musical interlude certainly did not feature in the real-life story, but it went down a treat on social media…
Wow I wondered how they’d maintain interest in #Quiz in ep 3. Turns out they did it with a big musical number and Helen McCrory QC.

Was not expecting the musical dream sequence but I am 12/10 here for it #Quiz

Just when this show couldn’t get any more intriguing, they throw in a musical number for the heck of it.

My sister just had to come and check the musical interlude was a part of this drama and not a side effect of the Diazapam she’s just taken. #Quiz
