Edoho further disclosed that apart from the usual three lifelines which lovers of the show are familier with: ’50/50′ – where the computer eliminates two random wrong options leaving the right option and the other remaining wrong option, ‘Phone a Friend’ – where the contestant has 30 seconds to call one of their five prearranged friends read the question and four possible alternatives to the friend who then has the remaining time to offer input, and ‘Ask the Audience’ – where the audience members use touchpads to designate what they believe the correct option to be, the percentage of the audience choosing each specific option is then displayed to the contestant —  a new lifeline has now been added for this Series 2, ‘Ask The Host.’

This lifeline gives the contestants one chance to ask the host to answer the question.
