Watching the US version of "Who wants to be a millionaire" I was a bit mythed in that they had changed the rules slightly. despite the vast amounts of commercial breaks that they run during the show, they have reduced one of the safety win amounts from $32,000 to $25,000 and added an extra life-line.

I'm curious to know if they've done the same in the UK too.

Maybe it say's something about the relative intelligence of the UK & US ;) ;)

well here in the US it's screened every weekday so I guess they've had to reduce the amount to help pay for the larger prizes even though you get about 4 or 5 commercial breaks during the entire show
