Millionaire Christmas Show

24/12/10

Festive Millionaire!


Joining Chris Tarrant for a special festive edition of Britain's most popular game show will be a soon-to-be-unveiled, all-star, line-up of celebrities who will play LIVE against the clock for the first time, in an attempt to win money for their favourite charities.

Playing live in the studio will be: Ann Widdecombe, David Haye, Chris Evans and James Martin, Gok Wan, Carol Vorderman, Mikey North and Katy Cavanagh.

And there's a further surprise in store... not only will the celebrities be playing to win money for charity, they will also be playing for the audience at home. The money the celebrity pair wins will be shared 50/50 between the charity... and a lucky viewer!

A phone number and the website for the free route of entry will appear on the TV screen. Viewers will then have a set amount of time to phone in and at the end of the game one viewer will be randomly selected.

They will be put through to the studio where Chris Tarrant will ask them one more question. They must answer within a set amount of time. Get it right and they win the cash. Get it wrong and the chance passes to the next viewer on the line, until someone answers correctly.

This year's New Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Celebrity Christmas Special is 75 minutes long, so there will be an opportunity for two home viewer games, giving an extra chance to play and win some money, just in time to brighten up Christmas!

Ann Widdecombe is playing for Safe Haven for Donkeys In The Holy Land

Safe Haven is an organisation dedicated to the welfare of working and abandoned donkeys in Israel and the Palestinian territories.

David Haye is playing for The Nicholls' Spinal Injury Foundation

The Nicholls' Spinal Injury Foundation was founded by chef David Nicholls following an accident in which his son, Daniel, was left paralysed from the arms down. It is focused on raising money in order to fund innovative medical research into the repair and cure of spinal cord injury. http://nichollsfoundation.org.uk



Chris Evans is playing for Chase Hospice

CHASE hospice care for children provides nursing, practical and emotional support to families with children who are not expected to reach their 19th birthday across South West London, Surrey and Sussex. http://www.chasecare.org.uk/



James Martin is playing for Karting for the Disabled

Karting for the Disabled is a project between Karting Endeavour, a group of drivers who do not wish their disability to interfere with their love of motorsport and BRDC Stars of Tomorrow - the karting championship from which Britain's recently crowed FIA Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton learnt his craft. Its aim is to help people with disabilities realise their racing dreams to participate in motorsport by providing hand-controlled karts and steering wheels to all the major karting centres.

Gok Wan is playing for Kidscape

Kidscape is committed to keeping children safe from abuse. It is the first charity in the UK established specifically to prevent bullying and child sexual abuse. Kidscape believes that protecting children from harm is key, and they offer everything from a support helpline for parents of bullied children, to booklets and training videos on child protection and parenting. They also run a National Comprehensive Training Programme on child safety and behaviour management issues, as well as confidence-building sessions for children who are bullied. http://www.kidscape.org.uk/



Carol Vorderman is playing for the Blue Lamp Foundation

Set up by PC David Rathband who suffered horrific injuries after being shot by Raoul Moat earlier this year, the Blue Lamp Foundation aims to raise £1m in the next 3 years to cover the unexpected costs from loss of income, travel expenses and emergency child care for members of the emergency services and their families who experience severe financial hardship after being injured in the line of duty. The message is simple - the emergency services put their lives on the line for the public and this is how we can repay them. http://www.bluelamp-foundation.org/



Mikey North is playing for The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion safeguards the welfare, interests and memory of those who are serving or who have served in the Armed Forces. They are one of the UK's largest membership organisations and recognised as custodians of Remembrance. They also run the annual Poppy Appeal. http://www.britishlegion.org.uk/



Katy Cavanagh is playing for the Coronation Street 50th Anniversary Charity Appeal

The Coronation Street 50th Anniversary Appeal is an umbrella organisation raising money for three charity partners nominated by the cast as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations; Cancer Research UK, The Christie and the NSPCC. Any donations are split amongst all three charities equally and help make a real difference to the lives of children, families and adults all over the UK. http://www.corrie50appeal.co.uk/
