School's Out Highlights

16/07/11

Congratulations to all our celebrity contestants who appeared in the hotseat with their children for our
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? LIVE School’s Out Special!


Comedy legend Bob Mortimer was our first celebrity to take to the hotseat. He swapped his usual on screen partner for another, his son, 14 year old Harry.

Bob and Harry raised money for Anthony Nolan, a charity which helps save the lives of those with blood cancer.

They did amazingly well hitting the £50,000 landmark where they had to use their first lifeline of the evening 50:50, this helped them to push forward. When they reached £75,000 they needed to Phone-A-Friend and decided to call Harry's maths teacher Dr King, unfortunately he couldn't help them so they chose to use the Switch lifeline, they weren’t 100% sure and asked the audience for help but not feeling confident they decided to walk away with a fantastic grand total of £75,000.

Up next was a very special "Who Wants To Be A Mini Millionaire?" game with Meryfield and Summerswood Primary School children. Chris asked some tough questions for the chance to win a mountain of sweets! One of the kids enquired "Is it a mountain of sweets or a lifetime supply?!"

Next up was fun-loving presenter Fern Britton with her 14 year old daughter Grace. They faced the BIG BAD CLOCK to raise money for The Firefighters Charity.

Fern and Grace did very well and reached £50,000 with all their lifelines still intact. On the £75,000 question they decided to use their Switch lifeline but struggling with the new question they decided to use 50:50 and their Phone-A-Friend. They called Grace's teacher Mr Gibbons who unfortunately couldn’t help but Fern decided to gamble and go ahead with Mr Gibbons answer, unfortunately it was incorrect. Fern and Grace still walked away with an amazing £50,000.

Our last couple of the night was Jo Calzahge, the 39 year-old undefeated boxing world champion with his 13 year old son Connor. They were playing for Latch the Welsh children’s cancer charity.

With only a short amount of time left on the show before the school bell would ring out, Jo and Conner needed to be quick! They answered their questions incredibly fast without hesitation and managed to get to £5,000 without using any of their lifelines.

When we reached the end of the show one lucky viewer had the chance to win half of the contestant's winnings. Lee from Nuneaton answered a question correctly live on air and won £65,000 plus an amazing home entertainment package!
