Viewers will also have chance to win big money, as the cash won by the contestants will be shared 50/50 between their chosen charity and a lucky viewer!
 
SIR STEVE REDGRAVE AND ZAK

Sir Steve will be joined by 14-year-old son Zak, they are taking part on behalf of Sparks, who fund life-saving research into conditions affecting babies, children and mums-to-be. Commenting on his involvement, the five times Olympic champion said; “I am thrilled to be taking part in the show with my son Zak. I am sure it will be a challenge but I think we will be a strong team and we are looking forward to it. It will be great to help raise money for my chosen charity Sparks.”
 
SPARKS is a leading children’s medical research charity dedicated to funding and championing pioneering research into a range of conditions affecting babies, children and mums-to-be. Since 1991, Sparks has committed over £22 million into pioneering research projects across a wide spectrum of medical conditions including childhood cancers, cerebral palsy, premature birth and spina bifida. In total, the charity has funded 233 research projects in more than 80 hospitals and universities across the UK. Through the research Sparks fund, they aim to improve the quality of life for children and families affected by serious illness or disability today, whilst seeking ways to better diagnose, treat and prevent these conditions in the future. The medical breakthroughs the charity make possible, make a difference not only across the UK but for thousands of women, children and families around the world.  http://www.sparks.org.uk  


KELVIN AND BRAYDEN

Kelvin, who plays Andy Sugden in Emmerdale will be joined by 15-year-old brother Brayden. They are aiming to reach the magic million for The Cardiomyopathy Association, a charity that provides information and support to families affected by the heart muscle disease cardiomyopathy and DEBRA, who work on behalf of people in the UK with the genetic skin blistering condition Epidermolysis Bullosa. Kelvin said about taking his place in the Hotseat; “I’m really really nervous about going on Millionaire, obviously I want to do the best I can for the charity and at the same time, I don’t want to sound too thick, hopefully we’ll do well.

Cardiomyopathy is a heart muscle disease that affects people of all ages, including babies.  It is usually inherited. It is the main cause of sudden death in the under 35s but, when appropriately treated, most affected people can lead a long and full life. The Cardiomyopathy Association provides information and support to affected families and helps educate the medical profession about best practice in diagnosing and treating the condition.

DEBRA is the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) - a painful genetic condition which causes the skin to blister and shear at the slightest friction, or even spontaneously. DEBRA focuses its work in three areas:
  • They fund pioneering research to find effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure for EB.
  • They provide an enhanced specialist EB Nursing Service, in partnership with the NHS, to deliver optimal healthcare to children and adults living with EB.
  • They provide social care support to help people live with dignity.
This is a service parents and people with EB can call on, to reach out for advice, advocacy in the face of red tape, and emergency grants. They provide access to specially adapted holiday homes and opportunities for social interaction. They interconnect each of these areas to ensure a holistic approach to care, from birth, for as long as it is needed. http://www.debra.org.uk

DERMOT AND MOLLY

Finally, Dermot and his 15-year-old daughter Molly will be hoping to get a gold star by raising money for Operation Florian, a charity working to promote the protection of life amongst communities in need, by the provision of equipment and training to improve fire fighting and rescue capabilities. Speaking ahead of the recording, Dermot comments ‘I’m feeling very nervous about doing well for the Operation Florian cause, but I’m also really excited about the show and up for the challenge.’
 
Operation Florian is an international humanitarian charity, set up and run by UK firefighters. The charity sends emergency rescue firefighters out to disaster zones, along with uniforms, UK fire service equipment donations and also reconditioned old fire engines. These are sent to some of the poorest regions of the world, and locals are trained in how to use them, thus saving tens of thousands of lives every year with each fire engine. http://operationflorian.com
