Celebrities Try to Win a Million Pounds for Charity Tonight on Live Christmas “Millionaire”
ITV is bringing back its popular quiz show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? for another live celebrity edition tonight. With Christmas rapidly approaching Chris Tarrant will welcome three teams of celebrities to take on the Hot Seat and try to win £1,000,000 split between charity and the viewer prize pot. This live edition of Millionaire will air tonight, December 20th, at 9:00PM UK (4:00PM ET). Two more New Years Specials will air on January 1st and 8th.
Celebrities will be playing Millionaire in teams tonight trying to climb the money ladder and take the ultimate prize. Hugo Taylor and Rosemary Shrager from I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! will play together. Hugo said, “I’m excited to do my bit for somebody else around Christmas. I want to raise as much money as I can and just hope I don’t let anybody down!”
Also competing are comedian Lee Mack and national treasure and former Countdown host Des O’Connor. Lee said about playing tonight, “I’m playing for The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust and with Des’s brains and my looks, we’re doomed.” Finally we have JLS’s JB Gill and Oritsé Williams.
As always any prize money won will be split between the team’s charity and the viewer prize pot which one lucky person at home can win. Will that be you? Watch tonight at 9:00PM on ITV and find out.
