The Million Pound Drop Live returns to Channel 4 and there will be some well known faces joining in the fun as they attempt to win big for charity. Celeb duo Mollie and Rochelle from girl band The Saturdays join the latest pairs of contestants when the new series launches on Saturday 24th March.
Davina McCall will once again be at the helm, guiding the contestants as they try to keep hold of one million pounds in cash over eight tricky questions. Played out on The Drop, the possible answers to each question are displayed on four trapdoors, where one wrong answer can see thousands of pounds drop to the floor.
Last series Chris Moyles and Andi Peters managed to hold on to £25,000 for their chosen charities, but how will our latest celeb pairing get on?
Viewers at home can play with a virtual million pounds alongside the contestants with the hugely successful play along online game. And those who do will also have the chance to apply for the show and play for real money, live on Channel 4 during the new series.
The series was ordered by Entertainment Commissioner Syeda Irtizaali. Ed de Burgh is Series Producer and the Executive Producers are David Flynn, Tom Blakeson and Michelle Woods.
