– Celeb pair to take on The Drop Friday 3rd February
Every Friday and Saturday over five consecutive weekends, Davina McCall will be guiding pairs of contestants as they face the daunting Drop in the hope of taking home some seriously big money.
Joining the latest pairs of contestants this series will be celeb duo Dermot O’Leary and Fearne Cotton who will be eager to win big for their chosen charity when they play The Million Pound Drop Live on Friday 3rd February on Channel 4.
Dermot and Fearne will be playing for charity CoppaFeel! which aims to eradicate the late detection and misdiagnosis of breast cancer by encouraging regular breast checks and by raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.
Just eight questions stand between Dermot and Fearne and the million pounds.
Last year saw some of the biggest wins in the show’s history, plus celebrity pairing Jack Whitehall and his father Michael won a staggering £300,000 for their chosen charities.
Viewers at home can play with a virtual million pounds alongside the contestants with the hugely successful play along online game – and this series those online players will also have the chance to apply to be on the show playing for a real million.
The series was ordered by Entertainment Commissioner Syeda Irtizaali and will be Executive Produced by David Flynn, Tom Blakeson and Michelle Woods.
