Winning for charity 

Whether any of the five celebrities manage to make to the million pound jackpot is being kept well under wraps until the show is aired.

But host Jeremy has promised there will be all the usual Who Wants To Be A Millionaire tension that we know and love.

He said: "We have a great line-up of celebrities for these two special episodes. Even I had heard of most of them.

"There was Prue Leith who was so warm and wonderful and great fun, and Piers Morgan, who was... also on the show.

"Without giving too much away, there was some skilful game playing, some wild stabs in the dark and some moments of toe-curling embarrassment.

"So why not grab a mince pie, put your feet up and tune in!"

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Celebrity Specials air on Boxing Day ay 9.30pm and on December 27th at 9.15pm on ITV.
