Celebrity Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Pantomime Special



This isn’t the Christmas special, mind you, merely a pre-festive bonus. Pairs of celebs take the escalating quiz while wearing panto costumes. First in the hot seats are David Hasselhoff (Captain Hook) and Denise Welch (fairy godmother). A nation will shout at their screens as the two resort to asking the audience which make of cars carries the Spirit of Ecstasy on its bonnets. Because it’s a celebrity show the phoneable friends are well-known, and Radio Times gets a nod, too: in the context of Twitter, are we in fact what the abbreviation RT stands for?


To celebrate the festive season, panto stars Denise Welch and David Hasselhoff, Cheryl Fergison and Tim Vine, and John Partridge and Alison Hammond take part in a one-off edition of the big-money quiz, aiming to raise as much cash as possible for their chosen charities and one lucky viewer. As ever, the contestants can ask the audience, phone a friend or go 50-50 if they get stuck. Chris Tarrant hosts.
