Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? is returning to ITV this Christmas with two celebrity specials – and Piers Morgan has signed up.
The controversial Good Morning Britain host is due to appear on the show alongside Diversity star Jordan Banjo in a bid to win the £1,000,000 prize for charity.
In the second celebrity special Great British Bake Off’s Pru Leith, Coronation Street’s Kym Marsh and comedian Ronni Ancona take a seat in the famous chair and put their knowledge to the test in front of the nation.
Each of the celebrities will be faced with 15 questions, ranging from £100 to £1,000,000 and will have four lifelines to help them along the way. Due to no audience being present, the lifelines will be 50:50, Ask The Host and the celebrities will have two Phone a Friend lifelines.
This week, the US version of the show celebrated their first-ever Celebrity Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? winner, with chef and TV personality David Chang scooping $1million for charity.
Will these celebrities be able to match him and take home the top prize?

‘We have a great line-up of celebrities for these two special episodes,’ Jeremy enthused.
‘Even I’d heard of most of them. There was Pru Leith who was warm and wonderful and great fun, and Piers Morgan who was… also on the show.
‘Without giving too much away, there was some skilful gameplay, 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!’
Will someone come out triumphant and win big on Boxing Day for their chosen charity? Or will they leave red faced with embarrassment?
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Celebrity Specials air Boxing Day at 9.30pm and the 27th December at 9.15pm on ITV.
