Gogglebox duo in Million Pound Drop

Gogglebox stars Chris Steed and Stephen Webb are set to show off their general knowledge skills, after signing up to quiz show The Million Pound Drop.

The pair, who became household names after appearing in the Channel 4 reality show, will join forces in a bid to win up to £1 million in the celebrity edition of the new series.

Chatty Man host Alan Carr is to team up with BBC DJ Nick Grimshaw, while Jonathan Ross will be joined with his wife Jane Goldman and their three children as they take on the Drop. The stars of Educating Yorkshire will also appear on the game show, as they attempt to win money for their chosen charities.

Davina McCall returns to host the new series of The Million Pound Drop, which returns to Channel 4 this summer.

Each episode will also include a specially themed game that sees unique teams take on the Drop. These include the very first Drop blind date, a special "generation gap" game and a workplace special.

Davina said: "So pleased The Million Pound Drop is coming back! I literally love, love, love presenting it and can't wait to see if anyone can win big this season!"

Contestants are given £1 million in real money, and have to keep hold of it by correctly placing their winnings on the correct answer - but one wrong move could see the bulk of their cash disappearing.
