Paddy and wife take on Millionaire

Paddy McGuinness and his wife Christine are among the celebrity couples taking part in a special edition of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

The couple, who tied the knot last June, will take the hot seat and face question-master Chris Tarrant in Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Celebrity Couples Special on Sunday May 20 at 7pm on ITV1 to raise money for charity.

Take Me Out host Paddy hopes to raise cash for the British Heart Foundation, while former beauty queen Christine has chosen to support Breast Cancer Care, as they try to win a million pounds by agreeing on the right answer to Chris' teasers,

Also taking part are TV presenter Eamonn Holmes and his partner, both on and off screen, Ruth Langsford and British rowing champion and Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell and his presenter wife Beverley Turner.

Eamonn, who is hoping to raise money for Clic Sargent's Northern Ireland Homes from Home Appeal, said: "The biggest achievement for us will be just agreeing on an answer. We're thinking of introducing options A, B, C and D into our everyday dilemmas."

Ruth added: "It's a huge thrill getting to appear on a programme you have grown up watching as a viewer, but the bigger thrill is playing for the Alzheimer's Society. The money we are trying to win could really make a difference. I am playing with Eamonn but playing for my dad who suffered from the disease for many years."

Athlete James and his wife are playing for Headway, a charity set up to give help and support to people affected by brain injury.
