Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Family Special 
 
They say in times of test family is best, as three celebrities facing the ultimate challenge call upon their nearest and dearest to help them triumph in Tarrant’s hotseat, in the hope that they can raise mountains of cash for their chosen charities in Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Family Special on ITV. 
 
Will The Xtra Factor host and TV presenter, Caroline Flack remember mother knows best and strike a strike a formidable partnership with her mum to win big money for Quidenham Children’s Hospice? Caroline's says; "My Mum and I watched Millionaire when I was growing up and there was no way I was going to turn down the chance to play myself! Our chosen charity is a small children's hospice close to my mum, and I'm so glad we'll hopefully be able to help them."
 
Also sweating it out in the millionaire hot seat will be singing star Joe McElderry as he teams up with his 70-year-old Gran for the big money quiz. The former The X Factor champion will be hoping his Gran’s years of wisdom will prove invaluable as the pair look to raise cash for Teenage Cancer Trust. Joe says; “I’m really excited and looking forward to the challenge as it is for a great cause. However, I’m also nervous because everyone who goes on says it is always so different when you are sitting in the seat opposite Chris rather than at home.”
 
Finally to take centre stage will be Green Wing actor, Stephen Mangan and his brother-in- law as they look to climb the money tree for Marie Curie Cancer Care. But can the pair work together to win the much sought after six figure cheque? 
 
Quiz master, Chris Tarrant, will be overseeing proceedings ensuring that the celebs are put to the test in order to scale the money tree. The money won by the contestants will be shared 50/50 between their charities and one lucky viewer at home.
