Dermot O’Leary and Fearne Cotton to face the Drop

The duo will be playing for the charity CoppaFeel! which aims to eradicate the late detection and misdiagnosis of breast cancer by encouraging regular breast checks and by raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

Every Friday and Saturday over five consecutive weekends, Davina McCall will be guiding pairs of contestants as they face the daunting Drop in the hope of taking home some seriously big money.

Viewers at home can play with a virtual million pounds alongside the contestants with the hugely successful play along online game – and this series those online players will also have the chance to apply to be on the show playing for a real million.
