Davina is back with another Million Pound Drop

The Million Pound Drop returns to Channel 4 this summer for a brand new series

Hosted by Davina McCall, contestants are given a million pounds in real money; the question is how much can they keep hold of? Only seven questions stand between them and this staggering amount of cash. All they have to do is keep hold of it by correctly placing their winnings on the trapdoor displaying the correct answer. However, one wrong move could literally see hundreds of thousands of pounds drop through the floor.

This series, each episode will also feature a specially themed game that will see surprising pairs and four player teams take on The Drop. We’ll also be joined by some well-known faces, all playing to win some serious cash for their chosen charities.

Davind McCall 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!”

Justin Gorman, Head of Entertainment for Channe 4 said: “It’s great to welcome back one of our most exhilarating shows, and once again we’re excited to add another twist to proceedings.”

James Fox, Remarkable TV’s Head of Entertainment commented: “We’re thrilled to be back and, with more ways to play than ever before, we can’t wait to see who’s got what it takes to handle the pressure and beat the Drop.”

Viewers at home can play with a virtual million pounds alongside the contestants with the hugely successful play along online game or with The Million Pound Drop mobile app which has now been downloaded over 2.7 million times making it Channel 4’s most successful programme app.
