Zara Phillips to appear on Million Pound Drop Live
Oct 3, 2012, 11:01 GMT
Britain's Zara Phillips is to appear on 'The Million Pound Drop Live'.
The 31-year-old royal is to go on the Channel 4 game show - which is hosted by Davina McCall - alongside fellow Olympian, gold medal-winning boxer Anthony Joshua, to raise money for cancer research.
A source said: 'Having Zara and Anthony on is amazing. They're fans of the show and are keen to make money for cancer research.'
Zara - who won a team silver medal in the three-day eventing at the London 2012 Olympics this summer - will appear on the show on Saturday October 13 alongside Anthony.
The horsewoman's appearance on 'The Million Pound Drop Live' - which has previously attracted star names including Alan Carr, Chris O'Dowd and Jack Whitehall - is part of eight special London 2012 episodes featuring athletes from the Olympics and Paralympics as well as famous sports personalities.
The blonde royal - Queen Elizabeth's eldest granddaughter - is a patron of Cancer Research UK and in 2010 she took part in a celebrity poker tournament in London in aid of the charity.
Zara has also continued her family's long patronage of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and has visited the facility on many occasions.
