Zara Phillips competes on quiz show
Oct 15, 2012, 11:01 GMT
Britain's Zara Phillips took part in a live TV quiz show on Saturday (13.10.12) night.
The Olympic-medal winner - who is the daughter of Princess Anne - teamed with a fellow Olympian, boxer Anthony Joshua, to compete on Channel 4 show 'The Million Pound Drop' to raise money for Sported.
Sadly, the pair lost their potential winnings on the fourth question, but were given a Â£5,000 consolation prize to go to the Olympic legacy charity for disadvantaged young people.
When they failed to give the right answer, Zara's husband Mike Tindall tweeted: 'nooooooooo!!!! (sic)'
Despite their unsuccessful bid at winning Â£1 million on the show, Sported were still happy to receive a donation.
They tweeted: 'Good try Zara and Anthony Joshua, better luck next time!'
'Million Pound Drop' - which is hosted by Davina McCall - sees contestants begin the game with Â£1 million. They are asked a series of progressively difficult questions and have to place bets on what they think is the correct answer, leaving at least one option free of any money at each stage. Any money placed on a wrong answer is lost.
If they make it through to the final eighth question, they are given just two options and must place all their remaining money on one possible answer.
