Sir Alex Ferguson will appear on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? for charity

Sir Alex Ferguson will re-unite with Manchester United fan and News celebrity Eamonn Holmes to win money for charity on the TV show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

After winning £32,000 9 years ago, they aim to do better this time around.

Holmes said: ‘Although it’s a tremendous honour to be invited back, the pressure is on to see if we can better our winnings. It will be a chance to see if Sir Alex still possesses his winning ways and if we can get the better of Chris Tarrant with our mind games.’

The Christmas edition of the show will be at 9pm on Thursday.
