Olympic stars Zara and Anthony bid to raise money for charity on game show

Zara Phillips added a royal touch to Channel 4's game show The Million Pound Drop on Saturday night.

The 31-year-old appeared alongside fellow Olympian Anthony Joshua as the pair bid to raise money for Sported, an Olympic legacy charity for disadvantaged young people.


Anthony, who is a heavyweight boxer, won a gold medal in this summer' Games, whilst Equestrian star Zara gained a silver.

Unfortunately the duo lost their potential winnings on their fouth question, but were consoled by host Davina McCall and rewarded with £5,000 to give to their chosen charity.

Mike Tindall was active on Twitter as he watched his wife on the show, tweeting "nooooooooo!!!! " when the Queen's eldest grandaughter and her partner answered the question incorrectly.

But Sported were still happy to receive the donation, tweeting "good try Zara and Anthony Joshua, better luck next time!"
