Louis Smith appears on the Million Pound Drop

Friday September 14, 2012

Medal-winning gymnast Louis Smith is to take on another TV challenge by teaming up with fellow Olympian Greg Rutherford to tackle Channel 4's The Million Pound Drop.

The adrenaline-inducing programme returns to the screen this Friday, with guests such as Alex Brooker and Josh Widdecome also lined up as contestants.

The money accrued from the celebrity special will go towards funding for Paralympic charities.

So far, the charity version of The Million Pound Drop, featuring names such as Vic Reeves, Professor Green, Countdown's Rachel Riley and Jedward, has raised a total of £700,000.

Louis has had a very busy schedule to contend with since his silver medal win.

The gymnast will be a contestant on the new series of Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday.
