The former Manchester United boss will appear alongside This Morning's Eamonn Holmes for a celebrity edition of the programme which will air on UTV on Thursday.

Holmes, who won £32,000 during his last performance on the show with the football manager, said: "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.

"Although it's a tremendous honour to be invited back, the pressure is on to see if we can better our winnings."

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? is bowing out next year, but there are two further pre-recorded celebrity specials to be screened in the coming months.

Former Westlife star Kian Egan and Olympic medalist Rebecca Adlington, recent contestants on I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!, are also taking part.

Also lined up to appear is Loose Women star Carol Vorderman, and the maths whiz will be hoping to find the formula to win cash for charity when she is paired with actress Caroline Quentin.

Vorderman said: "It's my birthday on Christmas Eve - the reason I'm called Carol - so a nice million-pound question would be a lovely birthday present for my chosen charity too."
