Just days before Christmas, Chris Fountain appeared in Paddy’s Show and Telly – an ITV quiz show hosted by Paddy McGuinness.

Chris and his team mate, Coronation Street co-star, Antony Cotton, pitted their wits against three other celebrity teams, answering questions about the year’s television shows with the prize for the winning team being £20,000.

The show was fantastic and we were delighted that Chris and Antony beat off their rivals, giving them each £10,000 to donate to charities of their choice.

We cannot thank Chris enough for donating his prize money to the Myotubular Trust and the British Heart Foundation. We are indebted to Chris who earlier in 2012 took part in ITV’s Family Fortunes, securing a donation for the Trust then too.

Chris’s inspiration for raising funds for the Myotubular Trust is 14 year old family friend, Harry, who has myotubular myopathy.

Congratulations and heartfelt thanks to Chris and, of course, his team mate Antony for such a great performance.
