Sex or Pizza? The Million Pound Drop Chooses Sex!
We've all jokingly asked each other hypothetical questions such as 'would you rather have sex or pizza?', but what would you do if you had £75,000 riding on it? Saturday night saw contestants playing The Million Pound Drop facing that very dilemma.
Despite admitting their love for pizza, young couple Mel and Neil decided they'd be better placed to answer a sex-related question, and were very glad they did!
Playing for some seriously big bucks, the pair were presented with a question from Lovehoney's 'Fast and Frisky Sex Survey', which revealed when, where and how often we are having sex.
With just 60 seconds to decide which day of the week we are most likely to have sex, the couple swiftly reasoned that 'on Fridays you're knackered after work', splitting their money between Saturday and Sunday.
Airing at 8pm on Friday and Saturday nights, The Million Pound Drop is a multiple-choice quiz show hosted by Davina McCall which offers people the chance to win up to a million pounds by betting on what they think are the correct answers. Players place wads of cash onto trapdoors corresponding to possible answers – which fly open if they are wrong, losing potentially hundreds of thousands of pounds.
At the climax of the show, players were asked to select which day of the week they felt people were most likely to have sex.
With possible answers of Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the couple decided to place £50,000 on their Saturday trapdoor and £25,000 over Sunday's slot.
Relief flooded their faces as they watched the trapdoors labelled Friday and Sunday fall open, losing them £25,000, but ensuring the safety of their last £50,000.
Davina excitedly revealed that according to Lovehoney's survey, 16% of people named Friday as their friskiest day, with 23% choosing Sunday and 37% opting for Saturday sessions.
As the live show aired on a Saturday evening, Davina joked along with the audience, saying 'there's probably no point us being here, as everyone's off doing it right now!'.
The prime-time Channel 4 show offers a downloadable Million Pound Drop smartphone app with an interactive function, giving viewers the chance to play along in real time with contestants to see how they would have fared in the same situation.
The show has an audience of 2 million people, and a whopping 66,677 people played along to our sexy question, and judging by Davina's reaction it would appear she was every bit as excited by the survey as the nation was!
If you took our Fast and Frisky Sex Survey back in February, then we'd like to say a big thank you! You never know where our research will end up…
