McCartneys .not Good Enough. For Tv Quiz

Rock legend SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY and his wife HEATHER MILLS have been rejected as potential contestants for the British version of television quiz WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?

The newly-weds were keen to make an appearance on the celebrity version of the show to raise money for Heather's landmine charity - but host CHRIS TARRANT didn't think they would be good enough.

The former BEATLE and his campaigner wife bumped into Tarrant recently at a showbiz gathering.

McCartney says, "Heather, in her keenness, said, 'We should come on the Celebrity Millionaire show. I know all the answers Paul doesn't know and he knows all the ones I don't know.'

"Chris said, 'No, you shouldn't come on. You'd be terrible.' It was hilarious because you'd expect him to be really keen."
