 Best, who says the match will be a tribute to his late father,will captain one of the celebrity teams, while their opposition will have the actor Jake Wood as their skipper. Wood is best known for roles in EastEnders, Only Fools And Horses and Red Dwarf.

F2 Freestylers – freestyle football duo Jeremy Lynch and Billy Wingrove – have confirmed they will be putting in an appearance, while Warren Phillips, who was on our TV screens in Survival Of The Fittest last year, has also agreed to be there.
