The annual charity event establishes who is the silkiest soccer star - we reckon Bowers should lay off the pies in preparation...

DAMON ALBARN, ANT & DEC, MICK HUCKNALL and DANE BOWERS are amongst the first stars to confirm their appearance at this year’s SOCCER 6 celebrity football tournament.

The charity event takes place at Stamford Bridge football ground, home of Chelsea FC, over the May Bank Holiday weekend (May 28).

Money raised will go towards Capital Radio’s ‘Help A London Child’ charity.

Other stars confirmed to appear at the event include Lee Latchford-Evans from Steps and Mark Owen, alongside ex-professional footballers Mickey Thomas (Manchester Utd), Terry Butcher (Rangers) and John Barnes (Liverpool).

More names will be added to the line-up as the date of the event, which in recent years has been won by teams featuring Robbie Williams, Fat Les and Blur, approaches.

Tickets, which are on sale now, are priced £15.
