The well-known faces will be cheered on by passionate fans at Manchester United’s iconic Old Trafford Stadium.

However, one well known face won't be there this year. TOWIE star Mark Wright has revealed he will skip this year's sporting event.

In last year’s match, England lost out to World XI on penalties at the London stadium. An estimated £15 million was raised for the worthy cause.

This year, a number of celebrities are donning their football gear including Lioness star and I’m A Celebrity winner Jill Scott, who is back on the pitch.
