Indeed, the group were put through their paces by Heskey back in July with some basic warm-up exercises followed by a game of five a side.

The former Leicester City, Liverpool and Aston Villa player will also feature in a second game between ex-pros and male celebrities following some half-time entertainment.

The event follows the One Goal Foundation Ball in 2012, when Chantelle helped raise money for leukaemia and lymphoma research after close friend and Heskey’s former Villa team-mate Stiliyan Petrov was diagnosed with leukaemia earlier that year.
