GOGGLEBOX star Tom Malone is excited to be playing a celebrity football match.

The 26-year-old has teamed up with other TV celebrities and actors to play a game at Witton Albion Football Club at 2pm on Sunday, November 14.

The players are raising funds for a charity set up in memory of Matilda Cosgrove from Northwich, who was tragically stillborn in June last year.

Her parents Mark, 41, and Stacie, 33, have vowed to buy presents for children spending Christmas in Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

Tom said: "I can't wait. It's always fun in these games and it's a good group to play with. Should be a really good day."

Choreographer Tom appeared in the popular Channel 4 series for six years, sitting on the sofa with his family as they shared their reactions to the most watched TV shows.

The Tik Tok star quit the show earlier this year to pursue new opportunities, but loves taking part in fundraising events.

"It's always good to give back and if we can raise money to support an amazing charity then I'm always up for it."

Asked how he rates his football skills, Tom said: "It depends which day you see me play. If I'm honest I'm either pretty good or terrible and there's no in between.

"I always want to win and I think it makes for a better match when both sides are competitive.

"But at the end of the day it doesn't matter whether we win or lose, as long as we've supported a good cause then it's all worth it."

Tom will be playing with James Argent and Dan Osborne from The Only Way is Essex, Love Island stars Josh Ritchie and Luke Trotman from Love Island, James Hill, from Celebrity Big Brother and Joe Sealey from Cheshire Housewives.

Matt Lapinskas from Dancing On Ice, Ali Hamidi from ITV Carp Fishing, Nev Wilshire from BBC Call Centre and actors Dean Gaffney and Danny Hatchard will also be in the Sellebrity XI team.

The stars will be taking on a team from the Matilda Foundation.

"We want to bring some joy and happiness through our sadness," said Mark, from Northwich.

"It's brilliant that we have so many big names giving up their time to play for us."

Nev Wilshire, from BBC Call Centre, said: "I'm thrilled to support the charity in any way I possible.

"Seeing as the Sellebrity soccer boys are playing an existing team it's important we put in a good performance.

"I hope we have some of our best players available so I can spend more time n the bench to give us the best chance of victory.

"I've been playing football competitively for a long time.

"I represented Wales at under 18s in 1976 and played semi professional in the league of Wales until I was 36 and played amateur for another six years.

"So I'm too old to be any good these days. But what I lack in speed and physical prowess I'll make up for with enthusiasm.

"I look forward to meeting everyone at the game, it's going to be a great day and a memorable occasion."
