Danny Dyer, John Terry and stars of Love Island are set to join Calum Best for a charity football match at Windsor Park in April.

Television personality Best (38), son of legendary Northern Ireland and Manchester United player George Best, is one of the driving forces behind the 'My Tribute’ game, which is due to be played on Sunday, April 14 at the stadium with a 3pm kick-off.

Best, who says the match will be a tribute to his late father, will captain one of the celebrity teams.

Their opposition will have actor Jake Wood, best-known for roles in EastEnders, Only Fools and Horses and Red Dwarf, as their skipper.

Ex-England and Chelsea captain John Terry is also confirmed for the match, as is ex-Hull City, Wigan and current Soccer AM presenter Jimmy Bullard.

Other celebrities taking part include EastEnders stars Danny Dyer and Dean Gaffney, James Argent of The Only Way Is Essex fame and Dan Osborne, who also starred in TOWIE, as well as Celebrity Big Brother.

Also out on the pitch will be Love Island stars Jack Fowler, Josh Denzel and Sam Gowland – Sam also appeared in Geordie Shore - along with English rapper, actor, television personality and former non-league footballer MC Harvey.

F2 Freestylers – freestyle football duo Jeremy Lynch and Billy Wingrove – have confirmed they will be taking part and Warren Phillips, who was on our TV screens in Survival Of The Fittest last year, has also agreed to play at Windsor.

Sellebrity Soccer, which specialises in staging celebrity football matches across the UK to raise thousands of pounds for charity, is organising the game in association with the Irish FA.

Tickets for the My Tribute celebrity football match will cost £10 per adult and £5 per child – plus booking fee.
