Watch top soap stars play football for charity

Soap stars from Coronation Street, Hollyoaks and Emmerdale have joined forces to play football for charity – and they may be playing near you!

Emmerdale’s Danny Miller and Kelvin Fletcher, Hollyoaks’ Anthony Quinlan and ex Corrie star Danny Young are part of M1 Charity FC, sponsored by Soaplife magazine, and are playing charity games to help raise money for Shannon Bradshaw Trust, a UK charity helping children with life-threatening conditions.

M1 Charity FC is aided by a raft of ex-professional footballers, including the former Valencia, Lazio and Middlesbrough midfielder maestro Gaizka Mendieta.

The team will travel around the country and play in a number of fixtures throughout a season which kicks off in May and ends in September, including a high-profile showdown against Derby County and Premiership Legends at Pride Park on Thursday, May 19.
