A HOST of celebrities and ex-sports stars have been lined up to take part in a charity football match in Potters Bar this weekend.

Former Big Brother contestants Sam Pepper, Mario Marconi and Victor Ebuwa, X Factor runner-up Andy Abraham and EastEnders actor Mo George are among the names taking part in a Celebrity All Stars team.
