EastEnders star Jake Wood visited a Welwyn Garden City-based charity ahead of his celebrity boxing fundraiser later this year.
The actor from Tewin, who plays Max Branning in the BBC One show, popped into Isabel Hospice’s headquarters to update staff on his plans for Boxing With The Stars, an event he is organising to support the charity.
Jake was accompanied by former European boxing champion Spencer Oliver, who is co-organising the event.
Laura Pigott, community fundraiser for Isabel Hospice, said: “We were delighted to see Jake and Spencer. Both have personal connections with Isabel Hospice and want their new venture, Boxing With The Stars, to benefit Isabel Hospice.
“Having such famous faces visit the hospice caused a bit of a stir, and we were thrilled that they got to meet some of our fundraising team and one of our nursing support assistants.”
Other contestants set to take part include television personality Katie Price, Bianca Gascoigne from Celebrity Big Brother, footballer Wayne Bridge and Rogan O’Conner from Ex on the Beach.
Dan Osbourne from The Only Way is Essex and television chef Dean Edwards are also set to don the gloves.
The event is on October 13 in London and tickets are now on sale now.
