With three weeks to go and preparations underway, organisers of charity football match Jamie’s Game 2 have high hopes that this year’s game will top the £60,000 raised last year.
The money collected will go to the Community Sports Foundation - and will be used to help those with disabilities or disadvantages get into sport.
Thirty-five film, music, television and sports stars have agreed to don their football boots for the match on May 25 at Carrow Road - but who are they?

The British actor - best known for his no nonsense roles and east London accent - will play captain for the day.
Danny’s TV credits include shows such as Channel 4’s Second Generation, Skins, The Real Football Factories and Danny Dyer’s Deadliest Men.
A new role in Eastenders means that Danny is now on our screens four nights a week.
Dan, who will take on the role of captain for the other team, is likely to prove popular with females in the audience.
The 22-year-old hearthrob shot to fame on ITV reality show The Only Way is Essex.
Dan also donned his swimming trunks to take part in the most recent series of Splash - where Olympic diver Tom Daly teaches celebrity contestants his tricks of the trade.
Although he is best known for his role as Robbie Jackson on Eastenders, Dean has also appeared on various reality TV shows over the last few years.
In 2006, he was a contestant on ITV’s I’m a Celebrity... Get Me out of Here! and in 2013, the actor took part in Let’s Dance for Comic Relief. Perhaps this fancy footwork will help Dean at Carrow Road.
Being back at Carrow Road will feel familiar for the Norwich City FC legend - who debuted for the club in 1993.
The Jamie’s Game organiser played for Norwich until December 1999, when he was sold to Leicester City FC.
The former winger was voted an inaugural member of the Norwich City Hall of Fame in 2002, which was established to celebrate the club’s centenary.
Eadie will be joined by other former Canaries Darren Huckerby, Iwan Roberts and Dean Ashton.
27-year-old Nathan is a Welsh professional boxer and former WBO light heavywight World Champion.
He is also the former European, British and Commonwealth light heavyweight champion - which makes him only the seventh Welshman to hold all three titles.
Most will know smooth-mover Ray for finishing second place on the X Factor in 2006, but it was on reality show Dancing on Ice that he shone, winning the 2009 series and the ‘All Stars’ series in 2014.
Ollie and James Phelps
Harry Potter fans will recognise these two as cheeky twin brothers Fred and George Weasley.
The duo - who have also appeared in TV series Kingdom and Mind’s Eye - have been heavily involved with the Harry Potter Exhibition, following its tour around different cities and countries to help promote it.
Crew member of popular Saturday-morning football talk and comedy show Soccer AM, Tubes - Peter Dale - has a regular feature on the show, where he asks ‘one question and one question only’ to one of the studio guests.
A public vote saw Tubes - who shows his questionable talent for rapping each week - voted more popular than crew member Rocket,
Mike will appear alongside Darren Everest - two of five-piece vocal harmony Group The Overtones.
They were discovered by a Warner Brothers talent scount while working as decorators singing during their tea break.
Their debut album Good Ol’ Fashioned Love initially entered the UK Albums Chart in number 16 in November 2010 - but a re-release in 2011 saw it shoot to number four.
Jamie’s Game 2 will come the day after another Sellebrity-organised event – a performance from UK pop band The Hoosiers at OPEN Norwich as part of their Tour From Nowhere.
Aiming to please football fans as well as music lovers, the Atlético Madrid v Real Madrid UEFA Champions League Final match will be broadcast on the big screen before the number one band perform live.
• The Hoosiers will perform at OPEN Norwich on Saturday, May 24. Doors open at 7pm.
