Striker Grant Holt - who is now playing at King's Lynn - and defender Russell Martin put their karaoke and baking skills to the test as they starred in Never Mind The Danger.

The show, hosted at OPEN in Norwich, had the City stars singing some of the classics including Bohemian Rhapsody, throwing fondant across the stage and taking on bizarre challenges.

Dreamt up jointly by Holt, who is a club ambassador, and Martin, the club captain, along with Radius Sport Marketing, the show aimed to show a 'different side' to the pair, along with some special guests.

Challenges already filmed include a mammoth 10-minute game of Jenga between the pair.

Darren Venn, managing director at Radius Sports Marketing said: 'We were delighted with the event, it went better than we could have imagined. The celebrity panel really enjoyed themselves and so did the audience considering the reaction over social media.'

Holt was joined by Norfolk's Wimbledon wheelchair tennis champion Alfie Hewett and Michelin starred chef Galton Blackiston. While Mr Martin was joined by BBC Radio Norfolk's Norwich City commentator Chris Goreham, alongside former Norfolk cricket captain George Walker.

Mr Venn added: 'The show will be returning to OPEN on December 11, as there is a clear desire for another one. Hosting the show at Open is great because it means we are able to help raise money for the charity as well as put on a great show.

'Clearly the audience loved seeing Grant Holt and Russell Martin sing, ice a cake, play Buckaroo and get involved in some amusing challenges with their fellow guest panellists. They also loved being involved in deciding who won the contest with their 'Team Russ/Team Grant' voting cards after each round.

'For the next show we will try and put in some more pieces, and with it being around Christmas you can expect some Christmassy fun.'

CEO of OPEN John Gordon-Saker said: 'With a format never seen before in Norwich, the audience left happy with plenty of opportunities to meet and interact with the stars of the show.'
