X-Factor stars sign-up to Celebs match
24th March 2015
2005 X-Factor winner Shayne Ward has confirmed he is back for more at the Celebs Soccer match in May.
He'll be joined on the pitch by 2014 X-Factor contestant Stevi Ritchie who makes his debut at the charity football extravaganza.
Ward, who has reached the top of the charts on a number of occasions, was on Adam Woodyatt's winning side last season and he is delighted to return to the Liberty.
"I can't wait to get back playing at Liberty Stadium, I had such a great time last year," said Ward.
"I have been working on my new album, so I've been busy, but after being in the winning team last year I had to make sure I am back for more.
"Raising money for charity whilst playing at a Premier League stadium is an amazing experience, make sure you come out to join all the celebs. We will see you all there."
The pair will join fellow X-Factor stars Jake Quickenden, Sam Bailey and Jay James who have also signed-up to play in the match and help raise money for SwansAid.
Other stars from TV and sport, who will be playing include, former Team GB Olympic sprinter Jamie Baulch with Eastenders star Adam Woodyatt returning for a second year.
Last year's match attracted over 10,500 fans helping raise more than £55,000 for SwansAid which is spread throughout local charities.
