Star trio sign up for Celebrity Cup

Three new faces have been added to the star-studded roster of talent competing for the Celebrity Cup at Celtic Manor this summer.

Television stars Bradley Walsh and Philip Glenister plus former England cricketer Graeme Swann will tee up in the special golf tournament at Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales from July 4-6.

Former Coronation Street actor Walsh (main image) remains a regular on our small screens as lead character DS Ronnie Brooks in Law and Order: UK and as the presenter of ITV game show The Chase.

Best known as detective Gene Hunt in Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes, Glenister (above left) has just appeared in BBC1 drama From There To Here, in which he played the lead role of Daniel Cotton.

Spin bowler Swann (above right) will be relishing the prospect of pulling on an England shirt once again, having this winter ended an international career that included three Ashes triumphs over Australia.

Swann and Walsh join an England team led by Mike Tindall, a Rugby World Cup winner with England, which also features Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Peter Jones and model Jodie Kidd.

Other stars already announced for the 2014 Celebrity Cup include TV comics Rob Brydon and Brendan O’Carroll, Irish singing superstars Ronan Keating, Keith Duffy and Brian McFadden, and rugby legends Gareth Edwards, Gavin Hastings and Kenny Logan.

Thousands of golf fans and celebrity spotters flocked to Celtic Manor to enjoy the first ever Celebrity Cup last May. Britain’s most popular TV presenters, Ant and Dec, also dropped in for fun-filled skills challenges and they stayed on for a star-studded gala dinner which raised £65,000 for charity.

More stars are signing up to compete in teams of six for the event, which promises a full family day out with an interactive retail village and the opportunity to get up close to watch the celebrities in action.
