The famous faces play regular matches around the country to raise funds for their ‘Once Upon A Smile’ charity.

That is an organisation which provides emotional and practical support for bereaved families.

Sponsored by Total Tots Day Nursery, it kicks off at 3pm with the celebrities in action against a team of Morecambe legends.

Before then, starting from 1pm, there will be a family funday with bouncy castle, face-painting and entertainment.

Admission will cost from £8 for adults and £4 for children.

Before the game, we sat down with Roche to ask him about his memories of the last 10 years with Morecambe.
