Chris Hughes is set to take part in a charity football match.

The 'Love Island' contestant has confirmed he will be taking part in the Bradley Lowery Celebrity Charity game, which will take part at Goodison Park in Liverpool on September 3, to celebrate the late Bradley Lowery.

The six-year-old - who was a supporter of Sunderland Football Club - tragically passed away in July this year after battling with neuroblastoma, which is a form of cancer that attacks the nerves system.

And to commemorate the youngster his family and the Bradley Lowery Foundation have teamed up with the celebrity football organisation, Sellebrity Soccer, to arrange the match, which will see proceeds from the game go towards the charity named after the child and the community centre named Everton In The Community.

Chris - who partnered up with Olivia Attwood in the popular ITV2 programme - will be joining Katie Price's team, which are named The Lowery Legends, to play for the winning title against boxer Tony Bellew's Bradley Blues.

And the hunk is honoured to be invited to play in the match.

Speaking about the upcoming sports event, the reality star said: "As a lifelong Sunderland fan, it is a massive honour to be asked to play in this match. Bradley touched the heart of every football fan up and down the country and brought the football world together during his brave fight. He will forever be fondly remembered by everyone."

And joining Chris next month will be 'The X Factor' contestant Sam Bailey, Frankie Fryer, 'EastEnders' actor Adam Woodyatt, former Blue singer Simon Webbe, as well as his band mates Lee Ryan and Antony Costa.

However, it is unknown what players will be signed up to which team yet.
