A documentary showing comedian Lee Mack’s attempts to get into shape for the Soccer Aid charity football match is to air on ITV.

Lee Mack’s Road To Soccer Aid will also follow him as he tries to improve his footballing technique after missing three penalties in three previous Soccer Aid matches.

He will be joined in the fundraising match by former Olympic champion sprinter Usain Bolt, television presenter Paddy McGuinness and former footballers Wayne Rooney, Gary Neville, Roberto Carlos and Jamie Redknapp.

The 10th anniversary edition of Soccer Aid, which raises money for Unicef, will take place at Manchester City’s Eithad Stadium on September 4.

The 60-minute special documentary will see Mack meet “some famous friends, experts and sporting legends to help him achieve his dreams”, according to a statement.

It will also “explore how children around the world have benefitted from the generosity of the Soccer Aid audience as Lee finds out more about the lives that have been changed by the extraordinary work of Unicef”.

ITV will also air On Yer Bike For Soccer Aid during the week of Soccer Aid.

The programme is hosted by former cricketer Freddie Flintoff, who will be joined by ex-Olympic cycling champion Sir Bradley Wiggins and eight celebrities as they undertake a two-wheeled challenge.

ITV shows This Morning, Loose Women, Martin And Roman Weekend Best and James Martin’s Saturday Morning will also support this year’s Soccer Aid with special programming.
