The 30-year-old said: "I'm excited, I'm ready and raring to go.

"It's looking like it's going to be a really good turnout. I've got a lot of friends coming down and stuff so it’s going to be a really fun family day out.

"I've managed to do three or four kick-ups in preparation for the big day so I'm hoping those will come in handy. Whoever's on my team is going to be the winning team!
