The 37-year-old said: “I was really excited to be asked to take part in this very moving film.

"I’m very keen on sports and once wished to play football professionally, so for me this campaign brings together many of my interests and passions.

"It’s tragic to think that climate change is damaging the parks and pitches where we love to play.”

Show The Love aims to encourage the UK Government to shift to clean and secure energy within a generation to safeguard lives and futures both in our own country and in developing countries.
