The 53-year-old comedian's new show, 'Lee Mack’s Road to Soccer Aid', will follow his journey as he tries to get in shape to play in the charity football match at Manchester City’s Eithad Stadium on September 4th.

Lee has missed three penalties in three consecutive 'Soccer Aid' games.

In the 60-minute programme, he will meet some famous friends and sporting legends during his journey who will help him try to achieve his dream of scoring a spot kick in the match.

Lee will also find out more about the lives that have been changed by the work of UNICEF.
