The 'Dance With Me Tonight' star took part in the annual celebrity football match for charity over the weekend.

Olly Murs and JLS have thanks fans for helping them to raise over £4 million so far through their Soccer Aid charity football match yesterday (27 May).

The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer and JLS stars Aston Merrygold and Marvin Humes joined stars including Robbie Williams, Will Ferrell, Gerard Butler and John Bishop in the charity match, which took place yesterday at Manchester United's Old Trafford to raise money for the charity UNICEF.

"Thanks to everyone who got behind us tonight!!" Olly tweeted on Sunday evening. "For everyone who donated to UNICEF!! Amazing, we raised over 4million!! That's top stuff!!".

 "What a result! Support was amazing!" Marvin also posted. "3-1 to England! LOVE it! Thanks for the support!

"Great night…all for an amazing cause @UNICEF Marv x," the 'Take A Chance One Me' singer added.

The 'She Makes Me Wanna' singers got the chance to meet Hollywood actor Will Ferrell earlier in the week during training for the celebrity football match, and shared a picture for them hanging out with him with their fans. 

It was confirmed earlier this month that Olly Murs will return to co-host The Xtra Factor for a second series this summer.
