FAMOUS Greenock actor Martin Compston will swap his Line of Duty waistcoat for a football strip after signing up for this year's Soccer Aid.

He is reclaiming his position in the Soccer Aid World XI squad in the annual event, which sees celebrities and ex-professional footballers join forces in aid of Unicef.

Martin, who stars as DS Steve Arnott in the Jed Mercurio drama, will play alongside Usain Bolt, singer Niall Horan and former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

Love Island star Kem Cetinay and freestyle footballer Billy Wingrove are also in the line-up.

They will face the England squad, currently made up of Olympic champion runner Sir Mo Farah, former footballer Jamie Redknapp, TV presenters Ben Shephard and Mark Wright, fitness expert Joe Wicks, and Jeremy Lynch, who is in a freestyle football duo with Wingrove.

Compston, who played in his first Soccer Aid for Unicef match in 2014, said: "I want to win.

"To a Scotsman seeing those three lions on a shirt is like a red rag to a bull.

"Losing on penalties last year really was a sore one.

"Having Didier Drogba back on his home turf at Stamford Bridge I'm sure is going to help us lift the trophy this year."

The World XI team will be overseen by I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! winner Harry Redknapp and broadcaster Piers Morgan.

The England squad is being co-managed by Sam Allardyce and Morgan's Good Morning Britain co-host, Susanna Reid.

Soccer Aid for Unicef was co-founded by Robbie Williams and Jonathan Wilkes in 2006 and this year's clash on June 16 will be broadcast live on STV.
