Ben Foden has been confirmed to appear on a celebrity TV talent show ‘BBC One Christmas special All Together Now Celebrities’.
The 33-year-old rugby player is randomly singing on the show, which will be hosted by Spice Girl Geri Halliwell.
Ben, who is not a professional singer, recently moved to the US to pursue a new rugby career, following a very public split from Una Healy earlier this summer.
Following the spilt, he took some time to ‘reflect as well as do some different things and experiences’ which he spoke about in an Instagram post about his new journey.

Had some time away from the game, been able to get away reflect as well as do some different things and experiences. But the time has finally come to dust off the old boots and get back in the fight. First training session marked in for the 8th of November and I can’t wait to get over to the states and get fully stuck in. Big change for me, a even bigger challenge with it being @rugbyunitedny first year in the MLR and we want to start with a bang. #RUNY #MLR #America #rugbyisbranchingout
The rugby star has come under fire for the breakup, as it was reported he cheated on wife Una with a PR girl.
After their split, Ben was then spotted on Bumble where he revealed in his bio that the pair were getting divorced.
Ben will join a number famous faces in the new BBC show, where they will sing for a panel of 100 judges.
Other celebs lined up for the show include The Only Only Way Is Essex star Gemma Collins, footballer turned pundit Chris Kamara and This Morning’s Alison Hammond.
