Comedian James Corden is about to get up close and personal with David Beckham.

Corden – in character as Gavin And Stacey’s Smithy – will give the soccer icon a massage for charity. And Beckham will return the favor afterwards – in a sketch to be broadcast in March on BBC One’s Sport Relief.

“The sketch is hilarious, they couldn’t be more different – the pair of them massaging each other will be a sight to behold,” a source told The Sun.

This is the second time Corden and Beckham have appeared together, last year they were featured in a Comic Relief skit where Smithy gate-crashed an England football team meeting and gave the players a pep talk.

Corden is also filming sketches with other sport celebrities such as Formula 1 champ Jenson Button, cricketer Andrew Flintoff, tennis ace Andy Murray and diver Tom Dale.

Sport Relief is a biennial charity event from Comic Relief, in association with BBC Sport, which brings together the worlds of sport and entertainment to raise money to help vulnerable people in both the UK and the world’s poorest countries.
