The Northampton Saints and England player will play a ‘rugby hunk’ who will help a stranded John Paul McQueen (James Sutton) get home for his wedding to Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson).

The hour-long special will see Lockie (Nick Rhys) and JP stuck hours away from Chester and in desperate need to get back. The pair will enlist the help of a team of rugby players – headed up by Foden – to drive them back.
