Today sees the start of the Celebrity Cup golf competition at the Celtic Manor.
Former Ryder Cup Captain Bernard Gallacher will be putting the celebrities through their paces in skills challenges which will also include special guest star, Jesse Metcalfe, of Desperate Housewives and Dallas fame.
The four captains hoping to lead their respective teams to victory are Rob Brydon (Wales), Mike Tindall (England), Keith Duffy (Ireland) and Gavin Hastings (Scotland).
Last year the event raised £65,000.
The action begins with a practice round today before the competition proper tees off with the first round robin matches over nine holes on Saturday morning.
Further matches take place on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning before the winners and team standings are decided in the final matches on Sunday afternoon.
