It is also strongly rumoured Catherine Zeta-Jones and hubby Michael Douglas will make an appearance at the Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales.

Jodie, who has a handicap of 18, said: "I will take it very seriously. I seem to do very male-dominated sports so I feel quite comfortable on that level. I am naturally very competitive and I love golf."

Media mogul Chris, with a handicap of 15, admitted he was nervous. "They're not going to be showing our best shots, are they, let's face it." He added it would get "embarrassingly competitive".

Jamie Theakston and Kirsty Gallacher will host the event.
