Catherine Vs Michael

They're the picture of wedded Hollywood bliss but things could get very messy out on the green for Mr and Mrs Douglas.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are rolling up the sleeves of their Pringle jumpers in preparation for an all-out golf war in Sky One's All Star Cup.

Cinema's golden couple, who have long enjoyed sharing 18 holes during their marriage, have been selected for opposing sides for a new celebrity version of the Ryder Cup.

Catherine will be one of the A-list faces in Team Europe while Michael will be hoping for success on Team USA at South Wales' Celtic Manor Resort at the end of August.

The contest, thought up by the inseperable Ant and Dec, sees 25 celebrities including Gavin Henson, Jodie Kidd, Boris Becker, Rob Lowe and Ronan Keating battle for golfing honours in front of Sky One's TV cameras.

Jamie Theakston, Kirsty Gallacher and Terry Wogan will provide the commentary for the two-day event starting on August 28.

Colin Montgomerie will be selecting the European side from a squad of 13, while Mark O'Meara heads up the USA picking process - choosing from 12 American amateurs.

"There will be plenty of talent on the course and competition is likely to be fierce," a producer of the show said. "Make no mistake, both Europe and the US are playing to win."

Good job the Douglases signed that pre-nup...

Catch  the event on Sky One over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
