Piers Morgan and Peter Crouch will go head-to-head on Friday afternoon at the Paddy Power Pro-Am event in Hertfordshire.

The event from the bookmakers Paddy Power is to celebrate the imminent return of sport that was stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There will be eight events taking place between the hours of 12pm and 5.45pm, which will see 10 celebrities, including Morgan and Crouch, face each other in an attempt to be crowned champion of the massive event.

It’s not the first time the journalist and ex-professional footballer have challenged each other, as we date back to 2018.

Morgan, who is an avid and vocal (on Twitter) Arsenal supporter, lost a bet with Crouch, who used to play for Tottenham Hotspur, over the winner of the Carabao Cup quarter-final.

The loser of the bet would have to wear the opposition team’s shirt when presenting the semi-final draw after the game.

So, the Good Morning Britain host was forced to wear Tottenham’s home shirt from that season, much to his disgust.

The Gunners were beaten by Spurs 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium thanks to goals from Dele Alli and Son Heung-min.

This came as a big surprise, especially to Morgan, who had just seen his beloved club “thrash” their arch-rivals 4-2 just a couple of weeks prior to the cup tie.

“It was a total disaster from start to finish,” Morgan said live on Sky Sports’ Carabao Cup semi-final draw.

“I thought after the Premier League thrashing we gave them here it would be a walkover. We didn’t turn up.”

Morgan accepted his defeat graciously, and kindly donated £1,000 to a charity of the Crouch’s choice.

The pair will battle it out to become the Pro-Am winner on Friday, but will face stern competition from eight other sport stars, past and present.

Jamie Redknapp and Harry Kane are two footballers gunning for glory at the event, while Tommy Fleetwood, Thomas Bjorn, Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston, Carly Booth and Paul McGinley are five past and present golfers, who surely have to be considered favourites.

Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff completes the competitors, and he has proven in the past he is a versatile sportsman.

The Paddy Power golf shootout tees off at 12pm on Friday, June 6, with all the action set to be streamed on the Paddy Power Twitter account and YouTube channel.
