Joining Coronation Street team captain Jack P Shepherd (David Platt) this time are Channique Sterling-Brown, (Dee-Dee Bailey), and Tony Maudsley (George Shuttleworth).

Against them, playing for Emmerdale, are Natalie Ann Jamieson (Amy Wyatt) and Kevin Mathurin (Charles Anderson) alongside their team captain Mark Charnock (Marlon Dingle).
