Ben will play a "rugby hunk", who helps a stranded John Paul McQueen (James Sutton) get home for his wedding to Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson).

A synopsis reads: "When John Paul and Lockie get stranded in a remote setting hours from home and need to get back to Chester in time for the wedding, they enlist the help of a team of rugby players who drive them back, including 'rugby hunk', Ben Foden."

Ben, who filmed his scenes on location in Liverpool last month, plays as a fullback for Northampton Saints.

In September, Ben and Una announced they are expecting their second child together. The couple married in 2012 and are already parents to two-year-old daughter Aoife Belle.

Ben can be seen during Hollyoaks' Christmas Eve episode (24 December) on Channel 4.
