Such a sport! Pixie Lott tries her hand at football for charity match in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK… just a day after making her musical comeback

She’s usually known for showing off her vocal talents.
But Pixie Lott tried her hand at a very different career on Sunday as she donned a makeshift pair of football boots for a charity match in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK.
The singer, 26, certainly looked the part as she put her pins on display in a pair of knee high orange football socks and sporty shorts.
To complete her kit, Pixie wore a shirt emblazoned with her chosen charity’s logo and sported a captain’s armband on one arm.
And she made sure to inject a little glam into her athletic ensemble by wearing her blonde locks in voluminous curls as she took to the pitch.
Pixie appeared in high spirits after demonstrating her footballing skills as she mingled with other match-goers.
She had been joined by a slew of other celebrities including her Strictly co-stars Judy Murray and Frankie Bridge from the show’s 2014 series, I’m A Celebrity star Wayne Bridge and former Xtra Factor host Matt Richardson.
He shared a selfie with Pixie from the event and told his 28.4k followers: ‘Me and my lovely pal @pixielott after she made me play football.
‘I feel so sore. All for a good cause though @alzheimersresearchuk.’
Pixie had also been joined by her fiance Oliver Cheshire.
She and the model confirmed their engagement in November last year, after he popped the question at Madison Restaurant & Bar in front of St Paul’s cathedral as the sun set.
The pair have been dating for the last six years.
Gushing about the charity event that she had hosted, Pixie told fans on social media: ‘OMG amazing day playing football with my amazing friends.
‘ALL FOR @alzheimersresearchuk Nanny Ben would have been proud thank you so much to everybody who came down and donated!
‘Means loads to us as it’s a cause so close to our hearts xxx.’
She had organised the football game in order to raise donations for her Uncle who is running the London Marathon later this month in memory of Pixie’s nan.
Pixie’s pitch appearance came a day after she made her musical comeback on the live final of The Voice UK.
On Saturday, the starlet performed her new single Baby that features British DJ Anton Powers.
She took to the stage donning a skimpy pair of black hot pants with a sequinned top and thigh-high boots for her energetic performance on the show that later saw Jennifer Hudson’s act Mo Adeniran crowned the winner.
Pixie herself will be next to take to the famous spinning red chairs as she joins Danny Jones and will.i.am for The Voice Kids that will air this summer on ITV.
