Soccer Aid: Olly Murs and Olivia Colman star in funny sketch

Olly Murs was left disappointed as Olivia Colman declined his offer to join the England football team for annual charity game Soccer Aid against the Rest of the World at Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday.

Speaking via a video call, the captain, 36, attempted to persuade the award-winning actress, 46, to play in the match, but the screen star made it clear she'd only be interested in taking part in TV, theatre and film roles.

The Voice judge later reached out to will.i.am, Dolly Parton, Alan Carr, Alison Hammond and Rylan Clark-Neal, before settling with comedian Joel Dommett.

The funny sketch kicked off with the former X Factor star approaching manager Sam Allardyce, joined by fellow coach Wayne Rooney, for advice on who to recruit for the group.

Olly's description of the job clearly confused The Crown star Olivia, who believed she was signing up for an acting stint. 

'Do you have a script you can send me? I can research the striker and it can grow originally! Do you have Dame Judi on board?', the thespian asked, before the musician said: 'Just Mark Wright!'

An unimpressed Olivia boldly replied: 'I think I'll pass!'

The desperate artist later called host Alan, 44, and This Morning's Alison, 45, who said respectively: 'Yes, I will manage your England team. My dad used to manage Northampton footcball club... I'm talking about my singing career, not football!' 

Failing to find potential teammates, former Big Brother presenter Rylan, 31, added salt to the wound as he asked: 'I haven't got to wear one of them football shirts do I?, before American singer Dolly, 74, admitted: 'Sorry Olly, I'm working 9 to 5!'
