      Leicester’s I’m A Celebrity star Owen Warner took part in a special celebrity football match in aid of a brave young cancer patient, Rio Spurr. The Hollyoaks actor appeared with X-Factor winner James Arthur and former TOWIE star Dan Osborne along with former Eastender Dean Gaffney at Altrincham Football Club.

      The event, which took place on Sunday, was in aid of little Rio, who has a rare form of cancer that has spread through his body. The four-year-old who loves to sing and dance started having unusual stomach pains and a lump was found.

      His parents, former Leeds Sheffield Wednesday star Thomas Spurr and his wife Chloe, brought him to A&E “knowing something wasn’t right”. On April 27 of last year, Rio’s family was told he had stage four cancer after a large tumor in his right kidney had spread to his lungs and a tumor had formed in both.

      “Our family’s world as we knew it was completely destroyed in that brief, heartbreaking conversation,” Chloe told YorkshireLive, with Rio said to be fighting valiantly against the disease.

      Treatment is expensive and Tommy, who is from Leeds, has quit his job to soon be with his poor man and his younger brother Rudy. Chloe has also put her beauty treatment business on hold.

      Also present was James Arthur, who was forced to deny rumors that he is one of the costumed singers on ITV’s The Masked Singer. Owen Warner was at the event to support him and posted a photo of him in action on his Instagram page. He said: “Quality game for a quality cause, thanks to everyone who came out to support little Rio.” His fans responded by praising him for participating.
