A former Liverpool striker and two television and film stars are on Saturday's Soccer AM.

Ex-Liverpool, West Ham, Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End forward Neil Mellor will be the footballing face joining Helen and Max on the couch this weekend.

Mellor scored 72 career goals before being forced to retire in 2012 and a most memorable long-range strike for Liverpool in the 2004 win over Arsenal.

The 31-year-old will lift the lid on his career and discuss his battle with injuries, successful spell with Preston, North End's chances of winning promotion to the Championship this year and of course, Liverpool's title hopes and clash with Aston Villa, which is live on Sky Sports this Saturday.

Also joining the gang will be star of hit TV shows Heroes, Merlin, Dexter and new BBC 1 drama The Muskateers, Santiago Cabrera.

His new offering hits the screens this weekend with Cabrera filling the boots of Aramis from the famous trio in this much-anticipated series.

We'll be sure to ask him about his semi-pro footballer days, when the Venezuelan-born actor played for top-level non-league side Hampton & Richmond.

Our third guest on the orange couch will former My Family man and huge Aston Villa fan Kris Marshall.

He played Colin, the guy who got very, very lucky, in hit romcom Love Actually but now Marshall is starring in BBC detective series Death in Paradise as new Detective Inspector Humphrey Goodman.
