It's David versus Goliath when, after receiving some top tips from tennis Grand Slam winner Pat Cash and former British number one Tim Henman, Jamie, Fred and Jack take on legend John McEnroe in a match at the Royal Albert Hall - who do you reckon will shout "You cannot be serious" first?

Then, in honour of Lampard (who missed a penalty against pop squirt Justin Bieber in a friendly kickaround in 2011), Popstar Penalties makes a comeback, with Jamie fielding shots from 5th Story's Dane Bowers, Ultravox frontman Midge Ure and Steps favourite H.

The final challenge sees the teams tackle the Highland Games with multiple world champion Gregor Edmunds.
