Coronation Street star Alan Halsall head butts fireman in charity football match.

Sunday Mirror newspaper


A charity football match between celebrities and ­firefighters turned violent when Coronation Street's Alan ­Halsall HEAD-BUTTED an ­opponent.

Halsall, 27, who plays Tyrone Dobbs in the soap, had to be dragged from the pitch after he ­attacked fireman Kevin France, leaving him covered in blood.

The incident shocked the 1,000 ­spectators who had turned up to see the all-star team, which also ­included Michael Le Vell, 45 – Corrie's Kevin Webster – and Strictly Come Dancing's Ricky Whittle, 28.

One spectator said: “Everyone had turned up looking forward to seeing famous faces. But the atmosphere changed into something you'd expect outside a nightclub on a Friday night.

“Alan lost it when he was ­making a run towards goal and Kevin ran across to tackle him. He missed the ball and the referee gave a penalty to the All Stars.

“But after the tackle Alan jumped up in a rage and lunged at the player and head-butted him. Kevin went down like a pack of cards.

“He was crumpled in a heap and had blood all over his face. Alan had blood from a huge cut to his forehead and had to be dragged away.

“Nobody could believe what they were seeing.”

Organisers also put on a funday for children with cash raised going to radio station Key 103's Cash for Kids appeal.

Hollyoaks heart-throb Chris Fountain, 22, and TV star Ralf Little, 30, also lined up for the All Stars, who won 3-1 and helped raise thousands of pounds for the Fire ­Fighters' Charity in the game in Salford, Manchester, two weeks ago.

Kevin, 29, of Bolton, ­joked on Facebook: “I have a claim to fame now.”

A source at the ITV1 soap said: “Alan was mortified about what he'd done. But the pair of them shook hands after the game and went for a pint together. There were no hard ­feelings and both have agreed to play again next year.”
