James Corden is the latest celebrity to back Blackpool fans in their battle against the Oyston family.

The television star, who currently hosts the Late Late Show in America, has turned to social media to support a planned march through Blackpool this weekend.

More than a thousand supporters are expected to protest ahead of Saturday’s game against Wigan, dubbed Judgement Day 2.

It’s a follow-up to last season’s action which ended with Pool’s game against Huddersfield being abandoned after a pitch invasion.

And Corden last night tweeted to his 6.7m followers in support of the march, saying: “I fully support this,” before posting a picture of a flyer marking out the route.

Fans will march from the Stanley Arms Pub on Church Street through the town from 10:30am before arriving at Bloomfield Road ahead of a 12:30pm kick-off.
