Not everyone is cut out for the life of a football – as both Stephen Graham and Jack Whitehall proved in their cameos on the final Soccer AM.
The Liverpudlian acting legend and comedian Whitehall were among the celebrity guests for the final airing of the Saturday staple. And the cameras hadn't even started rolling before both were seen clutching ice packs to help soothe the pain.
Graham – star of hits like This Is England, Line of Duty and Boiling Point – had his perched high up on his right quad, while Whitehall appeared to have tweaked a groin. As it turned out, the pair had each pulled muscles warming up with a ball just prior to filming.

It's a sign of their commitment to the cause that both celebrities wanted to be fully prepared for any possibility of a kickabout. Famous guests traditionally take a punt in the 'Road to Wembley' challenge, which sees contestants attempt to send the ball through a hole in the bumper-size Wembley sign.
The show started as it meant to carry on, with pre-production injuries just the beginning of the on-set chaos.

Hosts Fenners and Jimmy Bullard had to tell off their guests for a host of early expletives, with the audio being cut out on several occasions. Whitehall in particular refused to fall in line despite those requests, leaving the presenters and other crew in stitches.
The comedian was also rebuked for cracking one particularly dark joke about him receiving the royal honours "they stripped off [the recently deceased] Rolf [Harris]."
Grime artist Stormzy was also among the celebrity attendees appearing on the final show. The British rap icon has appeared on the show in the past but made sure to return for its send-off.
Unlike Graham and Whitehall, who pulled out of doing some shooting drills outside, Stormzy managed to prove his fitness by avoiding injury on-set.
