Usually all eyes are on the pitch at stadium:mk, but while Bowditch & Co. give their dribbling a rest, punters will flock to the grand venue and eye up the stars instead.

The annual Collectormania feast returns to the round this weekend, and organisers have assembled a cute cast to take attentions.

And there are some big, big names among the listings, including X-Files star Gillian Anderson, Dr Who assistants Billie Piper (past) and Jenna-Louise Coleman (present), and the ever-so-suave Charles Dance.

If the scary, scary is more your sort of thing, you’ll want to get acquainted with Lou ‘The Hulk’ Ferrigno and Malcolm McDowell who starred in the mindbending, psychedelic crime thriller, A Clockwork Orange.

And if you think they are a tad scary, forget it – Ken Kirzinger from Freddy Vs Jason is one scarier...at least behind the mask, he is!

The great thing about Collectormania is that the stars are really there to see you too – you can meet, greet and get your photo snapped with your most desired, and with somewhere in the region of 75 stars turning out between Saturday and Monday, there is plenty of choice.

Actors from the Bafta winning Game of Thrones will show up, including Lily’s brother Alfie Allen, and sporting fans can sate their appetite with boxers Joe Calzaghe and Frank Bruno, racing driver Stirling Moss and footballers Jimmy Greaves and Gordon Banks among the guestlist.

Guests aside, and film and TV fans will be able to let the plastic take the strain at the many memorabilia stalls selling unusual, rare and quirky goods - from posters to film props and everything inbetween.

Admission is free, but charges will be made for autographs and photos.

Not all guests will be appearing all days.
