It's the first time in 55 years that England have made it to a major tournament final, and just like the rest of us, celebrities are frantically trying to plan their Sunday viewing plans, as the big England versus Italy final beckons.

The Mirror has caught up with a selection of patriotic celebrities to hear what they're up to for the big game to inspire you if you're still working on plans of your own.

Here's where some of Britain's favourite TV faces will be yelling "It's Coming Home!" this Sunday at 8pm.

Love Island's Finn Tap and Callum Jones

Love Island 2020 winner Finn's message is simple: "I am buzzing!" he tells The Mirror.

"I will be making my way down south and meeting up with my pals to watch it over some beers. It’s coming home!"

Fellow winter 2020 series contestant Callum Jones isn't quite so organised. "I’ve not got anything planned as of yet," he tells us. "I didn’t anticipate getting to the final so everywhere is booked up of course!

"Hopefully will watch on a screen in a mates garden with all the lads. I can’t wait, it’s coming home… I don’t think I will be for a couple of days..!"

Sheldon, barber to England players Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham, says he'll be celebrating with his hairdresser colleagues this weekend.

"On Sunday I’ll be getting all my team together because we have worked so diligently to achieve all we have accomplished over the years," he says.

"We are committed to the country and the win. We are going to be watching the game together in our local bar and celebrating with our family members.

"It’s about enjoying these special moments with the ones you love and celebrating great victories. I feel England will win. My message to the team is simple: You have the drive, the skills, excellent management and great haircuts. Bring it home!"

Sheldon, also known as HD Cutz, is working with Panasonic Grooming on its Play with Style campaign.

Lisa Riley

Lisa Riley says her best birthday present will be England lifting the cup this weekend

Lisa's celebrating her 45th birthday shortly, and says an England win will be the best birthday present ever.

"I'm really making a full weekend of celebrations," she tells The Mirror.

"We love football in my family. I have the family coming over with all the children. In the morning we will go to a beautiful place for the kids with lots of activities and animals for them to look at.

"Then on the Sunday we are going out for a lovely early meal and then will be dashing back to watch the big game all together. The best birthday present for me would be for England to be lifting the cup on Sunday."

Emmerdale's Natalie Ann Jamieson

Natalie's excited to watch the match in Leeds this weekend.

"We're heading to a local pub with a huge garden and loads of screens," the actor tells us.

"I’ll be with a bunch of friends and neighbours and we all have work the next day so I’m mindful that if it actually comes home (and I’m sure it’s going to) we can’t celebrate as hard as we might like to!

"The pub has a BBQ on for the football and we can order that to our table, it’s an absolute dream! COME ON ENGLAND!"

Strictly's Neil Jones

Strictly professional dancer Neil is hoping tickets to the live match may come off, but if not he's hoping a local pub might have some space (erm, Neil, you might want to start begging for a booking now…)

"Tickets to watch the game at Wembley which would just be INCREDIBLE," he says, "so fingers crossed they come off. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity so if I can get in the stadium I will. The atmosphere will be electric, and a moment in history.

"I’ll be watching with my friend Swoosh from Flawless and if the tickets fall through then we’ll definitely be in a pub somewhere, amongst the crowds soaking up the atmosphere. I might even see if Giovanni [Pernice, fellow Strictly pro] wants to watch with us for some extra competition!

"I’m feeling really nervous about the match, we look great but Italy are really good too…I don’t want to jinx anything but I predict an England win…2-0!"

Absolutely Fabulous actor Helen has low alcohol beers and sausages on offer

Ab Fab's Catriona is making a real night of it at home, with plenty of cooking (although she's already drunk too much Cava…)

"I will be cooking my signature sausages in honey and mustard to lay out in front of the TV and plumping cushions for the arrival of three separate gentlemen friends who have been gathering to watch each England match in my sitting room," she tells The Mirror.

"They didn't know each other before – but didn't want to watch on their own, so I seem to have formed a new football support group. This time I will be handing out low alcohol beers as the England Denmark Match got us over excited with too much Cava.”

Nadia's taking things up a notch with a themed viewing party.

“I’ll be hosting a red and white themed party at home with close friends and family," she tells us.

"It’ll be the first time I’ve been able to properly host something in my new house and I can’t wait. There’s also a street party down my road which if, or when, we win will be absolute carnage! I’m excited for my little boy Ezekiel to experience this and see everyone in good spirits. I did try to get tickets to Wembley but they were going for a minimum of 6K!”
