Go Gary!


Gary Lineker has proved he’s a man of his word by fulfilling his promise to present Match of the Day in his underwear after his beloved Leicester City won the Premiership.

The former footballer made the pledge waaay back in December last year, probably thinking that it had as much chance of happening as, say, Dermot O’Leary returning to The X Factor.

But, as Dermie has since proved, miracles can happen and Leicester went on to clinch the Premiership by a massive 10 points in May.

And as the new football season got underway this weekend, Gary delivered the goods, so to speak…

Sporting just a pair of white Leicester City shorts, the face of Walkers joked that ‘nothing much has changed’ as he opened this season’s first instalment of the show, with Alan Shearer and Ian Wright giggling in the background.

It appears that buff Gary – who split from his wife of seven years, Danielle Bux, in January – had a bout of stage fright just before the show, with the star tweeting: ‘This is strangely terrifying!’

But as soon as things got underway, he seemed to settle into his semi-naked status – although Alan and Ian couldn’t resist having a little dig.

‘I didn’t realise it was that cold in here, did you?’ former Newcastle United star Alan quipped, to which Ian replied: ‘I didn’t want to say.’

Twitter was delighted at the sight of the star in his smalls too…

But halfway through proceeds Gaz spoiled the fun, declaring to Alan and Ian: ‘I can’t bear you two looking at me like that. Enough of this nonsense – I’m going to go get dressed.’
