Wright screamed: “No! Why are you showing this? I’m going, I’m not staying, get it off!”

Lineker was getting his own back, after footage of the presenter’s awkward dancing and singing in an England Euro 88 song during his playing days was also shown.

Wrighty, 57, wrote and released the single called Do The Right Thing in 1993, reaching No 43 in the UK singles chart.

“It’s not what this game is about, we saw all the lead-up, the suits is what it is about.
