Omid Scobie rips into 'hot-headed' William in extraordinary interview: Author accuses Prince of being in 'heir mode' and driving rift with Harry - as he insists he's NOT on the Sussexes' payroll ahead of the release of his bombshell new book Hamas finally frees 20 prisoners after delaying release for hours: 13 Israelis and seven foreign nationals handed to Red Cross in exchange for 39 Palestinians - including '41 children and 11 women' A vote for Nigel Farage's lot would put Starmer in No 10, warns Rishi Sunak... but he admits he's 'too busy' to watch the former UKIP leader on I'm A Celeb

The three lions proved so popular that they reigned supreme on the English royal arms for over a century until Edward III added in some French lilies. But despite alterations and additions ever since, the three lions have always remained an integral part of the arms. Released today, the song changes the original lyrics from 1996 of '36 years of hurt' to '56', while the comedians also poke fun at the men's team with a reference to '20 weeks of hurt' in relation to the Lionesses' victorious Euro 2022 campaign over the summer.Why do Italy play in blue when their national flag does not contain this colour?" asks Kerry Gallant. A Colombia keeper involved in kidnapping, an Arsenal legend four times over the limit… and a Brazil star jailed for using a fake passport - as Dani Alves faces up to NINE YEARS in prison, here are the footballers who have spent times behind bars And the final piece of the treble? That came in 1994, when Aston Villa beat Manchester United 3-1 to win the Coca-Cola Cup - although Neil Penny swears blind that Mark Bosnich should have walked in the semi-finals and Tranmere should have been at Wembley instead.

Ding Dong Merrily on Sky…oh no it’s not on Sky…it has to be on terrestrial doesn’t it…for legal reasons… Immortalised by England's semi-final performance at home at Euro 96, the Three Lions anthem - and its iconic 'football's coming home' chorus - has serenaded most of the international footballs tournaments between then and now. The first one came from Henry I - known as the lion of England - who had a lion on his standard on taking power in 1100. Shortly afterwards he married Adeliza, whose father also had a lion on his shield, and to commemorate the event he added a second lion to his standard. In 1154, two lions became three when Henry II married Eleanor of Aquitaine, who - yes, you've guessed it - also had a lion her family crest.The original, which topped the charts along with the reworked Three Lions '98, has sold almost two million copies and has been streamed tens of millions of time. Fast foward to 1154 and marriage again increased the lion count; two lions turned into three following Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine's coupling, as she too had a lion on her family crest. Tax cuts are just the beginning! Rishi Sunak says last week's 2p off National Insurance is the 'start of a journey' now he's 'got inflation under control'

I love being gay, though I don't do it very much now': Out, proud and extremely loud, actress MIRIAM MARGOLYES, 82, is renowned for telling it as she sees it. She talks love and death... as well as laying off JK Rowling The Azzurri wear blue because it is the colour of Savoia, the ruling house of Italy from 1861 to 1946. When the Italian Republic was established in 1946, the tricolour was adopted as the national flag - however Italy's famous azure blue kit remained. The comedians insist they 'couldn't resist' to reunite with ‎The Lightning Seeds singer Ian Broudie to create a new version of the much-loved song first released in 1996 when England lost to Germany on penalties, again.
