Gary Lineker set on fire in Walkers advert cock-up
MADONNA based her 30-year career on her sexiness, and it never did her fans any harm. It’s possible that without her controversial pop vids – like this one for Justify My Love in 1990 – she’d never have been as successful. Would the music world have been better without her? KYLIE MINOGUE’S Spinning Around video back in 2000 relaunched her career and became a national talking point for nearly a decade. It’s unlikely a hit would have quite such an impact if the Prime Minister’s plans had been in force. TERRIFIED Gary Lineker has revealed he was accidentally set on FIRE filming the latest Walkers crisps advert.
The Match Of The Day footy pundit has been the face of the brand since 1994 and has filmed more than 100 commercials for the company.
But Gary, 51, has revealed he was set ablaze while recording their latest ad campaign.
He said: “I’m literally baked in this one.
“There are smoke machines on me to make it look like I’m smoking, but unfortunately my jumper actually caught on fire.
“It was a bit of a scary moment but thankfully there was no lasting damage or burns.
“Being Gary Lineker is dangerous work, I do all my own stunts, you see!”
The telly fave also hit back at claims the TOWIE- style orange tan he sports in the advert is fake.
He added: “I’ve never sprayed myself in my life. It’s purely down to holidays.”
