Cheeky funnyman comedic cockney actor James Corden, who starred in 'Lesbian Vampire Killers' with that bloke off the Catherine Tate show, last night denied emphatically that he wanted to fight BBC presenter and ex-golden boot winner Gary Lineker. In a cage.
"That's just rubbish, and totally untrue," Corden's belly fluff removal technician told us. "Why would he want to fight Gary Lineker in a cage?"
Corden, currently presenting a TV World Cup show and avoiding Liam Gallagher out of Oasis, sparked controversy last week when he clashed with follically challenged Star Trek actor Patrick Stewart at yet another pointless awards ceremony.
But it seems that a cage fight with former England star Gary Lineker isn't on his agenda.
A source told us:
"This is just ridiculous. Do you make these stories up or what? James is a devout England fan who reveres every England player. He once described David Beckham as the most beautiful man he's ever met. He gets on quite well with Rio Ferdinand and he has a shrine to World Cup hat-trick hero Geoff Hurst in his garden shed. Why on earth would he want to fight Gary Lineker in a cage? This is just too bloody stupid for words. Be off with you."
A second source confided that if Corden can't fight Gary Lineker in a cage, he'd take on Ryan Giggs in an unlicensed boxing contest in Bethnal Green. Because Giggs is Welsh. Even though he represented England at schoolboy level. When we told Ryan Giggs, he just shook his head and laughed.
More as we get it.
