"Shout! Shout! Let it all out! .. Oh and don't forget to come and have a go if you think you're hard enough!"

Following the success of the unofficial World Cup song 'Shout for England', James Corden was all set to turn up as a surprise guest on Dizzee Rascal's Friday night Glastonbury set. But the appearance is under threat because of the possibility that England could be out of the competition by then.

An inside source told us, "Who'll want to sing an England supporter's song if England have a rubbish match and are on their way home? It doesn't matter if it's number one or not, or if it's for charity - it would be such a downer on Dizzee's show."

The single was Simon Cowell's idea, and combining comedian Corden with Rascal who attracts the young music audience, seems to have paid off. The song has topped the UK chart for two weeks and if the England team turn things around and go through to the next stage of the World Cup, James and Dizzee could bring the house down at Glastonbury.

But the possibility of an England failure, however distasteful, does leave a problem for Dizzee Rascal. If Corden doesn't go on, he will have a five minute gap in his playlist.

Favourite to fill it is Patrick Stewart, who has offered to come in full Star Trek garb and duet with Rascal on a pumped-up version of the Alphabet Love Song.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
