Matt Yeo, who is marrying Sophie Wood - whom he says had to take a lot of convincing to accommodate those guests who are football fans as she is not one - has ordered a satellite dish for the post-ceremony reception.

Skinner, who formed part of a track originally produced for Euro '96 alongside comedy partner David Baddiel and the Lightning Seeds, is delighted to be back under the brightest of spotlights.

Altogether now...."It's Coming Home!" And that is entirely thanks to "Three Lions".

The song, which has gripped the nation, flew up 32 places following England's shoot-out victory against Colombia and their 2-0 win against Sweden. It was later re-released for the 1998 World Cup.

Even England's players have got in on the act, with Manchester United attacker Jesse Lingard sharing the contents of his phone conversation with his mother.

Brand wrote: "Henry V & Gareth Southgate - A Homage to England".

Jason West, 35-year-old football fan got the famous lyric "Football's coming home" tattooed onto his bum after his friend told him he would never do it.

England are once again daring to belief that "football's coming home", with "Three Lions" star Frank Skinner delighted to see his song from 1996 inspiring the class of 2018. This time, England are going The Full Monty...

From countless memes on social media to 'Three Lions (Football's Coming Home)' topping the United Kingdom iTunes chart, the words "It's Coming Home" have been a staple part of England's celebrations.

Green Day's 2008 hit single American Idiot could also be in line for a return to the chart following an online campaign to get it to number one in the week that US President Donald Trump makes his first state visit to the United Kingdom on Friday. The team broke the curse of losing penalty shootouts by winning 4-3.
