Mr Blobby to sing England national anthem v Ukraine

Should be a marked improvement.


Mr Blobby has been chosen to lead the England national anthem ahead of their game against Ukraine on Sunday.

The Football Association has confirmed that the former star of Noel’s House Party will also be the guest of honour at the Euro 2024 qualifier at Wembley.

An erractic performance of God Save The King by artist Ellynora was heard in Italy on Thursday night in the Three Lions’ 2-1 victory.

And FA officials have moved to ensure they’ll be no repeat of the shambolic rendition by drafting in former chart-topping performer Blobby.

Blobby is understood to have beaten off competition from Right Said Fred and Honey G to get the gig.

A spokesperson for the FA told Paddy Power News: “Having watched how the Italians massacred it last Thursday in Naples, we felt this was the only decision we could take.

“Blobby was someone we had in mind immediately, and the way he blasted out God Save The King at the audition left us in no doubt he was the right choice.”

Mr Blobby shot to fame in the early nineties on House Party and had a number one Christmas single in 1993.

A representative of the calamitous inflatable creature said: “We’re not surprised by the decision.

We always knew that Blobby would one day return to the summit of showbusiness

“There will not be any nerves as he is used to the big occasion.

“There’s no prouder Englishman, and having travelled all around the world watching the Three Lions, he considers it an honour to sing at a packed out Wembley.

“He’s also going to present Harry Kane with his gong for breaking the England goalscoring record before kick-off.”

Fans are understood to approve of the booking, with many believing Blobby will out-shine ‘the England band’ who follow the national side around the world.

When contacted for comment by PP News, Mr Blobby said in a brief statement:, “Blobby, Blobby.”

*Paddy Power’s breaking news coverage is 110% nonsense and that’s the truth. Honest.
