Luke Chadwick accepts Gary Lineker and Nick Hancock apologies after cruel BBC jokes over his looks as Man Utd kid – The Sun

FORMER Manchester United star Luke Chadwick has accepted apologies from Gary Lineker and Nick Hancock for cruel jibes about his looks.

The ex-footballer recently admitted gags about his appearance on BBC's They Think It's All Over killed his confidence.


It came at the time he was trying to make his mark at Premier League giants Manchester United.

Chadwick's revelations led to host of the hit 1990's show Hancock and team captain Lineker to issue grovelling apologies for their behaviour.

Former Spurs and England star Lineker responded on Twitter, saying: "I was part of that show, therefore, I too would like to apologise to @luke_FFF for any hurt caused"

And Hancock told BBC Breakfast: “Listening to Luke is incredibly humbling.

"He's shown so much more generosity and understanding and good judgement than we did at the time.

“I’m appalled for him and at myself."
