England stars Jamie Vardy, Chris Smalling and legend Robbie Fowler have joined forces with TV presenter Reggie Yates to search for the ultimate #GetIN goal celebration ahead of the Three Lions’ EURO 2016 campaign this summer.
The football heroes swapped their football boots for scorecards as they teamed up with Vauxhall Motors to judge the auditioning English public in a football celebration version of Britain’s Got Talent. In true talent show fashion – the weird and wonderful acts ranged from the shocking, to the funny and the genuinely talented.
England football stars Jamie Vardy, Chris Smalling, and legend Robbie Fowler were talent show judges in Vauxhall’s search for England’s official #GetIN goal celebration.
Man of the moment Vardy gave his highest score to breakdancer Philip Mark Prescott, acknowledging the performance was “a bit of him” and confessing the Leicester City striker is partial to a breakdance move or two himself.
Whilst Manchester United’s Smalling gave martial arts contestant Mark Elliot more than he bargained for, demonstrating a floor-slamming Judo move on him at the end of his performance and revealing he was a former Judo champion himself.
Despite red cards from Vardy and Smalling, yodler Lynn Butler put a big smile on third and judge Fowler’s face with her bespoke song, written especially for the audition. Even admitting he would snap up her album if it were ever released.
Winning breakdancer Philip Mark Prescott won over all three judges with his head-spinning moves, scoring an impressive 26 out of 30. His unique celebration will now become the official #GetIN celebration for England this summer and will be performed at a live event by the talented winners.
Vardy; 29, said: “I thought lots of the acts were really talented.
“I used to actually watch all the break dancing competitions and the battle offs so I had a lot of time for Philip’s breakdance routine. Definitely a bit of me that.”
