The conundrum was first posed at Glastonbury festival last year when a huge flag went viral.

It was plain white, with black lettering, and simply said: 'Gary Lineker shags crisps' - all in capitals for the world to see.

The young fella got the tattoo after originally agreeing to get it done if Southampton beat Manchester United in a match, however, after a fair few of pints he decided to get it done anyway.

Joe himself wasn't planning to tell his parents about the tattoo until it had been removed, and called it the 'stupidest thing' he'd ever done.

So, viral it has gone - it's been brought back up in Gary Lineker's recent interview with OK! Magazine. He said: "There was a big banner at Glastonbury once saying, 'Gary Linker shags crisps'."
