GARY Lineker’s sons celebrated the footie legend’s 60th birthday yesterday by ordering him a cake designed to look like a Walkers crisp packet.
The four lads clubbed together to get the former Three Lions striker a birthday cake that looked like a grab bag of salt and vinegar.

Gary has starred in the Walker’s Crisps TV adverts since 1994
And the bag was made to look like it was overflowing with crisps in a cheeky nod to the TV adverts in which he has appeared since 1994.
George, 28, Harry, 26, Tobias, 24, and Angus, 22, had the cake decorated with the words “Gaz Man” around the edge.
The crisp packet also had the logo of Gary’s BBC show Match of the Day next to it, as well as the shirts of two of his former clubs — Leicester City and Barcelona.
A delighted Gary put a snap of his treat online and wrote: “Thanks for sending this brilliant cake.”

“Yes, I’m very single, especially in lockdown. Even the sight of a female is very rare,” he said.
“But I’ve never been on a dating app and cannot ever visualise that happening. I’ve had lots of people sliding into my DMs but it’s normally requests for plugging their book or their charity.
“I’m nearly 60! Who’s going to slide into my DMs? My sons tell me that’s the way they date nowadays — but that’s fine, as they’re in their twenties. I can’t imagine it happening for me. It certainly hasn’t yet, anyway.”
