Gary Lineker has offered up his London home for migrants to live in after a Tory MP accused him of virtue signalling.
Yesterday MP Lee Anderson, slammed the Match of the Day host for discussing the record number of migrants who have arrived in the UK on boats this year.
Lineker responded by announcing online he had offered to house some through the charity Refugees At Home after being asked by one Twitter user about it.
It came after an interview with Talk Radio, where host Mike Graham asked Mr Anderson what he would say to people like Lineker, who ‘like to virtue signal on social media talking about how we should be a welcoming country’.
Mr Anderson joked the former professional footballer could email him his address ‘and I will make sure that’s available for the next boat of illegal immigrants to come and live in.’
Mr Lineker today revealed he has been in touch with charity Refugees at Home to offer to host a refugee or asylum seeker in his five-bedroom property.
