Jamie Vardy set to bid for The Inbetweeners’ infamous yellow banger
FUN-loving footie ace Jamie Vardy is set to bid for The Inbetweeners’ infamous yellow banger.
The Leicester City and former England striker normally drives a £165,000 Bentley Continental GT.
But he is a big fan of the classic Channel 4 comedy — and its “football fwend” joke — and even calls mates from his hometown of Sheffield “The Inbetweeners.”
In the series the pals shouted “bus w*****s” at bus stop queues as they pottered past in the 1996 Fiat Cinquecento Hawaii, with a mismatched red door and rude bumper sticker.
It is up for auction in Bristol and has already had an offer of £5,500.
A source close to 34-year-old Jamie said: “He’s told his mates he wants to have it as a collector’s piece.”
Auctioneer Andrew Stow said: “It’s just so British. It’s an underdog — yet everyone wants a piece of it.”
