Walkers flavour: salty.


Ex-international footballer, friendly telly personality and yer man off the Walkers ads.

Among all the quality lines delivered, there is one person who’s a consistent target of Lineker’s comebacks: Piers Morgan.

And there’s only ever one winner:

1. Like that time Piers tried to slag him about being a “goal-hanger”

2. Gary keeps a keen eye on Piers’ career

3. And has the perfect comeback when he tries to boast
