Skinner, who formed part of a track originally produced for Euro '96 alongside comedy partner David Baddiel and the Lightning Seeds, is delighted to be back under the brightest of spotlights.
World Cup fever in England will not extend to weddings round the country on Saturday with those tempted to glance at their mobile phones during the match with Sweden facing a red card.
