Frank Skinner hints at new Lightning Seeds World Cup song
Frank Skinner has hinted that he may hook up with The Lightning Seeds and former comedy partner David Baddiel to write a new World Cup song.

The team previously wrote the official England Euro 96 song, 'Three Lions', with Skinner now telling BBC Radio 5 Live at the Loaded Lafta Awards in London that he had the "urge" to get involved again.

"I think I might have a go at writing a new one with the other guys," he said, explaining that he had "suddenly got the urge" to write a new football song.

'Three Lions' was Number One in the UK charts both in 1996 and then in 1998, when it was re-recorded for the FIFA World Cup. The Football Association have announced that there will be no official England World Cup song this year.
