Fans think Ian Wright is wearing hospital gown for England Lionesses coverage

Ian Wright had social media in a tizz after turning up for the BBC's coverage the Women's Euros semi-final match between England and Sweden looking like he'd just come out of surgery.

The former Arsenal man was joined by Gabby Logan, Alex Scott and Jonas Eidevall in the studio at Bramall Lane for the Lionesses' biggest match since 2017, and drew all pre-match focus away from the game with his bonkers outfit.

On Twitter the jokes about his getup began flying left, right and centre, with some wondering whether he'd turned up for work wearing maternity clothes.

One fan tweeted: "What on Earth is Ian Wright wearing? A Hospital gown??"

A second wrote: "Ian Wright wearing what looks like a dyed maternity dress," while another joked: "Congratulations Ian Wright on your pregnancy."

In truth, Wright was wearing a pair of otherwise normal-looking trousers, though they were hidden by the punditry table, as the clip below – uploaded to the 58-year-old's Twitter page before kick-off – proves.

Entertainment on the gantry was followed swiftly by entertainment on the pitch as the Lionesses romped to a 4-0 victory over the Swedes to book their place in the European Championship final for the third time in their history.

Goals from Beth Mead, Lucy Bronze, Alessia Russo and Fran Kirby separated the two sides, with Russo's outrageous backheel the pick of the bunch.

England now face a nervous wait to see who they'll be facing in Sunday's final, with Germany and France set to do battle at Stadium MK on Wednesday night.
