“Mum, where’s me Fireman Sam jimjams?”

BBC Radio 5 Live scored a massive coup this morning as they welcomed, not Jack Wilshere, but the two human beings responsible for his existence – the Arsenal midfielder’s parents Andrew and Kerry Wilshere – onto their breakfast show for an interview.

Before the start of the segment, the radio station posted a request for questions to ask the Wilsheres via their official Twitter account – asking listeners, followers and fans to submit any questions they would like to hear put to the couple.

They received but one submission, from a young Jack Wilshere – who took the opportunity to ask his Mum when his washing would be done as he is in dire need of clean pants for tomorrow’s game against Fulham…

So there you go, Jack Wilshere: officially a briefs man.
