Congratulations to Peter and Steph on their wedding.

Congratulations are in order for Peter and Steph on their wedding this weekend.   

The former Leicester, Nottingham Forest and England goalkeeper announced his engagement to jazz singer Steph in April 2015.

England’s most capped player of all time with 125 appearances, Peter and Steph tied the knot at Ipswich’s Hintlesham Hall in a wonderful ceremony surrounded by the couple’s friends and family.       

The couple met in 2011 and are now looking forward to sharing a happy life together. 

 Amongst the guests attending the event were Derek Redmond, Gregg Wallace, Bill Roache OBE and John H Stracey.  

Peter Shilton joins forces with Vauxhall for #GetIN disguise prank video

Peter made a special visit to Wembley Stadium to play a prank on fellow footballing legends Graeme Le Saux and Ray Parlour, as well as players and fans who were at the match. Organised by Vauxhall, Peter was disguised as an overly officious groundsman who wound up the visitors until he revealed himself at the end of the match.

The viral video has already ratcheted up thousands of views and the response has been fantastic.

“I was made up to look like a bearded, long-haired groundsman,” said Peter. “I know Ray and Graeme very well so I was nervous as I thought they would recognise me straight away. I was also slightly concerned about my acting skills and having to change my voice. In the end, I had a whale of a time!

“It was something I had never tried before and not something generally I’m known for but I thoroughly enjoyed myself when I realised they hadn’t realised it was me! It was one of the funniest times I’ve had for quite some time.

“Everyone was absolutely shocked to find out it was me and the video has a great ending so I encourage everyone to take a look!”

Peter Shilton teams up with Chesney Hawkes and Rustlers for Euro 2016 song

To mark the start of Euro 2016, Peter joined forces with Rustlers to record a new song alongside pop star Chesney Hawkes. Best known for his number one smash hit ‘The One and Only’, Hawkes took on the main vocals while Peter starred in the spoken word section of the song, describing all the achievements that have made England great – other than the football!

The song, titled ‘The Realistic Anthem’, puts a twist on the usual optimistic football anthem and confronts England’s poor record in the European Championships while highlighting that our nation has a lot to celebrate away from football.  

“It was a very fun thing to do,” said Peter. “Rustlers came up with the concept and I looked at it and thought that it was something that I would love to get involved with. Chesney is a terrific singer and it’s a very catchy tune that puts a different spin on normal football anthems which I think is fantastic. While I’m the most fervent England fan, I also realise our record in the Euros hasn’t been great. I don’t have the best memories having played three games and losing every one!

“The song is saying that we have plenty to be proud of even if we suffer disappointment again. Looking at the first game, we should have won but conceded in the last minute so the song proved to be pretty apt! Let’s hope it can be a turning point and we do have something to celebrate at this year’s championship!”
