Peter Walton has left fans baffled on social media by making a “proper weird” comment about his underwear live on BT Sport.
Walton, who spent nine years as a Premier League referee during his professional officiating career, enjoys a regular punditry role with BT Sport for top-flight matches.
But the 61-year-old will have a close eye on League One this weekend as an avid supporter of Northampton, who are facing the grim prospect of relegation while sat down in 22nd place.
BT Sport presenter Jules Breach shared a joke with him ahead of their crunch clash with Blackpool on Saturday by saying she was disappointed not to see him donning a full Northampton kit in the studio.
However, Walton then fired back with a bizarre response: “You’ve not seen my underwear have you?”
Fans were absolutely bemused about his remark, taking to social media to express their confusion.
One put on Twitter: “Peter Walton has just told Jules Breach to have a look at his underwear on BT Sport score, can't believe what i'm seeing”.
Another user said: “Peter Walton to Jules the presenter [said] you've not seen my underwear yet when she said I'm surprised your not in a Northampton kit followed by her forced laughter total cringe”.
A third wrote: “Peter Walton just told Jules to have a look at his underwear live on bt sport….. he's getting sacked”.
