"I thought he was an a***hole the first time I met him and now I know he's definitely an a***hole," said Chloe as she departed from the evening.

The night club mogul has also appeared on Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion, where he hooked up with Geordie-shore star Chloe Ferry sparking months of rumours and speculation surrounding the couple's future, with one Instagram post even indicating the pair were getting engaged.

Wayne Lineker is brother to former England, Barcelona and Tottenham footballer Gary Lineker, 60, who is best known today for hosting weekly BBC football staple Match of the Day.

Wayne said in the past: "Gary is a very intelligent guy in a general knowledge kind of way, whereas I’m not. I’m savvy and streetwise."
