Myleene Klass leans out of window to get closer look at huge crowd of Scottish football fans


England are set to take on Scotland in a crunch match at Wembley Stadium on Friday night in their latest Euros 2020 match.  

And as Scottish football fans were seen descending on London‘s Leicester Square ahead of the game, they soon turned their attentions to Myleene Klass who was looking out at all the action from her office window. 

The Classic FM presenter, 43 –  who was spotted getting a closer look at the huge crowds below from Global Studios, located in Leicester Square – revealed on her Instagram story that she soon became the subject of a crude chant.

At Global to record her latest radio show, Myleene was keen to see what all the commotion down on the ground was and she and a couple of others peered out from the window.  

Huge crowds of Scottish football fans were seen chanting and congregating in the square below, with Myleene sharing footage of the fans calling for her to ‘get her t**s out’. 

Panning her camera over the packed-out crowd in Leicester Square, she joked: ‘Didn’t see this one coming. “Get your tats out Myleene Klass”.’

Earlier videos posted by Myleene saw people playing the bagpipes in the crowd, with police officers present to keep an eye on the fans.

‘Leicester Sq – LOVE bagpipes,’ Myleene told her followers, before then admitting she was a little concerned at the large crowds standing outside in the torrential rain. 

She confessed: ‘The mum in me is worried about how cold and wet they’re all getting.’

Myleene’s videos come after hundreds of Scottish football fans headed to central London despite the Metropolitan Police issuing a 48-hour dispersal order on Thursday. 

It’s claimed 20,000 ticketless supporters descended on the capital, despite just 2,800 tickets being sold to Scotland fans for the game that will take place at Wembley Stadium at 8pm on Friday.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan had pleaded with Scottish supporters to ‘enjoy the game from Scotland’ and warned that an influx of crowds could cause ‘serious risk’ of spreading Covid-19.

As restrictions are still in place, Scotland Yard issued a Section 35 Dispersal Order until 3pm on Saturday, in anticipation of ‘anti-social behaviour’. 

The order gives a police constable and a police community support officer the power to exclude a person from an area for 48 hours with an Inspector’s authority. 

A Metropolitan Police spokesman tweeted on Thursday evening: ‘Due to the high profile UEFA EURO Football match between England & Scotland on Friday 18th June at 8pm and the anticipated anti-social behaviour this may bring, a section 35 dispersal authority has been implemented.

‘This has been authorised by Inspector Dodds from 1500 hours 17/06/21 till 1500 hours 19/06/21 in the West End area in an attempt to reduce the likelihood of members of the public being caused alarm harassment and distress and the occurrence of criminality in the local area.’  

The rule of six is still in force indoors and strict social distancing measures remain in place both inside and outside.

Friday’s crunch game between England and Scotland is the first clash between the two football teams in four years.

Myleene getting caught up in the chaos comes after she was seen launching a new campaign with St John Ambulance encouraging everyone to learn CPR. 

It’s a cause close to her heart as Myleene revealed she has had to perform CPR on her daughters in the past, at different times when they were choking. 

The former Hear’Say star used first aid on her oldest daughter Ava, 13, when she started choking on seafood during a holiday meal aged 10 and daughter Hero, now 10, after she choked on a plastic star when she was just one. 

‘I used first aid to save both my girls when they choked (at different times obvs, still horrific thinking about it),’ she told fans on Instagram.

‘My girls in turn, taught by @stjohn_ambulance, have used their skills to help an old man who had a bleeding head wound in the street, a lady who fainted on the tube and another on a plane.

‘It just gives you confidence knowing what to do, and you could save a life.’
