Soccer superstar David Beckham was lined up to rap on a song by New Order - but was dumped in favour of U.K. TV presenters ANT & DEC.
The Los Angeles Galaxy player agreed to provide the hip-hop style middle section in a re-recording of the British band's 1990 football anthem World In Motion.
The track would have been used as England's official World Cup song - but bosses at the U.K.'s Football Association (FA) stepped in at the last minute and ruled I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! presenters Anthony MCPartlin and Declan Donnelly should be used instead.
New Order bass player Peter Hook tells British radio station TalkSport, "I think for the last World Cup, (late music mogul) Tony (Wilson) lined up Beckham to do the rap and we were going to redo the song. But the FA then reconsidered it, saying 'No, no, no, we're going with Ant and Dec.'
"I would have thought that was a hell of a chance. I would have loved to have heard Beckham do a rap and he was up for it."
