Celebrities have reacted to the “tight” Euro 2020 game between England and Scotland.

A number of famous faces including Lorraine Kelly, Melanie C, Piers Morgan and Iain Stirling were at Wembley to watch the two home nations play out a goalless draw in the group stage match.

Journalist and television presenter Piers Morgan criticised England’s performance after the derby.

He tweeted: “Bottom line: Scotland wanted it more than England & played with more fire, intensity, passion and drive.

“You can’t teach footballers those qualities. It’s about hunger & heart.”

During the game he also shared a video on Twitter from his son Spencer, who was sitting near him in the stadium.

Alongside the clip, which showed Morgan standing in the crowd with his arms aloft, Spencer wrote: “They will let literally anyone in here.”

Scottish television presenter Kelly also attended the game with singer Melanie C.

Kelly tweeted: “25 yrs since @England v @ScotlandNT met at EURO 96.

“What a game and loving the passion from the fans! @MelanieCmusic and I so proud of our teams.”

After the game Melanie C, who was supporting England, tweeted: “Well done Scotland , you played brilliantly. England, you could do better. Great to share the points and enjoy the banter with @reallorraine.”

Love Island presenter Stirling was also at Wembley to watch the game.
