John Barnes fans have launched a campaign to bring back the 1990 track, following his performance on Celebrity Big Brother.

John Barnes' fans are petitioning for New Order's World In Motion to be England's anthem for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The Jamaican-born former footballer lent his rapping talents to England's 1990 World Cup campaign, and now - following his reprisal of the rap on Celebrity Big Brother - fans want to bring the song back again.

Watch John Barnes bring back his rap on CBB this week:

A petition on reads: "Let's be honest, England need all the help they can get in the run up to Russia 2018, and this song would give the squad and the fans a reason to believe that this could be the year...

"Ok maybe not, but it's a mint tune and the return of John Barnes at the mic would never be a bad thing, especially following his amazing Celebrity Big Brother performance."

Speaking about his iconic feature, ESPN pundit told The Daily Star: “I’ve never forgotten the words.

"It’s not that hard. There are only 20 words in it anyway.”
