Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini gets massively upstaged by John Virgo

John Virgo Fellaini

Yep, you read that correctly, John Virgo is back and still proving that he's a massive name.

It must be pretty annoying when you're famous enough to have fans hounding your for an autograph everywhere you go, but it must be even more annoying if no one wants one.

So when Manchester United's midfielder/tree, Marouane Fellaini went to restaurant The China Lounge in Whitefield, he'll have expected to be the centre of attention.

However, things didn't quite turn out that way as the giant Belgian was massively upstaged by the legend that is....wait for it... John Virgo! 

Yep, the 1979 UK Snooker Champion and the brilliant MC of everyone's favourite snooker-based game show, Big Break – a staple of Saturday night viewing in the 90s.

While Fellaini was ignored, Virgo was swarmed by loads of adoring fans – one of whom talked to the Sun and told them: “It was hilarious. He couldn’t understand why everyone kept going up to this grey-haired bloke with a beard asking for a picture.

“In the end he actually asked John who he was and John just said, ‘Don’t worry Marouane, I’m not as famous as you!’”

Outstanding, we've got a lot of time for this, but we reckon that Fellaini won't be too pleased and will get torn apart in Manchester United training – hopefully they play the Big Break theme tune over and over.

Still, it's nice to see John Virgo is still a massive star and snookering you, snookering you tonight (BIG BREAK.)
