“The reports from social media companies that they say they will get rid of it immediately are just rubbish. It hurts me like a mother that my children and children’s friends are watching it.”
Andy Peters added: “We’ve all persuaded our team – our team – to do well last month, so I didn’t realize it when I saw the show yesterday. [racial abuse] It was happening so I went online and took a look and actually saw it for the first time, I was very emotional.
“A 19-year-old boy who has done everything for his country can be abused online by people he doesn’t know. I pray he never sees what he did online yesterday. “

Susanna asked Ranveer in tears – which was also emotional – about her thoughts. Ranveer said: “This is England. Dexter’s England… “
Susanna agreed, adding: “And Marcus Rashford, and Tyrone Mings, Sancho and Saka, and each member of the squad.”
Still in tears, Ranveer added: “It goes to the heart of my children, my son has talked about the racism he faces … you think about it all the time. ۔

“Andy hangs out with him all the time. You can’t shake him. You can work like this when you’re working normally but stay there all the time.
“Now we need to take away that privilege and we all need to think about it, no matter how fast we move.”
