It started when George and Gary took issue with a tweet from Laurence’s Reclaim party criticizing the government’s Homes for Ukraine programme.

Reclaim Party deputy leader Martin Daubney had tweeted: “When @BorisJohnson @GaryLineker and @YvetteCooperMP welcome a refugee, the rest of us can follow.”

However, Gary was quick to point out that he once shared his home with a refugee two years ago, tweeting: “You probably should have picked a different name.” I went first…and second…..and will continue to host. If any of you would like to do the same, @RefugeesAtHome is amazing. ‘

George chimed in to add: ‘Find out yourselves well, lad’.

Laurence fired back at George saying: ‘His facts are right’ mate ‘Just because you, like me, grew up with all the privileges in the world, doesn’t mean you have the privilege of lecturing hard workers on virtue signal.

“Leave that to your father. He has a profile, at least. Run.

Match of the day host Gary fired back: ‘You should have done the same and left it to your dad’.

Laurence is the son of James Fox, an acclaimed English actor, while his cousin is actress Emilia Fox.

Laurence then revealed that Gary blocked him on Twitter after the argument.

Last year he said he could pull his children out of school over his opposition to the Covid vaccination programme.

He said he would educate them at home rather than letting them get vaccinated without his consent.

He shares custody of his boys with Billie Piper, whom he divorced in 2016.

Laurence recently got engaged to prep school teacher Arabella Fleetwood Neagle, 28.

Arabella is apparently supporting his political campaign as she was pictured alongside him on the top deck of his Reclaim party’s battle bus during his failed bid to become mayor of London last year.
