"This really was a wicked experience, for an unbelievable event and a really important, urgent and selfless cause, there are so many unsung heroes behind this. Thank you."

Showing her support, Dianne commented on the post: "What a star," along with a series of emojis.

Bobby played on the England squad alongside names including Paddy McGuinness and Tom Hiddleston. The World XI team included Tommy Fury and Roman Kemp.

The game was won by the England team for the first time since 2018. The match also featured the first goal from a female player, with Ellen White scoring in the 30th minute.

Meanwhile, Dianne recently announced that she had become an aunt after her brother Andrew had welcomed a baby boy, Roman Giuseppe, with his wife Melissa.
