New MBE Jonathan Agnew revealed on Twitter he regularly receives soiled toilet paper from a critic through his letter box.

Bizarrely, football pundit Gary Lineker replied to say he has also been getting the same foul present from a sender based in Bath for almost 20 years.

Agnew, the BBC Test Match Special commentator, said he has been sent the dirty paper every Test match for the last decade.

Agnew, known by his fans and fellow pundits as 'Aggers', appeared more concerned that the sender now includes his new honour when addressing him.

Lineker replied: 'Let me guess; sent from a Bath postcode?', before revealing he had been getting them for 'donkey's years'.

He added: 'Goes back almost 20 years for me. Once a month. Disgusting.'

Agnew said the post always arrived second class, joking: 'Must cost him a fortune.'

BBC Radio 5 Live colleague Graham McMillan said he had also fallen foul of the disgusting hoaxer.
