GARY Lineker is back in the studio about to hit TV screens again for the first time after his chaotic Tweet row.

The former football star has tweeted a picture with teammates Alan Shearer and Micah Richards as he prepares to commentate on live coverage of the FA Cup quarter-final between Manchester City and Burnley on the BBC.

While he makes his appearance Mark Chapman has taken over Match Of The Day hosting duties.

It has also been reported the 62-year-old is yet to confirm his role presenting the BBC’s Champions League coverage when it kicks off next year.

This comes as rival, BT Sport, is said to be targeting Lineker for their TNT Sports next season, according to Mail Online.

The BBC’s highest-paid presenter, on £1.35million a year, is returning to TV after being suspended from his Match of the Day presenting duties following criticism of Suella Braverman’s migrant boats plan.

The former Barcelona striker took to Twitter to hit out at the Illegal Migration Bill, which bans people who arrive on small boats from settling in Britain.

He wrote: “This is just an immeasurably cruel policy directed at the most vulnerable people in language that is not dissimilar to that used by Germany in the ’30s, and I’m out of order?”

The bill will see migrants detained and removed to their home country, or a safe third state within 28 days.

Today saw the arrival of the Home Secretary in Rwanda, to meet with President Paul Kagame and her counterpart Vincent Biruta, to discuss the plan.

Lineker’s words were considered in breach of the BBC’s strict impartiality rules which state that staff must avoid taking sides on political controversies.

In a statement, the BBC previously said it had “decided that he will step back from presenting Match of the Day until we’ve got an agreed and clear position on his use of social media.”

Lineker’s co-hosts on the show, Ian Wright and Alan Shearer also stepped back from the show in support if their colleague.

Ultimately Lineker’s return was announced as he agreed to abide by existing guidelines and welcomed a new independent review into BBC stars’ use of social media.

“I am glad we have found a way forward. I support this review and look forward to getting back on air”, he said.

Since the controversy exploded, the BBC have also come under fire for their handling of the situation.

BBC director-general Tim Davie, who made the call to suspend Lineker, faced an embarrassing climbdown just 72 hours later when he reversed the decision.

Mr Davie said in a statement the corporation has commissioned an independent review of its social media guidelines and apologised for the impartiality row.

He described the BBC’s commitment to freedom of expression and impartiality as a “difficult balancing act”.

“The potential confusion caused by the grey areas of the BBC’s social media guidance that was introduced in 2020 is recognised. I want to get matters resolved and our sport content back on air”, he added.
