Footballers including Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand are being courted to take part in a new TV prank show for ITV1
Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Mario Balotelli are to take part in a new TV prank show.
The footballers will be one of a number of sports stars to be involved with the show 'Euro Wind Ups', where they will play pranks on other players in a 'You've Been Framed'-style show for ITV1.
The programme will be aired around the time England will be taking part in the European Championships in Poland and the Ukraine in June.
A TV source told The Sunday Mirror: "This has the potential to be absolutely massive. A good prank is part of the dressing-room culture in the British game, so footballers are than qualified to star in the show."
Producers are said to be working hard to make sure they have some of the biggest names in the game signed up to take part.
Rio, 33, is believed to be keen to take part after starring in 'Rio's World Cup Wind-Ups' in 2006.
