The party today has been organised by the Greater London Authority (GLA), the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Westminster Council.

But it is not clear who decided to not hold a bus parade, with Westminster Council directing queries to the GLA. MailOnline has asked the GLA and DCMS for comment.

England’s players and their manager, Sarina Wiegman, will take part in a Q&A session before lifting the trophy today – with the event shown live on BBC One from 12.40pm.

FA chief executive Mark Bullingham said it was ‘only right’ that fans can celebrate the ‘historic victory’ together with the players at Trafalgar Square today.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he ‘can’t wait’ to see the team lift the trophy again in Trafalgar Square, adding: ‘They’ve broken records, and now they’ve made history.

And Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries said:

‘I’m delighted that we have worked quickly with the FA to put on a victory celebration in Trafalgar Square.’

Fans will be able to bring their own food and disposable or reusable water bottles – except glass – on site today, with free water refills also available.

The Lionesses beat Germany 2-1 in front of 87,000 supporters at Wembley Stadium yesterday, securing the first major tournament title for the country since 1966.

Number 10 said today that Boris Johnson will ‘definitely’ want the Lionesses to receive ‘the recognition they right deserve’ after England’s historic triumph.

Asked if the Prime Minister will back damehoods for the team following their win, his official spokesman said: ‘The Prime Minister would definitely want to see the team receive the recognition they rightly deserve for their historic victory.

‘On honours specifically, there is obviously a process that is a matter for the independent honours committee, but clearly the public want to see (the) Lionesses receive recognition.’

Unlike other successful sporting teams, the Lionesses will not be honoured with a visit to No 10 this week, because Mr Johnson is attending the funeral of Northern Ireland peace process architect Lord Trimble today and will be on holiday from Wednesday.

‘The Prime Minister is attending the funeral of Lord Trimble today which is why he is not able to join the celebrations,’

the spokesman said.

BBC in Euro 2022 sexism storm after Gary Lineker deletes his tweet joking about Chloe Kelly’s bra and all-male Kasabian play out broadcast of the Lionesses’ epic victory over Germany

The BBC and Gary Lineker have received an online backlash after the presenter made a ‘sexist’ bra joke and an all-male band were chosen to play over the Lionesses’ end montage.

The £1.36million-a-year Match of the Day presenter said in a now deleted tweet that

‘the Lionesses have only gone and done it, and Kelly is England’s heroine, bra none’,

beneath an image of match-winner Chloe Kelly.

One Twitter user said:

‘You’ve reduced a truly game changing moment for women and girls into a puerile sexist joke. Do you comment when male players take their shirts off? Is it any wonder people don’t take the women’s game seriously.’

Gary Lineker made a joke about Chloe Kelly's bra which has since been deleted on Twitter and edited on Instagram

Another described the former England footballer as ’embarrassing’ and told him ‘women did what you couldn’t and you reduce their victory to a bra joke’.

On Instagram, Lineker has amended the caption to be ’22 women chase a ball for 90 minutes and, at the end, England actually win. Congratulation Lionesses’ – but angry comments remain underneath.

One Instagram user said:

‘Not sure why her underwear is relevant though? #everdaysexism.’

Lineker also retweeted a post that someone had shared with him about Walkers crisps

Another said: ‘Look forward to you celebrating a male win by commenting on their jock straps. Outrageous.’

Lineker also retweeted a post yesterday that a fan had shared with him from Wembley about Walkers crisps, a brand for which he is a well-known ambassador.

Meanwhile the BBC has also received online criticism over their choice of all-male band Kasabian to play out the broadcast of the Lionesses’ win.

Twitter users described the BBC’s choice as ‘really weird’ and ‘an own goal’.

Twitter users criticised the BBC for failing to find an all-female band to play during the end montage which showed some of the Lionesses' greatest moments during the tournament

One user said: ‘Were there no female artists available to play the tournament out, BBC?’

Others described it as a ‘slow boring song’ and the BBC needed to ‘amplify awesome women musicians’.

Former front-man of the band, Tom Meighan, was found guilty of domestic abuse in 2020, when he hit his partner over the head and dragged her across the room.

Gary Lineker’s history of deleted tweets 

Gary Lineker has been hauled over the coals a number of times for his tweets. The presenter deleted a post last year about his BBC pay cut after volunteering to have it slashed by £400,000. He wrote: ‘Another one? Christ, nobody told me.’ He later deleted it.

Lineker also deleted a post in 2019 after taking a swipe at the New Zealand rugby haka. Ahead of a match against Canada, he wrote: ‘Must be hard not to just laugh at this if you’re the opposition.’

He removed it, adding:

‘I’ve deleted the tweet as it wasn’t intended that way in the slightest. I was just wondering why as an opposing sportsmen it would be in anyway intimidating after seeing it for so many years. I should probably have phrased it that way.’

When BBC Director-General Tim Davie took over the helm, he vowed to stamp out political tweets from its stars. Rather than welcome the move, Lineker mocked him, replying ‘nah’ in response to suggestions he should be ‘terrified’ of the clampdown.

As a freelance presenter Lineker has space to voice his opinions and has not been hamstrung by the BBC’s code of impartiality which restricts full-time workers. He is among a number of stars not bound by the social media rules.
