Paul Sandford, landlord of The Railway Tavern, in Yaxham Road, Dereham, put up the stand so fans could gather and enjoy the tournament together.

The stand had already captured the imagination of the media, with Sky Sports News among channels to feature his creation.

But today, ITV's This Morning are planning to film at the pub and Mr Sandford appealed on Facebook for people to head down to help put Dereham on the map.

He said: 'Right folks, need a crowd for This Morning filming live at the Tavern from 9.30am in the morning. Please pop down and show your support. Help put Dereham on the map.'
