Celebrity Norwich City fan Jake Humphrey, who is covering the FA Cup final today, is praying for it to go to extra-time - so the Wigan players will be tired and more likely to lose their last two games.

The Canaries play West Brom at Carrow Road tomorrow and the former Hewett School pupil believes it's a 'must-win' game.

He said: 'Norwich have got themselves in a position where they have to win at least one of their last two games. And with Manchester City away the last game, tomorrow's game against West Brom is a must-win.

'Hopefully, if Wigan take Man City in the Cup Final to extra-time then they will be very tired, and will lose their last games.'

Mr Humphrey, who is the new frontman for BT Sport, which will be screening live Premier League matches next season, said his baby daughter Florence, who was born in March, was doing fine.
