Inside Wayne Linekers 60th birthday celebrations after snub from brother Gary

Wayne Lineker marked his 60th birthday with a lavish pool party in Ibiza, where he was joined by a host of famous faces.

The dad-of-four, who is the younger brother of former footballer Gary, 61, threw a party at his beach club, O Beach Ibiza, where stars such as Tom Zanetti, Chloe Ferry and Calum Best all joined him.

Despite recently pleading with his older brother to attend his birthday party, Gary was nowhere to be seen at the sun-soaked bash.

Wayne shared a photograph of the pair on social media shortly before his big day, where he said he would "love" Gary to surprise him and turn up in Ibiza.

He wrote: "If there was one person in the world I would love to surprise me at my 60th birthday party next week @obeachibiza it would be this man."

Wayne then sadly added: "I don’t think it’s too difficult to work out we’re not as close as we were.”

While Gary failed to make it over to Spain, Wayne was still surrounded by pals as he celebrated his milestone birthday and he took to Instagram to document the star-studded party.

He and Tom, 32, could be seen posing together in front of the pool in one snap, with the DJ looking stylish in a Gucci shirt and sunglasses.

Wayne thanked his close friend, writing: "Thank you @tomzanettiz I will never forget #waynes60th".

He then took to his Stories to share snaps alongside reality TV star Calum Best, 41, and Love Islander Curtis Pritchard, 26, who could be seen excitedly dancing on stage.

Geordie Shore favourite Chloe, 26, cosied up to Wayne for a selfie, after she jetted off to Ibiza earlier on in the week to help her "bestie" celebrate his big day.

The following day Wayne made sure to thank all of his famous pals for attending his birthday bash, calling the day "beautiful" as all of his "best friends from across the world" had joined him in Ibiza.

He then headed to his bar Linekers to continue the celebrations.

The 60 year old was inundated with well wishes on his birthday, which falls on 25 April, with Vicky Pattison writing: "Happy birthday son don't look a day over 49".

Love Island star Amy Hart added: "Happy Birthday! Gutted couldn't come, have the best time!!! Xxxx".

Wayne and his brother Gary have drifted apart over recent years, with Wayne previously blaming the former footballer’s ex-wife, Danielle Bux.

In 2015, Wayne told The Sun: "In my opinion Danielle cost me my relationship with my brother. Sadly Gary is no longer a part of my life.

“Within a year we had spent less time talking than we ever had before. It was like an itch I couldn’t scratch and I couldn’t understand why our contact had fizzled out.”
