John Barnes' fans are petitioning for his New Order collaboration 'World In Motion' to be the 2018 FIFA World Cup anthem.

The Jamaican-born former footballer - who has been popular on the current series of UK reality show 'Celebrity Big Brother' - lent his rapping talents to England's 1990 World Cup campaign with the popular 80s band, and now fans want him to pick up the microphone again.

A campaign has been launched on change.org for it to happen, as they feel the ex-Liverpool and Watford player could lift the spirits of the England team ahead of the Cup in Russia later this year.

Access is denied. England have qualified for Russia World Cup but good luck if you want to

A petition on change.org reads: "England need all the help they can get in the run up to Russia and this song would give the squad a reason to believe that this really could be the year. OK, maybe not.

"But it's a mint tune and the return of John Barnes at the mic would never be a bad thing.' (sic)"

The ESPN pundit, who got up on stage and performed it inside the 'CBB' house recently, hasn't said no, saying that it would be an easy task to re-record the tune as there aren't many lines to it.

The 54-year-old commentator told the Daily Star newspaper: "I've never forgotten the words.

"It's not that hard. There are only 20 words in it anyway."

'World In Motion' is still Manchester group New Order's only number one hit.

It comes after RedOne was tipped as a favourite to secure the official 2018 FIFA World Cup anthem this year.

Liverpool fans and John Barnes recreate ‘ World in Motion’ in tube singalong. World Cup song ‘to be re - recorded ’. Enduring football anthem World In Motion could be recorded once more - complete with a rap by soccer legend John Barnes .

With just Chris Waddle and John Barnes left to have a go the microphone was passed to Barnes first. Barnes stayed on time, was clear England’s performance in the World Cup did, of course, make a huge contribution to the sheer longevity of the song, still remixed, re - recorded and played whenever

The 45-year-old Moroccan-Swedish native, who was responsible for launching the career of Lady Gaga after producing her first hit 'Poker Face', has revealed he's already sent his song off to FIFA, who are once again organising the football games.

And that's not all, RedOne is also hoping to get Gaga herself to perform the song at the annual sporting event when it launches on June 14 at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow.

The producer - whose real name is Nadir Khayat - said: "I am in the running to do the official anthem but I don't know when that will be decided.

"I can't give you a name of the song because it becomes too complicated."

Getting a hold of the 'Million Reasons' hitmaker won't be a hard task, as he's already working with the 31-year-old pop megastar on a solo record, which will see him named as Boom Boom.

He said: "Gaga promised me that she'd do it. She's already recorded vocals for two songs.

"I'm just waiting for her to give me the OK.

"To be honest, she owes me a couple of songs."

RedOne will make it a hat-trick if he does land the gig, as he previously wrote the song 'Bamboo' for the World Cup in 2006 and Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull's 'We Are The One (Ole Ola) for Brazil in 2014.

Justin Bieber museum exhibition to open in Canadian hometown .
A museum exhibit dedicated to Justin Bieber's career is to open in his hometown of Stratford, Canada. The 'Steps to Stardom' exhibition at the Stratford Perth Museum on 18 February (18), not far from the steps of the city's Avon Theatre - where Justin began his music career by busking on the venue's steps. The items of Justin memorabilia that will go on display include a drum kit that belonged to the Sorry singer, 23, as a child, Grammy, Emmy and Teen Choice awards, his childhood ice hockey kit, microphones and personal letters, including one from Michelle Obama. Speaking to the Stratford Beacon Herald newspaper museum general manager John Kastner, who has put together the exhibition with help from Justin's grandparents Diane and Bruce Dale, said Justin was delighted his hometown was honouring him. "Wehad a very brief conversation with him here, and he was very appreciative - couldn't have been nicer," John revealed. "And just expressed how much he appreciated the fact that the museum was doing an exhibit." Explaining the significance of Stratford to the singer's career, museum general manager John added, "The steps of the Avon Theatre was probably the turning point (in his life), but for many people around here, they knew he was talented years before that.
