Twitter spat over Kirsty's drink rap.

The ex-husband of TV host Kirsty Gallacher has laid into football pundit Ian Wright for comforting her after her drink-drive shame.

Paul Sampson was fuming after Wrighty's tweet for Kirsty who got a two-year driving ban.

In it, Arsenal legend Wright seemed to suggest Kirsty, 41, was harshly treated because she was a woman and not a footballer - such as Everton's Wayne Rooney who faces court over a drink-drive allegation.

Wright, who hosted Sky's Gladiators with Kirsty, tweeted: "Love you @ TheRealKirstyG hang in sis we all make mistakes Some of theis so unfair You would be forgiven if you were a man or footballer."

Ex-England and Wasps rugby player Paul, 40, replied: "Wow Wrighty Forgiven if you were a man or a footballerAnd by who" ??

In another message, in which he tagged in Kirsty, he wrote: "So you're forgiving it because 1. f'ballers get forgiven 2. and man 3. And because your world revolves around sport? Haha." The messages have been deleted.

Sky Sports presenter Kirsty was three times the drink-drive limit when stopped by police in Eton, Berkshire, last month at 11am. She was going to pick up her two children for a day out at Windsor Castle.

Kirsty, of Virginia Water, Surrey, admitted the charge at Slough Magistrates Court and was also ordered to do 100 hours' community service and pay an PS85 fine.
