Former EastEnders star Ross Kemp uploaded a video in the buff congratulating the England team on their latest 2018 World Cup win.
Gareth Southgate’s team broke the legendary England penalty shootout curse to claim victory against Columbia following a nail-biting extended two-hour match.
Taking to social media, Ross – who played hardman Grant Mitchell in the BBC soap – tweeted: “What a game, what an ending. Well done @England,” followed by the hashtags “ENGvCOL,” “England vs Colombia,” and “Three Lions”.
Wanting to further vocalise his delight to his 147k followers, Ross, 53, shared a short clip again congratulating Harry Kane and the rest of the squad, plus, offer his congratulations as they continue their campaign in Russia.
Seen shirtless with some giant sunflowers in the background, Ross enthused: “You will never know what that means to me.”
Suddenly adopting a more serious tone, he rather aggressively adds: “That is everything, everything. We love you, boys. We f**king love you.”

Ross wasn’t the only celebrity to send his congrats as England marked their first knockout victory in a World Cup for 12 years, and only their seventh in any major tournament since back in 1996.
Prince William, who is also the president of the FA, used the micro-blogging site to give his approval from the official Kensington Palace Twitter handle.
The Duke of Cambridge, 36, tweeted: “I couldn’t be prouder of @england – a victory in a penalty shootout!
You have well and truly earned your place in the final eight of the World Cup and you should know the whole country is right behind you for Saturday!”
Kate Middleton’s husband finished his statement, “Come on England! W.”
England are now into the final eight and will next play Sweden on Saturday 7 July. Bookmakers William Hill currently have England as second favourites to win the World Cup at 7/2 behind Brazil who have odds of 11/4.
