Speaking to the former football manager from his home in Essex, Rod spoke of going to watch the British Home Championship match at Wembley Stadium with his dad.

Co-host, Dodge, asked the star: “Rod please tell me, is it true you were caught running on the pitch for the England-Scotland game back in 1977?”

The singer replied: “Yes, absolutely.”

Following Scotland beating England 2-1, fans swarmed the pitch to celebrate the win.

Rod said: “A pitch invasion happened, I asked my dad and he said don’t you dare.

“I said, ‘Dad, come on’, so we all went. But he stayed in his seat.

“I went down the front and had a hat on, and the coppers tried to stop me from getting on the pitch.”

Rod continued: “So I took my hat off and they went, ‘Oh it’s you, is it’, so they let me go on the pitch.

“All the supporters got me on their shoulders and lifted me up.”

But the Da Ya Think I’m Sexy singer revealed that while he was being carried by fans, his expensive watch was stolen.

“There’s a picture of it and I got my Cartier watch stolen,” he stated.

The podcast’s hosts gasped: “No!”

Rod said: “I did, yeah, and it turned up in Edinburgh about two months later.”

Although the rock legend didn’t say how much his bling was worth, Cartier mens’ watches start from £3,300 and can reach an eye-watering £58,000.

Despite being worth millions, five years ago Rod admitted that he ditched designer brands for good, in favour of high street bargains.

Speaking to Q magazine, the singer said: “I love Zara.

“There’s nothing wrong with the high street at all. I haven’t been into Dolce & Gabbana for donkey’s years.”

Just days ago Absolutely Fabulous star, Joanna Lumley, revealed details about her “20-minute” relationship with the rock star and claimed he recorded a song dedicated to her.

She said: “I went out with Rod Stewart for about 20 minutes, I suppose. No, it was a little bit longer than that.

“It was at that time when he still wore pink satin suits and drove a Lamborghini [car] and was glamourous.”

In a 2018 BBC interview, Joanna said: “He had got this track and he put it down and said, ‘This is for you.’”
