Pig that wrongly predicted England would make the World Cup final has been forced into hiding – after receiving death threats

A MYSTIC telly pig that wrongly tipped England for the World Cup finals is in ­hiding after death threats.

Marcus forecast earlier wins by picking apples with England flags, including our Colombia victory.

But when he goofed on ITV’s This Morning by backing skipper Harry Kane & Co to beat Croatia in the semis, fans tweeted: “The mystic pig must die.”

Owner Juliette Stevens, 50, feared the worst when he went missing last week.

He returned the next day. But she said: “He’s off to a new location to protect him. We’re taking no chances.

“We’ve got him fenced in with CCTV pointing at his paddock.”



Juliette, who runs a 22-acre farm in Heage, Derbys, reckons the eight-year-old was abducted and “has suspicions” by who — calling the ordeal “the worst hours of my life”.

Twitter fans hailed his return. Lisa Leech wrote: “Got to protect our ­national treasures.”

But after our 2-1 Croatia loss, This Morning’s Phillip Schofield tweeted: “Can I smell bacon?”

The show’s Twitter account had a bacon sandwich photo captioned: “We’ll just leave this here. #SorryMarcus.”
