England football star John Barnes is to re-record his chart-topping rap 20 years on.

The memorable but rather wince-inducing performance was the centrepiece of the 1990 England World Cup anthem World In Motion.

Barnes will re-enact the rap in a new advert for Mars, which will be filmed next week.

The track, recorded by New Order under the name Englandneworder, has been given a new lease of life in recent years after being performed by James Corden on BBC One comedy Gavin And Stacey.

Mars will also be changing its packaging from black to white to reflect the England strip this summer.

Fans are being offered the chance to take part in the video with more details at www.marsbar.co.uk.

World In Motion reached No 1 and was New Order's only chart-topping single.
