Three Norwich City players have featured in a BBC Three programme called ‘Football Stars in Bad Cars’.

City trio Kenny McLean, Todd Cantwell and Tim Krul took part in the programme where they were set a series of comedic challenges from BBC Radio One presenter Chris Stark.

With Cantwell behind the wheel of a tricked-out Fiat Multipa, they hit the streets of Norwich to show off their new wheels. Throughout the journey, they are tasked with a series of challenges to complete.

McLean was asked a series of questions about his fellow teammates, including 'who has the better looking girlfriend?' and 'who would you rather swap lives with?'. If McLean didn't answer in time, he would get splashed in the face with water.

The conversation then goes onto discuss Krul's taste in music, where City's shot-stopper reveals he is a fan of the late Swedish artist Avichii. Cantwell and McLean dance along to music in the car, but Krul doesn't join in.

The trio are then asked to detect who was behind a number of old tweets. A couple of Krul's former tweets including one that read 'stuck on airport' are exposed as Cantwell and McLean ridicule the Dutch 'keeper.

Upon being asked if he is a fan of fictional TV personality Alan Partridge, Krul responds: "No!"
