Gary Neville has taken a trip back to his Bury roots as part of filming for the Overlap on Tour.

Jamie Carragher, Roy Keane and Gary Neville paid a visit to the borough yesterday, stopping in at Stephen St Chippery, Whitehead Park and Neville's old home as part of filming for The Overlap on Tour.

The series will air on Sky and follwing the legendary footballers on a tour across the UK and Ireland. It airs on June 14.

Neville took the two football pundits to the house he grew up in for 11 years of his life, adding that he wishes he could “go back in time for a day and experience it all again.”

In an Instagram post, he said: “So today I went back to my foots for the Overlap on Tour.

“This is the house I grew up in for the first 11 years of my life.

“To go inside it again was a great thing to do and meet Lorraine who lives there now.

“The fireplace in the front room is still the same. Oh if you could go back in time for a day to experience it again.

“It would be so good.”

The trio took photos with staff at Stephen Street Chippery before crossing onto Whitehead Park to enjoy their lunches. 

Some residents were quick to spot the stars tucking into their chips on a park bench, however, a couple said they were gutted to have missed them with another adding they walked the dog right past where they were sat and didn’t even notice.
