Lineker had been taken off the show for a few days after tweeting that the government’s language about immigration was “not dissimilar” to language used in 1930s Germany.

Madeley accused Lineker of comparing the government to the Nazis.

Lineker responded, stating that Madeley had misrepresented his words and attributed it to a Daily Mail headline that caused the initial uproar.

He clarified that he did not compare the government to the Nazis but rather commented on the similarity in language used.

Lineker emphasized that his intention was to advocate for the use of kinder language.

Reflecting on the situation that resulted in his temporary absence from television, Lineker described it as a disproportionate and bewildering story.
