Football ace Kyle Walker is facing ‘fury’ from his wife while police have seized CCTV footage as they investigate his alleged flashing offence.
The £150,000-a-week England star was seen apparently pulling down his trousers in a venue, understood to be Revolution in Wilmslow, Cheshire, during 90 minutes of alleged lewd behaviour on Sunday.
Two officers have interviewed bar staff close to where Walker is alleged to have exposed himself and he may soon be questioned under caution, The Sun reports.
The star’s long-suffering wife Annie, 30, is said to have branded her husband a ‘d***’ after learning about the allegations through the media.
The mother-of-three has stood by Walker through past sex scandals but is said to be weighing up her options after the latest ‘humiliation’.

A source said: ‘She’s terrified of a police investigation and if that happened she would surely feel like she had to chuck him out. At the moment that hasn’t happened.
‘She’s worried about what others will be saying and thinking about her and is mortified for their kids.’
The offence of indecent exposure carries a maximum two=year jail term, but Walker could also be accused of outraging a public a decency – a common law offence with an unlimited fine and jail term.
To probe the latter offence, officers would need evidence that two or more people were close by when the ‘lewd, obscene or disgusting’ act took place, irrespective of whether or not they saw it take place.
Cheshire Police has told media that the investigation is at an early stage and no arrests have been made.
Walker was due to hold talks with Manchester City today about renewing his contract into June 2024 but the club has now abandoned these talks.

A source claimed Walker was more concerned about the effect on his career prospects than the notion of going to court.
They said: ‘He appears to not be concerned about the embarrassment this has caused his family, the club and their fans. What he appears really worried about is whether this will damages his chances for a contract extension.
‘That’s the problem right there. It demonstrates a complete contempt of what he’s done and the rules the rest of us have to abide by.’
It follows a series of tabloid headlines over the years after misdemeanors.
In 2013, Walker has issued a grovelling apology after embarrassing the England team by inhaling the legal but potentially deadly ‘hippy crack’ drug through a balloon.
The Tottenham defender was in Kiev ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine, but later woke to a photograph of himself in a Sunday newspaper sucking in the substance nitrous oxide on a recent night out in Sheffield.

In 2020, he again attracted headlines when it was revealed he hosted a sex party with two escorts while the country was in a coronavirus lockdown.
The footballer, 29, and a friend, paid £2,200 for Louise McNamara, 21, and a 24-year-old Brazilian call girl to visit his Cheshire home.
And last year, he found himself in a spat with ex-partner Lauren Goodyear, with whom he shares a three-year-old son called Kairo.
The exes welcomed him in April 2020 after conceiving the youngster during a short relationship amid Kyle’s temporary split from his longtime girlfriend, Annie Kilner who he secretly married late last year.
Meanwhile, Walker, 31, was substituted off during Man City’s Champions League semi-final clash against Real Madrid last night which saw Pep Guardiola’s side capitulate 6-5 on aggregate.
Kyle Walker’s wife Annie Kilner shared a pointed message on her Instagram after the Man City star’s latest dalliance.
Not long afterwards, on Monday evening, Ms Kilner shared a post with her thousands of followers which read: ‘I think it’s important to remember that no matter how good you are to people, it won’t make them good to you.’
The model, 30, shares three children with Walker, who she first met when they were both in their teams.
Cheshire Police today confirmed it is investigating Walker for alleged indecent exposure – but MailOnline understands that Manchester City believe Walker has not broken any club rules and deem it a private matter. Kyle is training as usual before the Premier League champions travel to face Crystal Palace in London on Saturday.

Footage appears to show Walker pulling down his trousers and flashing friends, including a woman
A police spokesman said: ‘On Wednesday March 8, Cheshire police were made aware of a video circulating on social media in relation to an indecent exposure which allegedly occurred in the Wilmslow area.
‘Enquiries in relation to the incident are in the early stages and no arrests have been made at this time.’
Mr Walker is married to Annie Kilner, 30, and the couple have three children together. The Sun reports that the woman he appears to touch on the breasts and kiss is not his wife because the woman in the CCTV is blonde and Ms Kilner has brown hair.
The footage emerged today, International Women’s Day, and has sparked anger from Women’s Aid. Teresa Parker, from the women’s rights group, said: ‘Whether done to shock, for a so-called laugh, or to intimidate, for those affected by indecent exposure there can be long-term effects, upset and trauma.
‘It can give the person exposing themselves a sense of power in the situation. And if there are no repercussions, it possibly gives them the confidence to see what they can get away with next time.’
MailOnline has asked Manchester City, Mr Walker’s agent and Greater Manchester Police to comment.
The Sun last night published footage of the incidents.
The Manchester City defender, 32, appears to grind behind the woman while at the Manchester venue, which he arrived at with male friends at 5.20pm on Sunday after they had some drinks.
Revellers on a night out were reportedly shocked by the horrific behaviour which went on for around 90 minutes until 7pm.
Walker reported on time for Manchester City training on Tuesday morning before controversial footage of a night out hit the headlines.
City’s players were given two days off following the weekend victory over Newcastle United, with many of the squad travelling abroad for short breaks.
Walker remained in the North West and was back in training with Pep Guardiola’s squad before they travel to face Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The drunken footballer appeared to drop his tracksuit bottoms and revealing himself near drinkers in the bar in footage seen by the Sun.
In response, one of the two women in his group screamed and pointed as Walker laughed with a friend.
The England and Man City football star then appears to expose himself again after just a few minutes – and only a few feet away from two other women sitting in a booth at the bar, according to the Sun’s report.
He is then said to have walked over to shake their hands and say hello.
More video of the night seems to show him ‘pawing’ at one of his female friends’ breasts and kissing her. His wife was not in any of the footage seen by the Sun.
Walker’s alleged behaviour came a day after his and Man City’s 2-0 victory against Newcastle United on Saturday.
The footballer – who earns £150,000 per week – was noticeably drunk when he turned up at the Manchester bar with two blonde women and male friends at around 5.20pm on Sunday in a minibus run by the firm that Man City use.

Walker was wearing a puffer jacket and a cap and reportedly appeared unsteady on his feet as he staggered to the entrance of the bar with one of the women. He appeared to then paw at her breasts from behind.
He spent around an hour and a half drinking and dancing with his friends before leaving in the minibus just before 7pm.
But Walker was then called back to the bar to pay the £250 tab. When he arrived a barman reportedly was there with a card machine as the footballer clumsily handled his wallet.
While Walker could say the flashing was a joke police may wish to probe him for indecent exposure, which can land offenders a maximum two-year prison sentence.
A source told the Sun that the video was ‘really disturbing’ and ‘deeply concerning’.
The Sexual Offences Act 2003 says that indecent exposure is when a person intentionally exposes their genitals – and that they intend for it to be seen which could cause alarm or distress.
The common law offence of outraging public decency is committed when a person does a ‘lewd, obscene or disgusting’ act while at least two members of the public are present.
Walker had previously been dumped by ex-glamour Annie after an alleged string of romps with reality TV star, Laura Brown, 30 – but they got back together in 2019.
But he was dumped again in 2020 after model Lauryn Goodman said that she was pregnant with his child.
Walker moved into a flat after he was caught breaking Covid lockdown rules in 2020 to host a four-hour sex party with two escorts.
But Annie forgave him after he proposed to her in June of that year with a £250,000 ring.
