Knightley said: “I got hounded by the TV licence people. I’m like, “I don’t have a f****** TV licence because I don’t have a TV! Please come in and see that I don’t have one!
"But now I have one because it was getting ridiculous watching football on the laptop. [Gary Neville] is just f****** amazing. Absolutely f****** amazing. His commentary…Well, it’s just amazing. He’s amazing.
"They’ve added loads of other [pundits] alongside him now, but I preferred it when it was pure Gary Neville.”
Neville has even responded to Knightley’s revelation by tweeting #benditlikeneville.
In case you were not aware households in the United Kingdom pay a tax of $218 per-year to have a television in their homes, and while this might sound a rather antiquated system, the money goes to the BBC to produce television programs that are free of commercial messages.
