JONNY BAIRSTOW was “stitched up like a kipper” on live TV on Sunday after being caught with a pair of binoculars appearing to ogle female fans during England’s clash with South Africa.

The batsman, 30, was spotted keeping an eye on the action as Dom Sibley and Joe Root put the visitors in control against South Africa.

But thanks to some witty production from the TV crew, fans reckon Bairstow has been caught checking out the wrong kind of talent.

Bairstow isn’t playing in the Second Test at Newlands, Cape Town after amidst a poor run of form – replaced by Surrey youngster Ollie Pope.

But the flame-haired Yorkshireman looked in high spirits, kitted out in training gear on the England balcony.

Clutching a pair of binoculars, Bairstow – once rumoured to be dating Poldark star Eleanor Tomlinson – was seen looking intently around the ground on day three.

KP GOES NUTS
