The city of Hull is gripped by FA Cup fever today as its football team takes part in its first ever cup final.

Local bee lady Jean Bishop, a lady who dresses a bee to raise money for the charity, said "everybody would go mad" if the Tigers beat Arsenal at Wembley:

A bathroom manufacturer in Hull is so flushed with pride about Hull City's progress that it has made a special commemorative toilet seat featuring manager Steve Bruce's face.

Hull's celebrity fans, including politicians John Prescott and Alan Johnson, have wished the team well ahead of the most prestigious match in the club's history:

Support for the Tigers has also spread outside Yorkshire, with TV businessman and Spurs fan Alan Sugar sending a cheeky tweet to Arsenal-loving Piers Morgan.

Watch coverage of the match live on the ITV Sport website from 3pm.
