Plenty of former players were there and Woods, 35, awkwardly failed to recognise an ex-Toon defender.

Woods recalled on talkSport that she was approached by Ryan Taylor and didn’t realise it was him.

She explained: “I had a very awkward moment.

“Ryan – I hope he’s not listening yet – walked up and just because we were frantically trying to find [our restaurant]. You know how big Wembley is and if you get lost, you’re lost for days.

“We had been saying hello to all the Geordies and fans outside and then we got up and Ryan came up to me and said ‘Hi, how are you?’

“I said ‘Good thank you, how are you?’, and he went, ‘Yeah, nice to properly actually meet you in real life.’

“I went ‘Sorry, who are you?’, I didn’t recognise him.

“He went ‘It’s Ryan’, and I went ‘Oh God, Ryan, I’m so sorry.’ It was awful.

“I’m so sorry, Ryan. I did spend the rest of the day apologising profusely to him.”

Woods’ co-host Ally McCoist joked that their breakfast show had lost any chance of getting him on before she revealed Taylor was going to join the duo on air if Newcastle had won.

The 38-year-old played 106 times for the Magpies and he also had spells at Wigan, Hull and Tranmere.
