Kate Diamond has gone viral after posting a series of tweets revealing that she persuaded her husband not to renew his season ticket for this campaign. Ouch. 

She has also told followers - we think (hope) she's joking - to tune in on the final day of the season to see if her marriage is still intact. You have to admire her sense of humour, but it's far from certain as to whether her husband is seeing the funny side right now. 

Anyway, here are the tweets for your pleasure: 

Twitter reaction 

As you can imagine, the reaction on social media has been, predictably, interesting. Here's just some of the reaction: 

Will Leicester win the title? More importantly, will Kate Diamond's marriage survive? Have your say below!
