Carol Parmley, 68, mum of Atkinson’s wife Julie, 51, vowed: “I will have a word with him.

“Julie’s been away on holiday. I haven’t heard about it.

“I cannot imagine Martin flirting with anybody or doing anything that is not right if that is what is being insinuated.”

Video assistance showed a woman in a red dress hugging Atkinson at a disco in Batam.

He was also snapped with a female companion outside a four-star hotel.


He said: “Forget it” when asked about the footage back in Wakefield, West Yorks.

Ref Andre Marriner, 48, sat a young woman on his knee and poked his tongue in her ear.

Yesterday he said: “I’m not interested”, before shutting his door in Solihull, West Mids.

David Coote, 36, who is believed to be single, had his hands around a gyrating companion in the Square & KTV nightclub.

Married Kevin Friend, 47, was filmed appearing to whisper in a woman’s ear.

They plus Premier League colleagues Roger East, 54, and Graham Scott, 50, had been boozing with six local women after a golf tournament.

Earlier the refs handed out bike helmets at an orphanage.

Batam is known for its sex tourism. There is no suggestion the refs or women have done anything illegal.

Bosses at Professional Game Match Officials Ltd did not comment.
