The picture on the 52-year-old’s account showed a stomach-churning photo of the foxes with the message: ‘A real night lamping. Anyone beat this???’.

The picture was swiftly deleted after it had been posted – but not before the image had been captured and re-posted, sparking anger.

The former football star-turned-actor is renowned for his love of field sports.

But last night Jones insisted his Twitter account had been hacked and he furiously denied tweeting the photo himself.

He wrote: ““I have just woke to see these tweets with fox pics , this is a hack ive never seen this pic in my life and did NOT twwet it is a HACK !!!!!” (all sic).

Lamping is a method used by hunters to kill animals during night-time.

In a recent interview with Shooting UK Jones boasted: ‘Lamping is probably my favourite. “I’ve spent a lot of money on customising my Land Rover for lamping. If the farmer has a fox problem I love going out and dealing with it for him.’

He added: “My perfect day would be to get up early, get the hide out, shoot pigeons all day, bagging 200, then go lamping all night and get half-a-dozen foxes.”

Some animal lovers believed Jones had shot the foxes himself.
