Sticky wheel

Had the defender up in the air today to try and get to the bottom of the shuddering, no luck really !
I did however notice that one of my front wheels is sticking . Not at all sure if this is normal but if anyone has the time to look at the video I took this afternoon that would be great !
Video shows the Defender with Diff unlocked and in reverse .

My guess is that the the right wheel that is turning has a slight tight spot, maybe the disc/calliper is binding on one spot slightly. As it binds, the torque is momentarily transferred to the left wheel by the diff. You might try rotating the right wheel by hand to see if you can feel any binding. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

Thanks Bluest, I’ve tried as you’ve suggested, the brakes don’t appear to be binding and I can hear no scuffing. The flange on that wheel doesn’t seem to get any warmer either.
I’m imagining it’s internal , cv or diff but really hoping not ! When I give the wheel a good rock there are no clicks or clunks .

As for the rear not moving at all unless encouraged by hand , I think that may be down to a worn bearing but again no clicking or play from rocking the tyre . I did find a load of grease packed behind the half shaft drive flange , I imagine that’s been pushed out of a bearing https://www.instagram.com/hustynminepark/
