BBC’s pre-match coverage of the FA Cup replay between Liverpool and Wolves was disrupted by On-air sex noises with a prankster claiming credit for the incident.
Sex noises came from a phone taped to the back of the studio set as legendary presenter Gary Lineker became unable to hide his anger although describing it as a “quite amusing” sabotage.
The BBC’s press office waisted no time to issue a statement which they did at half time after sex noises were heard on air during a live broadcast.

“We apologise to any viewers offended during the live coverage of the football this evening,” a statement from a spokesperson read. “We are investigating how this happened.”
Co-commentator Alan Shearer had joked that the phone belonged to studio pundit and former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy at a studio at Wolverhampton’s Molineux Stadium where Liniker presented the program alongside pundits Paul Ince and Danny Murphy. “The floodlights going off, Danny Murphy’s phone going off in the studio; what else can happen?” Shearer quipped.
YouTuber Daniel ‘Jarvo’ Jarvis claimed to be behind the prank, live streaming the whole episode. “Here we are, we have set up a phone with a loud sex noise in the BBC studio at the Wolves versus Liverpool FA Cup replay,” he said on the stream.
