THE BBC has been forced into a grovelling apology after viewers were left stunned as a bizarre “porn noise” interrupted their coverage of Wolves vs Liverpool.

Pundits Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer struggled to hide their embarrassment as they were forced to compete with an odd noise that viewers likened to a porn film.

It was later revealed that a notorious prankster had hidden a mobile phone on the TV set at Molineux for Liverpool’s FA Cup win at Wolves

Daniel Jarvis, who is a serial pitch invader, then activated the sexy sounds ring-tone simply by ringing the mobile as he watched the live pictures on BBC1.

That led to the BBC being forced into releasing a statement issuing a grovelling apology.

A spokesperson said: “We apologise to any viewers offended during the live coverage of the football this evening. We are investigating how this happened.”

The honking noises started just moments before the FA Cup third round replay was about to get underway.

It was first played as Lineker went live to co-commentator Shearer who was waiting to speak to him in the stadium.

Lineker started laughing and said: “I don’t know who’s making that noise.

“I don’t know if somebody is sending a joke on someone’s phone, I don’t know if you heard it at home.”

Being the professional that he is, Lineker continued to present the show impeccably despite the sound simply not going away as it kept stopping and then restarting almost immediately.

Lineker took to Twitter to reveal exactly what had happened by uploading a photo of a phone taped to the back of the set.

The caption said: “Well, we found this taped to the back of the set. As sabotage goes it was quite amusing.”

Serial pitch invader Jarvis claimed responsibility for the incident.

The YouTuber, whose account name is Jarvo69, hosted a live stream as he hijacked the BBC’s coverage.

He proudly announced at the beginning of the video: “Here we are, we have set up a phone with a loud sex noise in the BBC studios at the Wolves v Liverpool FA Cup replay.”

Jarvo69 watches the coverage with his phone held carefully in hand, waiting for the moment to pull off his practical joke.

He has also now posted a short video to Twitter showing himself in the Beeb studio before coverage began.

He wrote: “Yes, it was me that pranked the BBC Match of the Day with the sex phone. The video coming soon!!!! Best prankster ever!!!”

Jarvis has a long history of big stunts during sports events, and once even invaded the stage on the X Factor in 2016.
