In a weird prank, pornographic audio was performed on the air throughout the BBC’s stay broadcast of an FA Cup match through a cellphone apparently hidden by a joker within the studio. The incident occurred throughout the broadcaster’s program earlier than the FA Cup match between Wolverhampton and Liverpool on the Molineux Stadium on Tuesday.
The noises interrupted the pre-match broadcast by former England striker Gary Lineker.
We discovered it taped to the again of the set. It was fairly enjoyable whereas the sabotage was occurring. 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/ikUhBJ38Je

Lineker later posted on Twitter a photograph of a cellphone he mentioned was “taped to the again of the set” contained in the stadium.
“It was fairly enjoyable whereas the sabotage was occurring,” Lineker mentioned.
“We apologize to all viewers who have been disturbed throughout the stay broadcast of soccer tonight. We’re investigating how that occurred.” – BBC spokesperson

The BBC appeared much less amused and launched a press release: “We apologize to any viewers who have been disturbed throughout the stay broadcast of soccer tonight.”
Somebody calling himself “Jarvo”, calling himself a YouTube joker, tweeted that he was behind this demonstration and posted a video displaying him calling the telephone to activate the sounds.
Jarvo, actual identify Daniel Jarvis, was banned for 2 years from all sporting occasions in England and Wales in October after he pitched in a cricket take a look at match between England and India in September 2021 and plunged into England batsman Jonny Bairstow.
