An incident during the FA Cup live coverage of the match between Liverpool and Wolves left BBC apologetic after the Gary Lineker show was interrupted by P*rn sound in between the intense discussion of the pundits.

Out of nowhere, there appeared a weird sound from the studio as Gary Lineker, Danny Murphy, and Paul Ince tried not to be disrupted by the issue, but the loud sound couldn’t help them with their cause.
“Will you stop making those noises, Danny,” laughed Lineker while Murphy insisted, “It’s not me.”

However, when the game got going in the Molineux Stadium, Gary Lineker pulled off his inner Sherlock and found a trace of the source after discovering an old phone taped to the seats.
“Well, we found this taped to the back of the set. As sabotage goes it was quite amusing.”- the Englishman posted on Twitter.

Clearly, the former legends of their respective clubs didn’t like the fact of facing this unwanted moment and later revealed that it was an unknown YouTube prankster who happened the scandalous incident.
Official authorities of BBC are trying to close the issue and still searching for the source behind the scandal after seeking for an apology to its viewers.
In an official statement, BBC said, “We apologize’ to any viewers offended during the live coverage of the football this evening. We are investigating how this happened.”

Gary Lineker had seen the funny side of the complete action and expressed zero guilt towards the happening and told BBC’s Kirsty Wark after the FA Cup clash, “We’ve certainly got nothing to [be sorry] for.”
“If you told me this morning that tonight I’d be on Newsnight talking about a p*rn scandal, I would have been terrified.”- Lineker further added to his statement.
