Gary Lineker opens MOTD with question for Danny Murphy after sex noise prank

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker asked Danny Murphy a cheeky question to open the show on Saturday night.

The former Barcelona and Leicester City striker poked fun at Murphy after a sex noise prank was hilariously pulled on the BBC programme during the broadcaster's coverage of the third-round replay between Wolves and Liverpool on Tuesday, January 17, the infamous moaning could be repeatedly heard in the background.

Lineker looked around the studio in disbelief before chuckling to himself as he said: "I don't know who's making that noise."

After the game had got underway it emerged someone had planted a phone to play the clip over and over. "Well, we found this taped to the back of the set. As sabotage goes it was quite amusing," tweeted Lineker.

Lineker thought it would be genius to drop his colleague in it again after Alan Shearer joked after the match on Tueday that the noise was Murphy's phone.

Opening the programme, Lineker asked Murphy: "Six games on the way, let's hope we're not rudely interrupted. Jermaine Jenas and Danny Murphy here. Danny, have you turned your phone off?"

Before Murphy, cheekily smirking, replied: "It's off tonight."

Infamous pitch invader Jarvo69 soon posted a video on YouTube taking credit for the sabotage ahead of Liverpool's win earlier this week.

In the video, he can be seen speaking to someone on the phone before calling another device. It seems that the device is the one found by Lineker and Co with the ringtone set to that of the viral adult noises.

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