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

The noise started just moments before the FA Cup third round replay was 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.

It kept stopping and then restarting almost immediately.

Once the game had started, Shearer joked that it was coming from Danny Murphy’s phone with the ex-Liverpool man also in the studio.

But Lineker took to Twitter to reveal exactly what had happened. He uploaded a photo of a phone stuck 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.”

Fans have been reacting on social media to Lineker’s Tweet.

One joked: “Was genuinely worried Danny Murphy was having the time of his life out of shot.”
