BBC’s coverage of Liverpool’s FA Cup replay at Wolves was embarrassingly interrupted by loud porn noises.

Shortly after the programme started, the noises began, although it was unclear where the sounds were coming from.

The broadcaster cut away for a pre-match interview with Jurgen Klopp, but after returning to the studio the noises started up again.

Presenter Gary Lineker saw the funny side, as he joked: ‘Would you stop making those noises, Danny,’ directing his quip at pundit Danny Murphy.

After over 10 minutes of the noises, Lineker was relieved to hand over to the channel’s commentary team prior to kick-off.

Moments after the game got underway, Lineker then tweeted to confirm that he had finally discovered where the noise was coming from.

‘Well, we found this taped to the back of the set,’ Lineker wrote alongside a picture of a mobile phone.

‘As sabotage goes it was quite amusing.’

Fans could not help but laugh at the BBC’s misfortune, with one supporter joking that someone would be facing the sack following the incident.

‘Someone at BBC is losing their job,’ they joked.

Another added: ‘BBC MOTD having a mare,’ as the sounds continued.

‘Creased at someone at BBC getting done with the porn sound,’ another fan wrote along with a series of laughing face emojis.

The porn noises in the studio was just the beginning of a nightmare start to the evening at Molineux, as there was also a power cut in the early stages of the game, meaning that VAR was not used in the opening 16 minutes.

Fans swiftly took to social media to react to the sounds during BBC's pre-match coverage

‘The magic of the cup,’ they teased.
