Host Gary Lineker tried to keep a straight face as the moans came in hot and fast.
After searching the studio, the culprit of the noise was discovered: an older phone that had been hidden on set.
Well, we found this taped to the back of the set. As sabotage goes it was quite amusing. pic.twitter.com/ikUhBJ38Je— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) January 17, 2023
Who could have masterminded such an evil plot? The person responsible was YouTuber prankster BMWJarvo whose actual name is Daniel Jarvis.
