Danny Murphy reveals he got 'PARANOID' during BBC porn prank

‘I wasn’t sure it wasn’t me!’: Danny Murphy reveals he got ‘PARANOID’ during BBC porn prank as Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer blamed him for the shocking gaffe – and admits they didn’t realise it was coming from their studio

  • BBC’s coverage of the FA Cup was sabotaged on Tuesday by sexual noises
  • And Danny Murphy was on set for the embarrassing and shocking incident
  • The ex-Liverpool player said he wasn’t sure where the noise was coming from
  • And he even briefly wondered whether or not he was the one to blame for it 

Danny Murphy has admitted he got ‘paranoid’ during the porn prank that sabotaged BBC’s Match of the Day on Tuesday night during the show’s coverage of the FA Cup.

Shortly after the program’s coverage for Liverpool’s replay at Wolves began on BBC1, embarrassing moaning noises began, with Murphy and his fellow pundits visibly confused about what was going on.

And while a prankster and serial pitch invader has since taken credit for setting off the noises, Murphy was briefly worried that they could have been coming from his own phone as Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer joked he was the culprit.

Danny Murphy said he became ‘paranoid’ as the sounds continued on the set

‘At that point [when Shearer blamed him], I wasn’t actually sure it wasn’t me. So I checked,’ he said on talkSPORT’s White and Jordan, revealing his phone was actually off during the ordeal.

‘The thing was I got paranoid because Gary said it as well!’ 

As the loud sounds drowned out the broadcast and the pundits chuckled, Lineker said, ‘Would you stop making those noises, Danny,’ while Shearer joked that it was all the fault of the ex-Liverpool midfielder.

But the joke, which was apparently organized by YouTuber Daniel Jarvis, got old quickly as the pundits worked to figure out the source. 

‘It became tedious after about five minutes,’ Murphy said. 

‘It was some YouTuber idiot or whatever. But yeah, it was quite funny at first. Initially, because it was so loud in the studio, it was obviously very off-putting but we didn’t realise it was only – we thought maybe it was coming out the tunnel – because there was a speaker just outside the studio – and the whole stadium was getting it. And then we realized it was just us, so we’re thinking someone’s got us here.

Daniel Jarvis later posted a picture of himself with an identical phone to the one Gary Lineker posted

‘And then of course as you know by seeing it, every time it came back to the studio to speak… [it] started again. And the problem was, I couldn’t really hear what Gary was saying, he couldn’t really hear what I was saying, Incey couldn’t hear what [we were saying].’

The noises continued to disrupt the show for around 10 minutes, and it’s now been revealed they were coming from a mobile phone that Jarvis had somehow taped to the set.

The sounds were set as a ring tone on the phone, which he could be seen calling on a livestream to his YouTube channel.

It is not yet known how he managed to get into Molineux stadium and tape the mobile to the set, and the BBC is investigating that major security breach.

Jarvis took to Twitter to claim responsibility for the incident, saying ‘Yes, it was me that pranked the BBC Match of the Day with the sex Phone 🙂 The video coming soon!!!! @BMWJARVO best prankster ever!!!!’

While it made for an embarrassing show on Tuesday, Lineker and Murphy were good sports about the ordeal.

The former called it ‘quite amusing’ in a tweet that confirmed he had found the mobile.

Murphy acknowledged that the incident provided a bit of entertainment during an unremarkable 1-0 Liverpool win.

‘It gave us something,’ he said.
