Ally McCoist is in stitches at ‘genius’ prank that played porn noises over live BBC coverage


‘Sadly I’ve never heard that kind of sound in my life!’: Ally McCoist is left in stitches as he discusses ‘genius’ prank that saw porn sounds effects played over Gary Lineker’s live BBC FA Cup coverage

  • Ally McCoist was in fine form on radio when discussing the viral prank on BBC1
  • The ex-Rangers man suggested Danny Murphy was ‘having the time of his life’
  • Murphy was off-camera when Gary Lineker was stunned by the erotic noises 
  • McCoist said the noises were unrelatable, asking Laura Woods to give her best Meg Ryan impression and listeners to explain to how to bring on such a sound

Ally McCoist had a field day while discussing ‘porn noises’ blaring from the BBC studio during their coverage of Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Wolves. 

The unexpected moment of amusement – anger for some – left Gary Lineker fleetingly chucking before trying to compose himself as he crossed to a smirking Alan Shearer in the Wolves gantry. 

McCoist was a little less composed on talkSPORT Breakfast, revealing he ‘wasn’t too happy’, partly because he’s ‘never heard that kind of sounds in my life!’

The former Rangers star had himself and listeners into stitches, even asking them to phone up — ‘we want to know, how do you get that noise in real life?!’

Shortly after the Match of the Day’s coverage for Liverpool’s replay at Wolves began on BBC1, the moaning noises began, leaving Lineker visibly confused and Alan Shearer smiling. 

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy was also in studio alongside Lineker, but was out of shot when the prank began. While his reaction is unknown, McCoist – who works for ITV on commentary – had a unique theory as to what Murphy was up to. 

‘Danny’s having the time of his life! ITV, you get a cup of tea and maybe a sandwich, and they’re getting added perks like that,’ he said. 

Asked by host Laura Woods to describe to listeners what had happened, McCoist quipped ‘Sadly, I’ve never heard that. I’ve never heard that kind of sounds in my life,’ he said while in hysterics. ‘Only time I’ve heard it’s on the phone!’ 

Woods then asked if she ‘should do it’ – describe it, that is. McCoist cheekily replied ‘Go on, I’d love you to do it, in fact. 

‘Give us a When Harry Met Sally, give us your best Meg Ryan,’ referencing the famous scene from the 1989 film in which the actress faked an orgasm in a public diner.

‘Brilliant, genius,’ McCoist said of the pranksters taping a phone to the back of a studio chair before calling it to set off the verbal expressions of euphoria.

McCoist wasn’t quite done in an almost three-minute discussion about the viral moment; ‘I know this probably isn’t the show for it, but what brings that on? Is there a move? 

‘Can pitch this to the listeners, we want to know! How do you get that noise…in real life?’

Youtuber Daniel Jarvis, also known as ‘Jarvo69’ and ‘BMWJarvo’ claimed responsibility for the porn noises, setting the erotic noises as a ringtone before calling the mobile on a live stream as the coverage began. It continued throughout the coverage as Lineker, Murphy and Paul Ince talked over the interruption. 

He has previously been known for pitch invasions, including when where he bumped England batsman Jonny Bairstow and was convicted of aggravated trespass.

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

The broadcast team decided to make light of the situation, with Lineker saying to Murphy; ‘Would you stop making those noises, Danny?’ 

At half-time the host continued to poke fun at the gaffe when referring to Harvey Elliott’s stellar winning goal. 

‘Elliott’s goal was a screamer, not the only one we’ve had tonight,’ Lineker said.
