BBC pundits attacked by big hornets live on air during coverage of England’s Euro 2024 opener against Serbia

THE BBC’s coverage of England’s opener against Serbia has been hit by a couple of issues.

First, fans begged Beeb bosses to clean the filthy windows in their studio.

And then their pundits were attacked by hornets during the half-time break.

Just as the players were returning for the second half, host Gary Lineker told viewers about their unwanted guests.

Micah Richards quickly changed the subject as all he wanted to talk about was pitchside reporter Joe Hart’s tight shirt.

The former England stopper’s fashion sense was not the only thing picked up on.

Fans claimed Hart’s bizarre arm tattoos made him “look like a zebra crossing.”

England took the lead through Jude Bellingham before Harry Kane had touched the ball.

The Three Lions flew out of the blocks and Jordan Pickford, in particular, was riled up before the game.

BBC cameras captured England’s No1 stopper – who is being cheered on by his wife Megan Davison – firing up fans as he walked to the goal.


Bellingham unveiled a new celebration after scoring.

The playmaker and Trent Alexander-Arnold both took a knee and placed their palm over their face, with some fans saying it reminded them of WWE star Booker T.

Bellingham, 20, had a busy first half as he showed off the other side to his game.

After dispossessing Filip Kostic of the ball he celebrated in the Serb’s face before shoving his opponent.

The Juventus ace did not take kindly to the incident, and could be seen having a pop at Bellingham as he walked off.
