BBC chaos as Alex Scott forced to apologise after losing her cool on live TV

Alex Scott was forced to apologise live on TV after she lost her cool during the Lionesses' Women's World Cup quarter-final.

All eyes were on the iconic Lionesses on Saturday evening (August 12) as they took on Columbia in a bid to secure their place in the Women’s World Cup semi-finals.

And that included popular pundit Alex, 38, who appeared on an episode of Football Focus, that was airing live while the game was on.

During the show, Alex seemed to be totally distracted as she paid close attention to the footy match.

However, things took an awkward turn when Alex lost her cool completely while in the middle of a discussion live on TV.

Alex was left with her jaw on the floor when Lauren Hemp scored last in the first half of the match to equalise for the Lionesses.

But back in the studio, Alex was supposed to be discussing Arsenal’s new signing Declan Rice with her co-stars.

As a result, Alex was forced to issue an apology live on air, confessing: “Sorry I am getting carried away here, England have just equalised and I am listening to you talk about Declan Rice.

"I tell you this is live TV for you, I told you they had to keep me under control, I've already lost my cool.”

Co-presenters Dion Dublin and Ashley Williams then chimed in to try and get Alex to focus on the discussion instead of the tense match.

Despite the awkwardness, fans watching the show at home couldn’t help but find the situation amusing.

Taking to X to express their joy at Alex’s antics, one fan wrote: "All eyes on the lionesses!! How can you keep your cool?!”

Someone else said: “I love her,” as a third quipped: “They properly lost control."

A fourth chimed in and added: "Alex Scott is me at work when I hide to watch the games.”
