ITV forced to apologise over Jill Scott's 'industrial language' in Soccer Aid

ITV forced to apologise over Jill Scott's 'industrial language' in Soccer Aid

Jill Scott captained England to a first Soccer Aid victory since 2018 but her colourful language was captured on camera.

ITV were forced to apologise after Jill Scott appeared to have some colourful language caught on camera during Soccer Aid.

The former Manchester City and Everton midfielder captained England to a first victory over the Rest of the World since 2018.

Joe Cole, Ellen White, Steven Bartlett (2), Jermain Defoe and Theo Walcott were all on target for the Three Lions, while Eden Hazard, Alessandro Del Piero and Billy Wingrove struck for the opposition in a 6-3 thriller at Stamford Bridge.

Tommy Fury produced one of the moments of the match when he tried to roll the ball in from a throw-in, but Scott was responsible for another.

In the first half, the pundit produced an exquisite touch to take Jack Wilshere's pass into her stride and tried to find former Lionesses teammate White when the score was poised at 2-2.

However the pass was a little overhit and Scott appeared to shout "f***" in frustration.

It wasn't hard for viewers notice and shortly after, lead commentator Sam Matterface had to deliver the mandatory apology.

He said: "I don't know if you noticed it, I certainly didn't but there may have been, just may have been, some rather industrial language that emanated from Jill Scott's mouth when she missed the chance [to score], if that was the case, we do apologise!"

Co-commentator Iain Stirling, who later entered the fray for a cameo, followed up by joking: "We'll apologise on Jill Scott's behalf, just in case, I'm actually getting fed up apologising on Jill Scott's behalf. She needs to wash her mouth out with soap quite frankly!"

The 37-year-old does have previous when it comes to X-rated remarks being caught on camera.

In England women's Euro 2022 final win over Germany at Wembley, Scott infamously told an opponent to "f*** off you f***ing prick".

That led to the BBC issuing an apology, with Robyn Cowen saying: "Apologies to any lip readers.

"Not sure you need to be one to figure out what Jill Scott thought of that."
