ITV’s Soccer Aid issued an apology to viewers after Jill Scott used ‘industrial language’ live on air during Sunday’s match. 

The charity game returned for it’s 18th edition as celebrities got together to raise millions for UNICEF and help those less fortunate around the world. 

£15,049,590 was raised by the event, with former Chelsea star Eden Hazard scoring for the World XI on his return to Stamford Bridge.

England finally ended their five-match Soccer Aid losing streak as beat World XI, which included the likes of ex-players Del piero and Jermaine Defoe, 6-3. 

However, at one point in the first half former Lionesses midfielder Scott, who was representing England, missed an opportunity to put her team ahead and let out her frustration in x-rated style.

Sam Matterface, who was on commentary, 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!’

Meanwhile co-commentator and Love Island host Iain Strirling joked: ‘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!’ 

In the end Scott was all smiles as England secured victory at the home of Chelsea and lifted a shield. 

England, managed by Frank Lampard, took the lead through Joe Cole, whose effort went through the legs of Petr Cech. 

Hazard then equalised for the World XI with a free-kick before Alessandro Del Piero made it 2-1.

White then made Soccer Aid history as she found the net following good work from Jack Wilshere.

In the second half Bartlett put England in front just seconds after coming on as a substitute.

A fine finish from Jermain Defoe then made it 4-2 and there was then a further blow for the World XI as Usain Bolt had to be taken off on a stretcher.

Bartlett’s incredible performance continued as he doubled his tally, but Billy Wingrove then scored for the World XI from the penalty spot.

It was England who would get the final goal of the game, though, as Theo Walcott made it 6-3.
