A drunk Sunderland supporter gatecrashed a BBC Look North interview with a fellow fan before the Checkatrade Trophy semi-final at Bristol Rovers.

The man remains swaying in the background despite a friend attempting to lead him away, and he proceeds to put his arm around the interviewee.

He also chants right up in his face before also engaging presenter Jeff Brown in an uninvited embrace.

Jack Ross’s Black Cats side won 2-0 on Tuesday night, with goals either side of half-time from Will Grigg and Lewis Morgan taking them through to the final.


There they will meet Portsmouth at Wembley on March 31st, with Sunderland looking to land their first piece of silverware since the 2006-07 Championship title.

They are also in the hunt for promotion from League One, where they currently lie 3rd – three points ahead of Pompey.
