Alex Scott was left calling for 'help' live on air during Soccer Aid on Sunday night an d it was down to the behaviour of her co-host Dermot O'Leary.

Having captained the England Lionesses for many years, Alex has since made the switch from the pitch to the TV screen, first being a contestants on Strictly Come Dancing, before landing presenting gigs on The One Show, Children in Need, BBC football and of course, Soccer Aid. Ex pro Alex was back at the helm of the annual fundraiser as it made the switch from Manchester United's Old Trafford to Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea.

Kick off for the England v World XI was 7.30pm and, with coverage on ITV starting at 6.30pmn, Alex and Dermot both had a lot of air time in the 90 minutes before the game got going. Alex had the job of going into both dressing rooms to get the inside scoop on the England and World starting XIs, before then joining Dermot back on the pitch to talk to Soccer Aid pundits like Jermaine Jenas and Vicky McClure and England players like Tom Grennan and Jill Scott.

As more and more fans flooded into the stands at Stamford Bridge, the atmosphere started to go up a few notches, with a DJ on the pitch as the two teams warmed up. And, as Whitney Houston classic I Wanna Dance With Somebody blasted out around the ground, Dermot couldn't help himself and started to sing and dance along.

Standing next to him, Alex reacted: "Csn somebody help me please?" as Dermot, by this point in full flow, replied: "You've lost me know!" as his dancing started to become more and more enthusiastic.
