The ex-England star edited her Instagram post to remove the tagged one

She tagged the label in an Instagram post where she worked as a pundit during a game in her designer outfit.

But that didn’t go down well with her employers, the promotion of commercial companies was frowned upon – and even forbidden for some employees.

Scott, 38, now removed the tag on the post from a week ago and edited it three days ago.

She captioned it: “Working with @bbcfootball @bbcsport ⚽️ on Vibing World Cup stuff…”

A BBC spokesman said: “We have spoken to Alex who has removed the label and will not do so again.”

The Reiss outfit consisted of an orange blazer, valued at £278, with matching trousers, costing £168.

The silk shirt cost a further £228 and was finished off with a pair of sequined heels.

It’s not the first time Scott’s attire choice has caused a stir at the World Cup, however.

Ahead of England’s first game of the tournament against Iran, she wore a rainbow colored OneLove armband in support of the LGBTQ+ community after Harry Kane and other captains were told not to wear them.

Scott makes just under £200,000 in her role on the BBC.

Earlier this year, former BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker stopped posting images of certain brands.

Although it is known that he had no contract or did business with them, he no longer received gifts from third parties.
