POPULAR Leeds United TV presenter Emma Louise Jones sent fans into a frenzy with a selfie holding the Championship trophy.
In a now-deleted tweet to her 203,000 followers, the on-camera personality shared the celebratory snap after the Whites finally returned to the Premier League after 16 years.
The snap showed Jones in a bar area inside Elland Road clasping the trophy with a huge grin on her face.
Most of the replies to the now unavailable tweet have gone but Jones replied to one which read: “Great job all year on both LUTV and Five Live! Here’s to a cracking PL season!”
Jones never used to be a football fan but is now set to follow Leeds back to the Premier League.
She has given fans plenty of reason to cheer with her appearances on LUTV since her 2017 debut.
And with Marcelo Bielsa finally finding the secret formula to Leeds’ success, the Premier League is set to see much more of Jones.
Emma conducts post and pre-match interviews for LUTV – while also working for BBC Radio 5 Live and the Netball Nation podcast.
She famously stole the show during England’s 2018 World Cup warm-up win over Costa Rica – with the TV camera operator clearly more interested in her than the match.
Leeds yesterday tried to claim their much criticised open-top bus celebration after their 4-0 win was to keep fans AWAY from Elland Road.
Photos on Emma’s social media through the years have shown her alongside Leeds legend Eddie Gray and a crop of stars including Pontus Jansson and Stuart Dallas.
Her success in the role is all the more remarkable considering she never used to watch the beautiful game before getting the job.
Speaking to Ourtown magazine, Emma said: “I never used to be a football fan – but since doing Leeds I’ve become one!
“The atmosphere, passion and buzz rubbed off on me very quickly and now I’m the noisiest spectator watching from the gallery.”
Emma has a background in news but admits she found it hard asking people difficult questions.
She says she once ended up crying with an interviewee – but there have been no such problems with Leeds… especially this season.
Jones said: “Whilst in Hull, I managed to get a job on Leeds United TV, presenting their matchday shows.
“Again, I couldn’t believe my luck as TV had been another dream of mine.”
