A live interview on BBC News was derailed earlier today in the sweetest way, as Dr Clare Wenham’s daughter crashed the chat.
Dr Clare appeared on a segment to discuss the impact of local lockdowns on different areas with journalist Christian Fraser, but their chat got cut short thanks to little Scarlett.
The youngster was spotted in the background of the shot, attempting to do a spot of redecorating – by moving a picture of a framed unicorn on a shelf.
Y’know, just to give the unicorn pride of place.
Clearly unsure of where to put the frame, she approached her mum for help, who was trying her hardest to continue with the interview.
Christian was clearly as distracted by Scarlett as everyone watching from home, stopping the chat to ask the expert: ‘What’s your daughter called?’
‘Scarlett, I think it looks better on the lower shelf,’ he laughed. ‘And it’s a lovely unicorn.
‘It’s a lovely unicorn.’
Trying to get things back on track, he told Dr Clare: ‘Do stop me if you need crack on, do tell us.’
But Scarlett threw herself firmly into the limelight once more, interrupting their chat to continuously ask: ‘What’s his name? What’s his name, Mummy?
‘Christian I’m just deciding where mummy wants it [the frame] to go. Mummy, where do you want it to go?’
The unicorn ended up on the second shelf, just FYI.
And viewers found the whole thing hilarious, flocking to Twitter to discuss Scarlett’s antics after journalist Scott Bryan shared a video of the scene.
‘Someone give this woman a medal,’ one praised, while a Twitter user penned: ‘This is wonderful, great work from Christian as well.’
‘This is the sweetest thing I’ve seen today,’ another commented.
‘This is lovely and no doubt a reality for so many working from home right now,’ another praised.
We demand Scarlett and the unicorn’s presence on every zoom call from now on.
Proving that zoom interruptions really are the highlight of 2020 so far, a Sky News journalist faced a similar issue during an interview shortly after.
Foreign affairs editor Deborah Haynes was caught in an awkward moment after her son waded into the room live on Sky News, asking for a snack.
‘Oh, I’m really sorry, that’s my son arriving. Sorry,’ she told the camera. ‘Sorry, really embarrassing.’
But he wasn’t taking no for an answer, and pleaded with his mum for some biscuits.
‘Yes, you can have two biscuits,’ she told him as the chat came to an end. ‘I’m really sorry about that.’
We can totally relate – to her son, that is…
