Remember way back in 2017 when a BBC news interview about North Korea went viral it was gatecrashed by children?
Oh how we laughed, safe in the knowledge that we'd never have to worry about our children crashing our work calls.
Then Covid-19 happened and now parents around the world are currently using everything from Paw Patrol to Percy Pigs to silence their children.
However, sometimes young children will just NOT be silenced, particularly when it comes to the issue of biscuits or finding out who Mammy is talking to.
Yesterday, both Sky News and BBC News had their own guest appearances.
First up was Deborah Haynes, who is foreign affairs editor at Sky News but most importantly, the holder of the choccy digestives in the household.
Thank you for the lovely comments after my son’s impromptu appearance mid-live-broadcast. I can confirm that his high-stakes negotiating skills netted him two chocolate digestives https://t.co/OQRGiMNih2

Next up, BBC were speaking to Clare Wenham, Assistant Professor in Global Health Policy at London School of Economics and Political Science when her daughter Scarlett decided to do a little remodeling.
“Mummy what's his name?”

A big 'ol round of applause to the BBC news anchor for handling the interruption like a PRO.
And if there's one thing we can all learn from this...if you ask for biscuits the right way, you'll get the biscuits.
