When sitting down to watch the news, the last thing you expect to see is a toddler wandering over the ITV News studio during a live broadcast.
However, this is exactly what happened when TV presenter Alastair Stewart interviewed a mother about new guidelines on testing for milk allergies in babies.
During the live broadcast her playful little girl climbed on the desk after running around, with her mother and older brother looking on helplessly, according to the Birmingham Mail .
The girl was later even seen high-fiving Alastair as the mother laughed and put her hand over her mouth.
The mother had remained remarkably calm throughout the interview, giving her views on the serious topic while her daughter took centre stage.
