Toddler Interrupts News, Uses Anchor's Desk as Jungle Gym

A toddler hilariously interrupted a Wednesday BBC news broadcast as the newscaster encouraged her to do whatever she wanted and her mom looked on without a word.

Iris’s mother Lucy brought the girl and her older brother George on the broadcast with veteran newscaster Alistair Stewart to discuss the children’s milk allergies. While they did so, Iris decided to climb on the desk and otherwise disrupt the proceedings.

Stewart began the newscast by introducing the family and remarking that Iris would “do whatever she chooses to do over the next couple of minutes.” For a few seconds she walked around the desk, and then proceeded to climb onto it and dance and babble softly. At one point Stewart asked George a question about Iris, gesturing to her and telling her to “carry on there,” which she did.

At the end of the segment, Stewart told the audience, “I think we’ll have a more peaceful time at 6:30, but from all of us, a very good afternoon to you,” and gave the toddler a high-five before signing off.

When social media viewers later criticized the mother’s parenting skills, Stewart defended her by replying that “no one behaved badly in my studio, today.”

In March, another BBC newscast was famously interrupted as Robert E. Kelly’s children came into the room where he was conducting an interview about the impeachment of South Korean President Park Geun-hye.

First, Kelly's toddler walked in and started dancing, and then the baby motored in in a walker before his wife followed and retrieved the children, who then started crying. Kelly apologized calmly and proceeded to continue the interview as the children were heard crying in the background through the closed door off camera.
