"Can I have two biscuits?"

The joys of lockdown continue!

Sky News Foreign Affairs Editor Deborah Haynes was giving a live interview from home yesterday when she was interrupted.

Haynes was speaking about David Cameron when her son burst into the room looking for biscuits.

"I'm really sorry, that's my son arriving," she told the camera.

"Really embarrassing."

"Can I have two biscuits?" he asked and Haynes replied "yes, you can have two biscuits."

The shot cut quickly back to studio where presenter Mark Austin didn't seem too impressed.

"Yeah OK," he said, "We'll leave Deborah Haynes in full flow there with some family duties."

"But that's what happens during lockdown and trying to report in lockdown."

However, Austin later followed up with a tweet which read:

'It was the best bit of the programme . Should have stayed with you ! Smart negotiator right there.'

And he wasn't the only person to love the segment.

Haynes received so many nice messages following her son's Sky News appearance that she thanked fans.

'Thank you for the lovely comments after my son’s impromptu appearance mid-live-broadcast,' her tweet read.

'I can confirm that his high-stakes negotiating skills netted him two chocolate digestives.'

Deborah Haynes wasn't the only victim this week!

Dr Clare Wenham, Assistant Professor in Global Health Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science, appeared on BBC News yesterday.

While speaking about local lockdowns she was joined by daughter Scarlett who decided to position some art during her mother's segment.

Scarlett made quite an impression on BBC News' Christian Fraser and eventually turned the interviewer into the interviewee.

Fraser called it, "The most informative interview I've done all day!"
