ITV News reader Alastair Stewart had his work cut out when reading this lunchtime news today, as toddler Iris Wronka stole the show.
After coming into the studio with her mum and older brother George to discuss his milk allergy, little Iris (like all toddlers) decided sitting still on live TV was not her agenda. Instead she wanders round the studio, climbs on the desk and interrupts Alastair as he conducts his interview.
The family were on TV to discuss the new guidelines issued today on testing babies for potentially-deadly milk allergies.
Journalists everywhere have praised Alastair Stewart’s professionalism, telling Iris to ‘just carry on there’ whilst continuing his interview. BBC journalist Nick Robinson added to the praise, admitting that one of his children licked his desk when visiting him at work.

A (hot) cup of tea
You have countless ones that are stone cold or at best luke warm. So being able to sit back (OK, hide in the kitchen) with a fresh tea and finish it… well, that’s heaven in a teacup.
Reading a book
Right til the end. These days, your literary opportunities tend to revolve around supermarket labels, picture books and a quick scroll of your friends' status updates on Facebook.
You relish the music from your train neighbour’s headphones simply because it’s not anything from a Disney film. And you laugh when you hear someone complain about a long journey. Do they not realise how amazing that time is for catching up on Twitter? Or, let’s be honest, napping.
Your usual is Petit Filou – makes sense if your toddler’s having them anyway. So treating yourself to a grown-up yoghurt with a special fruit compote or chocolate section? Bliss.
Watching Made In Chelsea
Those evenings where you get to finish a full episode of something on Netflix without falling asleep. Winning.
A trip to the hairdresser ALONE!
You’d usually be taking your toddler for a trim, in a constant slight cold sweat that he won’t sit still or might run riot. So, getting to go on your own? To sit in that chair, drink the herbal tea, read the magazines (yes, plural!)… Bliss.
Sleep beyond 7am
Now that’s what they call a lie-in.
Wearing those earrings
You know the ones – big, beautiful, don’t-need-a-necklace earrings that make any outfit. Except they’re also baby eye candy, enticing her to pull on them at every opportunity. Ouch! Got a babysitter for the evening? Out they come.
Forget pouring it in the spag bol – that glass of red is predominantly being drunk by you.
Moments of silence
Before, you might've phoned a friend or put on the radio. Now? Sit back. Close eyes. Ahhhh…..
Going to the toilet by yourself
The peace and quiet of being in the bathroom alone with your, erm… thoughts.
One without brightly coloured bubble bath, squeaky plastic toys or the potential for the room to be flooded.
