When working in live television you know anything can happen. And when doing interviews and segments with kids, they're usually pretty adorable, but also unpredictable.

That's was exactly the case with BBC anchor Alastair Stewart's most recent interview. He was talking to a young boy about milk allergies on ITV Lunchtime News. His mom and sister were with him on set, but the little girl stole the show.

She got up and ran around the desk, then climbed onto it. She made it up after several attempts and crawled in front of Stewart, appearing in his shot a few times.

Stewart is being praised for keeping his cool and handling it like a pro. Saying that she would do "whatever she chooses to do for the next few minutes" and continued with the interview. He referenced the toddler climbing onto his desk once or twice, but also told her "you're alright, you just carry on there."

After stifling laughter for most of the segment he joked at the end of the broadcast that "we will have a more peaceful time at 6:30." He ended the interview with a high-five for the little girl and handshakes with her mom and brother.
