LBC’s Brexit update was interrupted by the reporter’s 4-year-old causing mayhem
We must surely all remember the time the BBC’s Korea correspondent, Professor Robert Kelly, was interrupted during an interview by the arrival of his children, making them the most famous family in the world for a short time.
It seems that radio journalists are at risk from the same type of interruption, and LBC’s Theo Usherwood was at the heart of his own little drama during a Brexit update with Eddie Mair. The action starts at around 1:30.
If you didn’t hear last night’s Brexit shenanigans with @eddiemair – and the whole thing is getting you down – then the sound of my four-year-old son taking back control live on @LBC might cheer you up. https://t.co/MNEorrD5wm

Neither Theo nor Eddie could control their laughter as the little boy proceeded to flood the LBC political editor’s garden with a hose. Listeners enjoyed the spectacle, too.
This is brilliant, cheered me up no end with all this crap on #brexit all the time.
Maybe little Theo can explain this whole Brexit fiasco clearer than anyone else

If you were wondering what happened after the interview …
Suffice to say the garden has recovered and Usherwood junior is heading for bath time.

Petition for Theo’s four-year-old to be involved in all Brexit interviews from now on – complete with hose.
