Good Morning Britain thrown into chaos as coronavirus sufferer’s phone keeps ringing during interview – The Sun

GOOD Morning Britain was thrown into chaos during a coronavirus sufferer's video-link interview earlier today.

Dr Clare Gerada had called in from her Kennington home to discuss the killer illness, but viewers at home were distracted as her phone wouldn't stop ringing, her dog could be heard grunting, and a mystery man appeared behind her mid-chat.

Clare is nearing the end of her isolation after being tested and confirmed to have coronavirus, which she described as feeling like having "probably five rounds with Mike Tyson".

Speaking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, she also listed her symptoms as a dry throat, cough, and aching limbs.

However, she was interrupted as her phone started to ring incredibly loudly – which she apologised for as host Susanna suggested she switched it off.

Clare was then seen looking slightly flustered as the ringer went off again, and after she silenced it once more fans could hear a dog grunting off-screen.

As if that wasn't enough, a man who is presumed to be Clare's husband briefly dodged in and out of shot.

Speaking in the interview, Clare told the hosts: "I've had to keep distance from my husband, who is in the same building."

Fans at home found the entire segment hilarious, even comparing it to the infamous BBC News interview that saw Robert Kelly's children burst through the door during his video link.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: "This poor GP trying to speak seriously about coronavirus on #GMB and her phone keeps ringing then her dog comes in grunting" alongside a crying with laughter emoji.

Another added: "WHAT is going on with #GMB today? Phones going off, dogs, random men entering the room now the camera zooming, moving around. Should we just have a day off?"

A third said: "This interview is rivalling the fella on BBC News whose kids came in on the baby walker."

Good Morning Britain was dominated by coronavirus today, with Susanna forced to try and calm Piers down after he erupted at Dr Hilary during a live debate.

Piers has made no secret of the fact he thinks the UK isn’t acting quickly enough to contain the virus and he continued to make his point clear during the discussion.

Britain’s virus death toll leapt from 21 to 35 yesterday and included Nick Matthews, 59 — the youngest UK victim.

Yesterday the number of cases rose from 1,140 to 1,391.
