Tom Tugendhat, a Tory MP, was joined on live TV by his little daughter – and it wasn’t the first time!
During a live TV interview, a politician was joined by one of his young children, revealing the curse of Zoom once more.
It was a matter of ‘oh no, not again!’ for Tom Tugendhat.
On Sunday, Tugendhat was interviewed by Sky’s Trevor Philips about the UK’s overseas aid commitments.
However, the Tory MP was joined halfway through by a drowsy small daughter who appeared to be completely unaware that her father was speaking on live television.
Tugendhat, who retired from the British Army in July 2013 after serving on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, remained composed and continued to speak while cuddling his daughter on his lap.
Tugendhat was holding a live TV interview in March of last year when his two young daughters decided to make a cameo appearance.
The Conservative MP for Tonbridge and Malling was speaking to Sky News from his Tonbridge, Kent, home office when his son, Adam, emerged and asked if he could assist him paint his face.
“I’ll do your face painting in a minute,” the politician said as he motioned his son to depart.
Tugendhat continued the conversation until he was interrupted again, this time by Beatrice, his small daughter.
“Adam!” he exclaims. “Could you possibly be a little quieter?” At one point, Tugendhat pleaded with his son.
After a few minutes, Tugendhat apologized for the background noise and ended the interview.
