Good Morning Britain: Susanna Reid was forced to apologise after a camera breaks down in the middle of the interview [ITV]
The presenting duo were in the middle of interviewing Sir Michael Fallon during Wednesday’s edition of Good Morning Britain when the incident occurred.
The Secretary of State for Defence was on the show live from Westminster discussing the national ship building plans when a crash was heard in the studio.
She then apologised for the backstage drama, saying: “I think a camera has fallen apart in the studio, apologies for that if the noise put us off.”

While Sir Michael brushed off the incident, Piers laughed nervously while Susanna tried to get back on track.
But ever the professionals, they moved swiftly on from the accident and resumed the interview as normal.
The camera fail comes just weeks after a technical glitch which saw stand-in host Jeremy Kyle yell at the camera crew.
As the camera cut to show to the weatherman, Alex said loudly: “Sorry but I just couldn’t hear then Kate. Could you repeat that?”

Laughing, Kate Garraway jibed Alex that he wasn’t telling a very good joke, following on from the programme’s chat about the best one-liners they could all come up with.
But Jeremy Kyle wasn’t as forgiving as he scolded: “Can I ask something of the technological side of GMB?
“We can speak to America but we can’t go to Clevedon. What’s the matter?” he joked.
As everyone laughed at the quip, Kate neatly segued into the weather by saying that “that had been a bit of a joke” and Alex moved on with the weather.

Fans were amused that Alex had been “banished” to the picturesque pier for the entirety of the show and its follow-on GMB Today.
