Social media users shared their amusement with the clip, with one describing the scene as ‘hilarious’
Earlier this month, John Nicolson, MP for Ochil and South Perthshire, had been taking part in the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee on Zoom when his cat made a hilarious appearance and blocked the camera with his tail.
The committee had been hearing from Dame Carolyn McCall, chief executive of ITV, about the future of public service broadcasting in the wake of the coronavirus health crisis when an orange tail appeared on screen.
In a clip, the SNP politician, 59, continued to speak as Rojo’s bushy tail crossed the camera.
In 2017, Robert Kelly, an associate professor of Political Science at Pusan National University in Busan, was speaking on BBC news when his toddler burst into the room.
Seconds later a baby was seen making his way into the room in a walker as Mr Kelly tried to continue with his interview.
Mr Kelly’s wife Jung-a Kim was then filmed skidding through the threshold and pulling the two children away from the room.
