A LIVE television interview has gone viral after the interviewee’s office was disturbed by the arrival of an unexpected, fully grown guest.
Professor Susan Traherne was discussing the complexities of vaccine efficacy on a breakfast news show when eagle-eyed viewers spotted her daughter Sophie blundering through the door.
In the clip, Professor Traherne tries to keep speaking as, still drowsy from a nap, the 270-month old staggers into view. Despite Traherne’s efforts to keep her quiet, the young adult’s cries of ‘Mum, what’s my national insurance number?’ can clearly be heard.
When ignoring the interruption does not work, Professor Traherne gently explains to her daughter that the HMRC letter is on the kitchen table where she left it. Her inquisitive daughter replies with further questions about how to address the letter and the location of her sports bra.
Speaking later, Professer Traherne said: “People don’t always understand that being the mother of a grown woman is a full-time job that you have to juggle with your actual full-time job.
“Especially when your kids are entering difficult years like their terrible twenty-twos.”
