British ITV newsreader Alastair Stewart is upstaged by toddler Iris Wronka during a live TV interview

Viewers and journalists took to Twitter to share their amusement about the ITV Lunchtime News incident.

Lucy Wronka was invited to speak on a programme on ITV News to discuss new guidelines on testing for milk allergies in babies with veteran news presenter Alastair Stewart.

A British news anchor is being praised for his cool handling of a live interview that took an unexpected turn when it was hijacked by the subject's sister.

Stewart was speaking to Lucy Wronka about her son George's milk allergy when her daughter Iris chose to wander onto the stage.

Iris Wronka stole the show while appearing on UK's ITV News alongside her older brother George and her mother Lucy during the lunchtime bulletin, reports The Daily Mail.

Stewart eventually addressed the hilarious moment, joking Iris "will do whatever she chooses to do for the next couple of minutes". Remember Robert Kelly, the Korea expert whose interview with the BBC went awry after his toddler burst in?

"From all of us, a very good afternoon to you" he added, before giving the sweet toddler the high-five she'd been after.

The little girl charmed viewers as she ran around the studio and climbed onto the anchor desk.

"You're alright; you just carry on there", said Stewart as he tried - and failed - to keep a straight face.
