Professor Robert Kelly hilariously gatecrashed by kids during live BBC interview

TWO brazen children have become unlikely internet stars after crashing their father’s interview live on the BBC.

Robert Kelly, a professor of political science at Pusan National University in South Korea, was speaking to BBC World News about the impeachment of the country’s President Park Geun-hye.

Speaking to the BBC’s James Menendez from what looked like his home office about relations with North Korea, one of Prof Kelly’s children then proceeded to strut into the room.

Trying to maintain a sense of decorum, Prof Kelly keeps eye contact with the camera while trying to steer the child out of shot – before a baby in a walker enters the fray.

As if things can't get any more hilarious, a woman then skids into the room and drags the children out, before frantically crawling back to yank the door shut.

Too late though, damage done.

Interviewer Mr Menendez later tweeted that it was "hard to keep a straight face", adding, "it was the desperate reach for the door at the end that nearly did it for me".

So if you think you're having a bad day at work, spare a thought for poor Prof Kelly.

The clip quickly spread across the internet, but it seemed Prof Kelly was unaware of just how popular his children's cameos had become:
