The Apprentice winner's BBC Breakfast interview awkwardly cut short mid-broadcast

And Lord Sugar couldn't resist making a dad joke about it.

The Apprentice's latest winner Harpreet Kaur was on the BBC Breakfast sofa yesterday (March 26) to talk about her experience on the show and what she's been up to after winning.

As she was talking about the big personalities that we see in the boardroom, an alarm in the studio went off and a pre-recorded voice asked everyone to evacuate.

Presenters Roger Johnson and Rachel Burden apologised and explained that the news programme was going to have to go off-air for a while due to the evacuation, and viewers were left watching a title card until things were all sorted out.

And of course, of course, Lord Sugar could not resist making a dad joke about the whole situation, tweeting: " @BBCBreakfast today. I hope the fire alarm didn't go off because Harpreet left another batch of cakes in the oven."

The BBC confirmed a short while later on social media that everyone was "safe" and thanked viewers for their concern: "Thanks for all the messages about the fire alarm that interrupted the end of this morning's programme. Everyone is safe and is back in the building."

Harpreet won the latest series of the BBC reality competition after Lord Sugar chose to invest in her dessert business rather than Kathryn Burn's pyjama prints company.

Never one to miss an opportunity to do some business, Harpreet reacted to her win on Twitter with a link to place an order with her brand, Oh So Yum.

One moment that didn't make the final edit showed Kathryn getting emotional at seeing some of her fellow candidates again, even though it was only a few days since she had last seen them.

"It's not in the show, you won't see it, but I was actually crying," she explained. "I'd only seen Steph and Brittany, like, two days before, but when I saw them again, I was like, 'Oh my god!’ I missed them so much.

"I felt really emotional. I don't know if there was obviously just high emotion anyway because it was the final, but yeah it was really, really good."

The Apprentice and spin-off series You're Fired are available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
