Sunday Brunch forced off air during today's show

There was a temporary technical issue

A live broadcast of Sunday Brunch was interrupted due to a technical fault.

The programme was in the middle of a segment about coffee from around the world when it was replaced by a message saying "Programmes continue shortly".

The Channel 4 show was off air for approximately one minute, a lifetime in live TV.

When it resumed, host Tim Lovejoy said: "We lost some of our viewers due to a technical fault.

"It was amazing, the best telly ever. Welcome back."

Tickled viewers were quick to take the proverbial...

One amused himself suggestion Tim was to blame for the break in transmission.

Another joked that the break was the highlight.

Co-star Simon Rimmer added of the missing segment: "When we win the Bafta for that bit you will see it."

Other fans of the show joked that it was the strength of the coffee being served up during an earlier segment this morning that had taken the programme off air.

One wrote on Twitter: "I’m a fan of proper coffee. It seems to have broken the programme though..."

Guests on the show this week included Take That singer Howard Donald, actress Zawe Ashton and comedian Joe Lycett.
