Ant and Dec appeared on the programme today

Declan Donnelly was forced to make an abrupt exit during an interview with Ant McPartlin and Lorraine Kelly on her ITV show.

The 61-year-old host was joined by the Geordie duo on the programme earlier today (May 6).

However, during the chat, Dec, 45, appeared distracted as his dog started to bark.

What did Declan Donnelly say?

Addressing the noise, Lorraine initially said: “I can hear your wee dog!”

“Sorry, that’s Rocky,” Dec replied, before adding: “There’s somebody at the door.”

Lorraine attempted to smooth over the distraction, saying: “Oh, listen, [my dog] Angus does that all the time.”

I can hear your wee dog!

Dec then told them: “I’m going to let him out.”

The trio appeared in hysterics as he abruptly left Ant to conduct the interview on his own.

Despite the mishap, Dec eventually returned to finish discussing their upcoming project with Prince Charles.

She told Lorraine: “I came in this morning and said, ‘I’m all ready’ and my mum and dad are there and of course the nurses are there.

Lorraine has continued to support Kate throughout Derek’s battle.
