She asked: “Wouldn’t it help if you picked up the phone to Nicola Sturgeon? I think people will want to know if you can sort that out.”

Mr Salmond struggled to answer her questions, with a delay on the line making things more difficult.

This meant the pair started speaking over each other.

Mr Salmond chuckled: “Kate, if you keep interrupting me on a delayed line, it’s going to be very difficult to conduct the interview. Can you let me answer the question?”
