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 and 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.”
Simon Rimmer added: “When we win the Bafta for that bit you will see it.”
Fans joked that it was the strength of the coffee 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..”
Another asked: “Has the coffee guy killed Tim.”
Guests on the show this week included Take That singer Howard Donald, actress Zawe Ashton and comedian Joe Lycett.
