BBC Breakfast was unexpectedly pulled off the air this morning after what seemed like a fire alarm sounded in the studio, leaving fans confused and worried.

At approximately 9:55am, Rachel Burden and Roger Johnson were interviewing guest Harpreet Kaur – the winner of this year's The Apprentice when the studio descended into chaos.

Alarm bells began to ring before an automated announcer said: "Attention, attention, please evacuate the building by the nearest available exit."

Looking completely taken aback and confused, the two hosts couldn't understand what was going on when the studio's atmosphere changed in an instant.

"I'm so sorry everyone, for the time being, we're going to have to leave the studios," Rachel said quickly.

Roger then added: "Thank you, enjoy whatever you're doing for the rest of the day, I think we are going to have to go."

The hosts then said goodbye to Harpreet and thanked her for coming on the show, but she looked just as confused as the two hosts – and viewers at home felt exactly the same too.

Taking to Twitter to speculate after the show was pulled from screens, one viewer penned: "Love the very real reaction to the alarm. You can see them thinking: "Is this really happening? Do we really have to move? *sigh* Oh OK then!" #BBCBreakfast."

Another quipped: "Very British response to the fire alarm going off mid-interview on @BBCBreakfast. Maybe stop apologising so much and evacuate as the announcement suggest."

"How NOT to react to a fire alarm on #BBCBreakfast this morning…" said a third person.

A fourth added: "The emergency plan to evacuate BBC Breakfast show didn’t really go to plan, was there even a plan? It maybe needs reviewing."

"BBC breakfast presenters acting like every school kid, ‘do we really have to leave?’. Yes, generally a fire alarm means you need to leave, quickly," said a fifth.

While a sixth person added: "Hope all ok at @BBCBreakfast #alarm."

The official BBC Breakfast Twitter account is yet to release a comment on what happened.

Daily Star has approached the BBC for comment after the incident.
