Janette Manrara apologised to a Morning Live guest today following a gaffe with her baby monitor.

On Thursday’s show (June 20), Janette looked mortified when her co-host Gethin Jones halted a discussion after noticing the monitor was going off.

Janette is a first-time mum to her adorable daughter Lyra, who she has with husband Aljaz Skorjanec.

During a segment in which financial expert Laura Pomfret was discussing overdrafts, Gethin stepped in as muffled sounds were heard.

He said: “Hang on a minute, let’s stop the baby monitor on Janette’s phone before we carry on. Stop try to hide it.”

Janette looked embarrassed as she threw her hands around her face.

She said: “It’s because I opened the WhatsApp group!”

Turning to Laura, Janette added: “I’m so sorry.”

Laura replied: “Is she okay?” to which Janette confirmed: “She’s all good, she’s fine.”

Gethin then said: “Let’s start again!”

Hang on a minute, let’s stop the baby monitor on Janette’s phone before we carry on.

Former Strictly Come Dancing stars Janette and Aljaz became parents last July when they welcomed daughter Lyra. Aljaz recently opened up about parenting and their life now with a child.

The dancer has taken a step back from some work commitments to be a stay-at-home dad while Janette continues with her TV jobs.

Recently, Aljaz addressed the backlash he has received over the family’s decision. Aljaz told Heat magazine of the backlash: “I’ve always been good with not reading the comments. I feel like if you work in the world of entertainment, because of my talent, now all of a sudden my private life is there for everyone to judge or have an opinion on.

“All I ever want to do is to be a good dad and husband, and that to me is a priority and I’m going to do that in the best possible way that I know how to do.”

Little Lyra will turn one next month.
