It's definitely something you don't want to see while you're sat enjoying your tea and toast of a morning, but it's pretty damn funny as well.
One of the funnier elements of the pandemic so far - and there haven't been that many - has been the switch to online interviews, and the potential for the unexpected outside of a sterile studio setting.
Well, as the 39-year-old actor started her interview this morning, she had no idea that her dogs had other plans.
After all, they don't know how successful This Morning is, do they?
Smith was attempting to discuss her new reality show Pooch Perfect but viewers couldn't take their eyes off the two pooches in the background who were attempting to mount one another.
Ever the professionals, Holly and Phil tried to keep things on track, but eventually Holly had to point out that her dogs were 'getting a bit too friendly' in view of the cameras.
Luckily, the viewers of the show - who are used to things falling apart live on air - thought the frisky canines were hilarious, rather than offensive.
One amused viewer tweeted: "OMG Sheridan Smith's doggos just started shagging on live tv... see it all on #ThisMorning"
Another wrote: "Definitely some 'doggy style' going on now #ThisMorning."
Very good, but it's the obvious joke, isn't it?
A third said: "Those dogs have been the best thing so far on #ThisMorning."
Smith - who owns six dogs - did eventually get to discuss the new show a bit with the hosts, free from distractions.
She said she 'can't believe' she's been asked to present the show alongside her co-host, a dog called Stanley.
Basically, the premise of the BBC One show is that 16 professional dog groomers will compete against one another in a series of doggy-themed challenges in order to decide who is the best of the bunch.
Britain's premier dog groomer. Now that's a title that everyone wants.
Smith said: "This is my first prime-time hosting gig, I can't believe I got asked to be honest! But I am a huge dog lover and the time just seemed right, I had just had my son, Billy, so it was an absolute honour to be asked.
"Being the host I got to know each contestant really well, I am a people person and I just love getting to know people.
"I became really attached and I wanted them all to win! I hated even just announcing who was going home each week, so I was thankful it wasn't my job to judge them."
Pooch Perfect starts on Thursday 7 January at 8pm on BBC One.
