TV Expert Robert Kelly And His Viral Mischievous Children Have Returned To BBC News

At a time when the world needs a bit of light relief, everyone's favourite family have returned to save the day.

It's hard to believe it's been three years since Professor Robert Kelly had his interview gatecrashed by his two tiny toddlers. You know the one I'm talking about.

The 47-year-old was appearing on the BBC via video link to talk about South Korea's president Park Geun-hye being ousted from power - only for his two young children to come storming into the room.

The family became an overnight sensation, with Robert and his kids the subject of an endless stream of memes.


Well, they're back, and their two kids are still up to their old tricks.

The family was being interviewed about life in South Korea during the coronavirus pandemic, with the presenter asking how they keep their lively children entertained - a task that Robert describes as 'tough', which by the looks of it, is an understatement.

Clearly bored by the answer their mum Jung-a Kim is giving, the two siblings - who can see themselves on the monitor - start playing up; fidgeting; poking their dad's face; ruffling his hair; gnawing on his hand; and even smacking the microphone.


But despite the best efforts of Robert and his wife at keeping their offspring under control, at one point the little lad just says 'I've had enough' and jumps off his mum's lap, clambers underneath her chair and does one - returning later with a video game in hand.

Good to see they've learnt their lesson, eh?

Now, yes, while it's clearly a difficult task trying to keep these two sat still for even a minute, I am glad they're back, and I'm not the only one.


Commenting on the post, one fan wrote: "Hahaha. That Clip is one of the cutest things on internet."

Another beamed: "Really, thank you thank you thank you. The kids are wonderful."

While a third put: "The kind of joy we all needed. Thanks, @Robert_E_Kelly and your lively family."

Speaking previously about his and his family's viral fame, Robert told the Guardian he couldn't belief what was going on.


He said: "For two weeks we were the most famous family on Earth.

"I guess that's an achievement? I don't know, it's still just weird more than anything else. It's nice to think we made people happy, but it's not really the kind of thing you'd ask for."

Let's all bring some positivity, support and fun to anyone who might find themselves in isolation as a result of the coronavirus spread. Need some entertainment? Join Isolation Nation:
