British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was filmed retreating into a fridge to avoid a TV reporter.
The incident occurred on Wednesday when he was confronted by Good Morning Britain’s reporter Jonathan Swain during an early morning visit to Modern Milkman, a business in Yorkshire.
In a viral video circulating online one of Johnson’s aides can be seen mouthing “oh for f***’s sake” as Swain approached the British Prime Minister. Back at the studio, the ITV show’s hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid appeared shocked by the foul language.
During the exchange, Swain asked Mr Johnson to “deliver on your promise to talk to Piers and Susanna”. “Morning prime minister, would you come on Good Morning Britain, prime minister?” Mr Swain is heard saying.
“I’ll be with you in a second,” Mr Johnson replied, before walking into a large fridge.
“He’s gone into the fridge!” Mr Morgan exclaimed as the UK PM disappeared into the freezer stacked with milk bottles.

On Monday, Johnson was accused of grabbing a journalist’s phone and putting it into his pocket to avoid looking at an image of a boy sleeping on a hospital floor.
