A Sunrise live cross was hilariously cut short after a surly security guard interrupted a chat between Sam Armytage and Restaurant and Catering Association chief executive Wes Lambert.
Armytage was interviewing Lambert outside of a Sydney hotel and only managed to get one question in before a security guard stepped in front of the camera and asked the filming crew to walk off the property.
“We just need everyone to walk off the property please,” said the security guard as he moved in between Lambert and the camera.
Lambert looked stunned as he said to Armytage: “We’re being asked to move off the property.”
“Oh, that’s not a good start Wes,” replied Armytage.
Watch the exchange below.
Well, this interview didn't go to plan 😆

The camera was removed from the tripod as Lambert and the film crew were escorted off the property by the security guard.
Nervously laughing, Armytage said: “Goodness me, there’s a very angry security guard walking around.”
“We’ll go and check that Wes is OK,” she said. “Not that we were doing anything wrong.”
It’s understood the Sunrise interview had been given the go ahead from the hotel to film on the property, however, the security guard had not received that important piece of information.
