BBC newsreader Victoria Derbyshire has breathed a sigh of relief after her colleague was rescued from a lift at the broadcasting house today. News presenter Martine Croxall, 52, shared how she was trying to be rescued in time to make her live hosting segment, before revealing that it took four men to rescue her from Radio One’s lift.
In view of her 31,400 followers, Martine revealed that the segment would have to go ahead without her as she was indisposed.
She tweeted; “Due on air at 11am but stuck in lift so you might have to start without me…#BBCNews.”
She went on to add that a senior BBC producer was attempting to save her.
“@Daveabpearson is trying to rescue me,” Martine added.
Others asked whether she was with Secretary of State for Housing, Michael Gove, who was also reportedly stuck in a lift at the BBC today.
Mets69_86 commented: “Count your blessings, at least it’s not with Michael Gove… Hope you’re free soon!!”
Dace Carter also chipped in: “I would get advice from Michael Gove … probably the only advice I would seek from him,” alongside a winking face emoji.
George Sivell asked Martine: “Was it the same lift that tried to take Michael Gove off air?”
