- Flashing lights and smoke fill the studio to replicate a nightclub in the embarrassing clip posted on Twitter
- The panelists had been discussing the reopening of Australian nightclubs with new social distancing measures, including clubbers dancing in their chairs
- Labour MP John Ashworth, Tory MP Nicky Morgan and British diplomat Jonathan Powell all took part in the impromptu studio dance session
This is the embarrassing moment Robert Peston tried to liven up a TV shoot with an impromptu dance session, turning the studio into a cheesy 'nightclub'.
The ITV Political Editor can be seen dancing along to the beat with his guests in the studio while disco lights flash.
The panelists had been discussing the reopening of nightclubs with new social distancing rules in Australia, where plans are said to include encouraging clubbers to dance from their chairs.
Peston's guests got into the spirit of the discussion when the lights started flashing and smoke spread through the studio, replicating a real nightclub in the studio.
Labour MP John Ashworth can be seen getting into the spirit of the new rules as the Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Social Care wildly waves his arms over his head.
Tory MP Nicky Morgan can also be seen getting in to the music from home.
The former Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport turned into the show via video call.
The clip shows the Loughborough MP smiling and swaying her shoulders to the beat as she is sat in front of a bookcase.
But British diplomat and former Downing Street Chief of Staff, Jonathan Powell, looks on seemingly unamused as Peston shakes his head to the beat.
It is a far cry from the more serious topics usually discussed on ITV's Peston, which airs on Wednesday nights.
The clip was broadcast live to audiences on Twitter last night, and ITV director Erron Gordon shared the clip on social media on Thursday.
It shows the camera panning around the various guests and is understood to have been filmed during a break in filming.
GMB series director Gordon wrote: 'Sick new club in Shepherd’s Bush opened tonight #Peston.'
Viewers branded the clip 'cringe' and joked that the Peston studio was 'the only club in West London where you can wear trainers'.
