Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Good Morning Britain turned chaotic rapidly this morning as gunshots went off during a US presenter's segment forcing him to run and hide for cover.

ITV's US journalist Noel Philip's was seen looking shocked and then running for cover after gunshots could be heard behind him while reporting on the protests in Minnesota.

Protestors have taken to the streets following Daunte Wright's death after a female police officer says she "accidentally" shot him – claiming she was meant to reach for her taser.

Noel told viewers: "Minnesota is in a state of emergency, despite a curfew ordering protestors off the street.

"You can sense an escalation amid a growing crisis."

He then added: "And as we were filming, this happened."

The camera then panned to footage of Noel looking very nervous as gunshots were fired nearby.

Things rapidly got even scarier as a man could be heard yelling, "get out now" as Noel then ran from the shot.

Noel said: "We heard 20 to 30 gunshots fired from a group of men towards police."

The journalist revealed, later on, he was wearing "body armour" as he reported what was going on.

After the gunshots stopped, Noel bravely returned to his job as he appeared outside a supermarket that had been broken into and looted from.

He told viewers: "We saw gunshots being fired, and as a precaution while doing this job we tend to wear body armour to protect ourselves."

Noel then unzipped his puffer jacket to reveal he had a bulletproof vest on to keep him as safe as possible.

Wright, 20, was shot dead on Sunday afternoon after he and his girlfriend were pulled over by cops over what police say was an expired car registration.

Officers said they learned Wright had an outstanding warrant out against him.

In bodycam footage, a struggle between the officer and Wright can be seen as she shouts "taser, taser, taser" before shooting him.

The officer claims she was supposed to pull out her taser and the fatal shot was an "accident".
