Live television can be an obstacle, as Mel Doyle well knows.

And her experience and professionalism put her in good stead while reading the news last night on Channel 7, when a part of the set collapsed off screen. 

The loud bang was not ignored by viewers who quickly took to Twitter to find out what happened. 

Doyle even managed to tweet out a joke after the incident.
