A VIDEO of TV host Emily Maitlis looking exasperated during a Brexit interview has gone viral after social media commentators said she captured ‘the mood of a nation’.

The Newsnight presenter was seen giving a withering stare as shadow trade secretary Barry Gardiner tried to explain Labour’s position. Viewers also said Ms Maitlis appeared to make a ‘side-eye’ glance of frustration during the BBC Two broadcast which followed Tuesday night’s Commons Brexit vote.

Cutting in on Mr Gardiner, she said: ‘People are literally pulling their hair out tonight’. Marc McArdle was typical of many Twitter users who shared the clip. He wrote: ‘Emily Maitlis captures the mood of just about everybody’.
