ITV’s Good Morning Britain has its fair share of bizarre interviews but this one may be the strangest yet.
This morning Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid met a human robot named Sophia who managed to freak out both the presenters and the viewers.
Sophia appeared on the programme with robotics expert Dr David Hanson for a very unusual and unique interview.

Susanna could not believe what she was seeing, confessing:
She is sitting next to me blinking – I’m slightly afraid of her, oh my goodness.
Piers was equally unsettled exclaiming:
You’re a little freak, aren’t you?
In an attempt to get over the shock that they were interviewing a human robot, the duo began to question Sophia about her love life.

When asked if she was single Sophia replied:
I’m technically just a little more than a year old – a bit young to worry about romance.
My ideal partner is a super-wise, compassionate, super-genius, ideally.
She has clearly been programmed with high expectations then, and any outside hope Piers had has been left in tatters.
