Useful Phrases to Interrupt

Gaining the floor:
Sorry to interrupt, but…
Could I add something?
It’s often helpful to say the person’s name before “Could I add something?” This helps get the person’s attention and makes him/her stop talking.

After interrupting someone:
I’m sorry, you were saying.
I’m sorry, go ahead.
