BBC Breakfast: Luxmy Gopal thrills viewers as she replaces Sally Nugent

BBC Breakfast viewers were surprised to see the 'beautiful' Luxmy Gopal fill Sally Nugent's seat on the show today.

BBC Breakfast viewers were happy to see Luxmy Gopal on the programme today (December 28).

The presenter joined Strictly Come Dancing star Dan Walker on the iconic red sofa to present the day’s news.

It marked a change in routine for viewers, however.

Dan usually presents the programme between Monday and Wednesday with Sally Nugent.

However, on Tuesday, Sally was replaced with Luxmy.

As a result, viewers rushed to Twitter to share their surprise at the line-up change.

Some even suggested that the BBC should consider making Luxmy a permanent fixture on the sofa.

“You look awesome this morning Luxmy, wish you were a permanent fixture on the sofa,” said one viewer.

“A real treat to see you back on the Breakfast sofa, Luxmy,” tweeted a third.

Are you going to be joining Dan on a regular basis? Hope so.

A fourth entertained fan said: “I had to look twice… Nice start to our day. Are you going to be joining Dan on a regular basis? Hope so.”

What has Dan Walker been up to?

Viewers were happy to see Dan had a pal by his side today after he presented the show on Monday alone.

Taking to Twitter at the time, he made reference to his solo appearance.

He said: “I’m a lonesome cowboy on the @BBCBreakfast sofa and am working my way through some mince pies and miniature heroes.”

However, he seemed markedly in higher spirits today, tweeting: “I’ve got a friend this morning.”
