Dan Walker reacts to Sally Nugent’s BBC Breakfast replacement after 'lonesome' complaint

DAN WALKER has praised his new co-star Luxmy Gopal as she stepped into Sally Nugent's shoes on BBC Breakfast this morning. It comes after the Strictly Come Dancing star complained that he was left on his own on the famous red sofa yesterday.

Dan usually presents the programme between Monday and Wednesday with Sally Nugent, but the Christmas period has seen this routine change slightly.

It was confirmed earlier this year that Sally was replacing Dan’s former co-host Louise Minchin, following her exit from BBC Breakfast in September.

Sally shared her excitement over the news in a statement at the time.

She said: "I'm absolutely thrilled to become the new presenter of BBC Breakfast and bring the nation the latest news, top entertainment guests and stories that matter every week."

The presenter added: "It's an honour to take the reins from Louise."
