Dan Walker: BBC Breakfast host addresses show mishap as he blames ‘big weekend’

BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker, 44, took to Twitter this morning, after an amusing incident on the show. A visual announcing that football pundit and former England striker Alan Shearer was coming up later, showed a picture of a dog in an England top instead.

Dan shared a screenshot of the still on the micro-blogging site.

“It was a big weekend,” he captioned the snap alongside several laughing emojis.

He also tagged the star into the post: “@alanshearer #BBCBreakfast.”

Clearly seeing the funny side, the former England captain replied with a laughing emoji and an England flag.

At the weekend, Dan, who has worked with Alan on numerous occasions, hosted a Euros viewing party for friends and family in his back garden.

The football-loving presenter set up a projector and fired up the BBQ for the event.

He took to Instagram to share some pictures of his set-up with his 186,000 followers.

Unfortunately, the positioning of his snacks and cutlery on the table blocked some of the TV screen.

Drawing attention to his error, he wrote online: “Hold on a minute… some of the PALS have just turned up and I’m not sure they appreciate the importance of the football [laughing emoji].”

Following the match, the father-of-three returned to the picture-sharing site to share his delight at England’s triumph.
