‘End of an era!’ Louise Minchin reacts as BBC Breakfast colleague bids emotional farewell

The mum of two left viewers stunned back in June after she shared she would be leaving BBC Breakfast for good.

She said: “There’s something I wanted to tell you about. It will be, this year, 20 years since I first presented this programme and since then I’ve felt part of a huge, enormous BBC Breakfast family, which includes everyone who works here, every one of the team and every one of you who watches the programme.

“I’ve loved being a part of it. But, there is a but, you know about the but, I’ve decided that it is time that I stop setting my alarm for 3.40am, sometimes when I’m feeling really rebellious 3.46am in the morning and I’m going to be leaving the programme.

“It’s not going to be for a while and just before anything else I wanted to thank everyone who is watching for your loyalty, for your support over all those years, I have absolutely loved being part of it, I will really miss it but it is time now to stop.”

She added: “My children can’t remember a time when I wasn’t working on the programme.”
