Dan Walker, 44, has been one of BBC Breakfast’s man presenters since 2016, and knows the ins and outs of how the show works and what’s required for each segment to ensure the programme runs smoothly. So when a viewer had a question about why the hosts have to pause before handing over to the local news, he was well equipped to answer.
After a brief moments pause, Sally broke the silence as she said: “You’re watching BBC Breakfast,” as her co-star chuckled away in the background.
Dan apologised for interrupting her as he said he thought they were going to Carol, not continuing with the programme.
“Ok, let’s go to Carol. We were talking about Carol so we might as well go straight to her,” the sports journalist remarked.
Displayed on the big screen in the studio, the forecaster was also seen laughing at the awkward blunder.
After they all said good morning to one another, Dan said: “Sally was doing full formalities there, Carol.”
Defending her co-star and hitting back at the father of three, Carol said: “Sally can do no wrong in my eyes.”
After addressing the mishap in the studio, the meteorologist continued with the latest weather conditions.
BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One.
