Dan Walker, 45, and BBC meteorologist Matt Taylor, 45, have shared a poignant exchange on social media as Dan bids farewell to BBC Breakfast. Matt posted a sentimental message to Dan, recalling all the “fun” times they had while working together.
Weatherman Matt wrote on Monday night: “We say [goodbye] to my BBC Breakfast twin @mrdanwalker tomorrow.
“From walking behind Rory McIlroy on the first hole at the British Open, to fish and chips in Llandudno, waking him with a tea in Enniskillen and video messages during Strictly.
“Kind. Generous. Fun!
“I’ll miss you fella.”
Dan was clearly touched by the message and responded: “I love you too.”
To which Matt pleaded: “Then don’t leave us!!!
“Happy to phone at 3am each morning should you miss it too much.”
Today is set to be an emotional day for Dan as he hosts his final BBC Breakfast after being a fixture on the show since 2016.
Dan is leaving the BBC to join Channel 5 as the lead presenter on 5 News.
As he headed into the BBC studios this morning, Dan revealed he had less than three hours sleep before his last day.
He said in a clip shared to his 274,000 Instagram followers: “Here we go then, final stroll into BBC Breakfast, it’s a glorious morning here in Salford.
“I’m armed with cakes for the team who have been an absolute pleasure to work with over the last six years.”
