The BBC Breakfast stars are gearing up to try a new way of working as Covid restrictions are eased.
Sally Nugent and Dan Walker, the Monday-Wednesday daytime hosts, will soon be able to sit a little closer together on the iconic red sofa.
Things have been going well for Sally – after joining the group in October – as she is currently sitting with co-host Dan on the show.
They have been friends for almost two decades, both starting out on regional TV shows.
Next month, the pair will also be able to sit a little closer together as Covid restrictions ease.
It means they’ll ditch their laptops and be able to use the hidden display in their coffee table for updates, and is also said to look a bit more friendly sitting on the red sofa. .
But it has a flip side to Dan. He said: “Sally’s coffee is much stronger than Louise’s coffee. I can’t stand the smell of coffee. I have never had a drink in my life.”
But he added: “The best thing about working with Sally, and this is like Louise, is that it was never a fight. If you watch some combinations on TV, they are vying for space or limelight. “

Sally, who said that Dan’s annoying habit of playing Wordle for 30 seconds between shows, was an obvious choice to be the presenter as she was already popular with viewers thanks to sports reports. and in-depth interviews with big names.
After graduating from college, Sally worked as a reporter at BBC Merseyside Radio before switching to BBC North West Tonight as a sports presenter and did his first television interview with Wayne Rooney when he was 16 years old.
She joined the BBC TV show in 2003 and has been a co-host of Breakfast on the Red Sofa since 2011.
*Breakfast on BBC happens seven days a week from 6am on BBC1. Sally and Dan host Monday through Wednesday.
