BBC Breakfast viewers all say the same thing as Dan Walker replaced by familiar face

BBC Breakfast viewers all said the same thing as Dan Walker was replaced by a familiar face this morning. 

Tuesday marked the Strictly star’s last day presenting the programme after joining in 2016. 

The Beeb have a string of people who are stepping in to cover Dan for the time being, but no full-time replacement has been announced yet.

Today TV presenter Jon Kay, 52, stepped in for Dan alongside Sally Nugent.

And it seems that fans at home would love for the journalist to host the BBC show full time.

Many have taken to Twitter to share their love and support for Jon.  

One tweeted: “Would be good if @jonkay01 replaces lovely Dan.”

Another said: “Hope Jon gets the job full time , he has done the graft behind the scenes and would be a superb replacement for Dan, wish him luck.”

A third added: “I think John Kay should get the job..he's such a good choice x.”

Jon is a TV presenter, newsreader and journalist who is best known for his work on BBC news.

He has presented several programmes for the BBC including Drive on 5 live, the BBC Two environmental series It’s Not Easy Being Green and a documentary about bread-making for BBC Four.

He became a BBC News at Six correspondent during the London Olympics in 2012 and an election correspondent during the 2015 general election campaign.

He also is a regular presenter on BBC Breakfast, stepping in to cover for Dan Walker and Charlie Stayt.

There has been plenty of speculation about who will take over from Dan.

Earlier this week it was revealed that BBC Breakfast had 'announced' his replacement ahead of his last day.

Labrokes spokesman Alex Apati told the Star: “It’s looking increasingly likely that BBC chiefs have found Dan Walker’s replacement.

“And he’s no stranger to the Breakfast family, with Jon Kay pulling away from the chasing pack.

"Gethin Jones was favourite to get the gig once upon a time but has seen his odds drift over the last few days, and it now looks as though it’s Kay’s role if he wants it."

It comes after Dan announced that he was leaving the BBC for a new role at Channel 5 last month.

The mega-bucks three-year deal will see him host the news at 5pm four days a week – and six hours a year of prime-time shows.
