Dan Walker makes excuse to ‘avoid’ BBC Breakfast after latest show suggestion backfires

Dan Walker reveals technique to keep his tie straight

Dan Walker, 43, was taken aback after it appeared his hilarious suggestion for his BBC Breakfast colleagues might actually happen, so much so that he tried to get out of Monday’s show. The idea surfaced last week, after Dan propositioned the on-air team about doing a dance to the admittedly rather catchy BBC News soundtrack, which left weather presenter Carol Kirkwood alarmed.

I think I’m coming down with something…

The host had come across a TikTok which saw three dancers perform a routine to the music, and Dan believed it’d be a great opportunity for the morning team to follow suit and create their own version to give viewers a little pick-me-up to start the week off right.

After fans begged them to do it, it looks like it might actually happen much to Dan’s horror.

The flagship show producer Richard Frediani shared the video to his own Twitter account and teased the upcoming BBC Breakfast routine.

“Will @louiseminchin, @mrdanwalker, @NinaWarhurst, @sallynugent [email protected] give it a go on Monday ….?” he queried.

“The team behind it will be on #BBCBreakfast just before 7am.”

Looking forward to meeting the three dancers behind the viral hit that got his attention, Dan was less than impressed when he realised he might have to actually bust some dance moves on-air.

“I think I’m coming down with something…” he penned with a worried face before quickly clarifying it wasn’t Covid.

“P.S. not that!” he added.

“You’ll have to be nice to me in the morning as it’s quite a busy evening / early morning #SuperBowl.”

Louise Minchin also responded: “Ahhh let me think about that….. for a very LONG time!!” 

Fans rushed to the comments section to cheer them all on, eager for Dan to make good on his original tweet.

“I have been waiting for this to happen. Don’t let the side down,” one laughed.

Another said: “Really hope so! I’ll be disappointed if they don’t.”

“Come on Dan… you know you want to. You suggested it anyway,” a third giggled.

A fourth joked: “You’ve been secretly practicing all weekend and are ready to go!”

Others were more concerned how exhausted the presenter would be after covering this year’s Super Bowl, which began at 11:30pm yesterday and finished at 3am this morning.

“You’re surely not doing the game which will end at 3am – isn’t that when your alarm goes off?!” one seemed alarmed.

“Why you don’t take the day off from #BBCBreakfast,” urged a second.

A second worried: “You’re going to be so tired!”

But for now, viewers eagerly await to see if the studio team will spoil them with their own rendition!

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One.
