Louise shared the summery photo to social media

Other fans wished Louise well and said they hoped she had enjoyed her holiday, but by far the biggest response was from fans expressing how glad they were that Louise would be returning to the programme on Monday.

Their comments included: "Not the same without you," "Looking forward to having you back Louise," and: "Hope you had a lovely break, it will be such a pleasure to have you back on breakfast again… it will be so sad when you finally leave."

Louise announced back in June that she will be stepping down from the programme in order to pursue new opportunities and get up a bit later in the day!

However, she hasn't clarified when exactly she will be leaving or who her replacement will be.

Her good friend, BBC Breakfast weather presenter Carol Kirkwood, has hinted at who she would like to step into Louise's shoes, however.

Speaking to the Radio Times, Carol said that if the choice was hers, she would pick the show's sports presenter, Sally Nugent.
