Dan and his co-presenter Louise Minchin have been the faces of BBC Breakfast for several years. Dan, 43, has been fronting the show from Monday to Wednesday since 2016 while Louise has been a regular anchor since 2006.

Dan has previously opened up about his role on BBC One programme and how it might affect his family.

"She thought it was going to be a disaster, me getting up that early, turning into a zombie," he said of his wife Sarah, during a chat with The Mirror. "We've got a dog and three kids, so if I slammed the door at 3.30am saying, 'Bye everyone,' it wouldn't work."
