After officially waving goodbye to BBC Breakfast, Steph McGovern has taken to Twitter to thank her fans for their support over the years. The popular reporter, who has landed her own news show on Channel 4 this spring, appeared on Wednesday morning's show to say farewell to her colleagues. Sharing a video of her 'best bits' montage, Steph wrote: "Aw - my last appearance on @BBCBreakfast in all its mushy glory." She added: "Thanks again to everyone who has supported me over the years on the show. It was a real privilege to work on such a brill programme. #thankyou."

On the show, Steph will be joined by a different, well-known co-host each week for a lively look at the topics of the day, as well as consumer affairs, fun features and lots of interaction with the viewers - all filmed in front of a live audience.

Steph previously announced the arrival of her first baby via her Twitter page in November. "Well hello world, just surfaced to let you know that we now have a daughter," she wrote. "Born on Monday morning just as @BBCBreakfast was wrapping up. We're all fine and dandy. Just getting used to the Eau de sick/poo I am now regularly wearing. #babylife." The little girl is the first child for Steph and her partner, however they have yet to release her name or a photo.
