"Slice of normality for you on #BBCBreakfast this morning... @louiseminchin and I are back (at a safe distance) in the middle of the sofa," Dan tweeted. "@sallynugent is in the studio & the regional news is back for the first time in five months."
Sally, 49, also shared her excitement about being back with her colleagues – of course, at a safe distance. "So good to be back with the gang in the @BBCBreakfast studio today," she said.

Viewers were quick to reveal their joy seeing the three back together, with one writing: "Brilliant and much better… never liked our Louise at the end with the laptop perched on a little side table." Another remarked: "Sally looks incredible. Welcome back x." A third post read: "Great to see you back in the studio Sally."
Since March, both Dan and Louise have been hosting the morning show as usual from the BBC Breakfast sofa, however, they have been seated apart to keep some social distancing.
Meanwhile, the mini reunion comes shortly after Dan thrilled fans after sharing a sneak peek at his brand new book, Remarkable People: Extraordinary Stories of Everyday Lives.
Captioning the image, Dan wrote: "Well... nearly finished writing ‘Remarkable People’ and now the publishers have sent through the front cover. VERY EXCITING! I can’t wait for you to read it. There are some incredible people in there."
