David, and Louise’s dad Patrick, took off their masks, leaving the star to burst out laughing and hug the pair as Dan said: “Louise obviously knows these two very well!” 

Fans have been sad to see Louise go after appearing on the show for 20 years, and unfortunately it didn’t go down entirely without a hitch! Dan revealed that his co-star wasn’t able to get into the building for her last broadcast, tweeting: “Classic BBC magic this morning… Louise’s pass has already been cancelled so she couldn’t get in the building! When she eventually got in… her computer login had expired.”

Louise also shared a final selfie, writing: “Good morning and thank you for all your love support and messages xxxx last #sofaselfie #BBCBreakfast."

Taking to Twitter to say farewell to the presenter, one person wrote: “Thank you Louise, you will be very much missed your brilliant partnership with Dan. Having had the pleasure of being interviewed a number of times on the sofa such a warm & insightful journalist. Good luck for the next adventure!”
