Sharing the news via Channel 5's official Twitter account earlier this month, Dan said: "In the next few weeks, I'm going to be leaving BBC Breakfast and moving to 5 News and to Channel 5. I'm really excited but this has also been a massive decision for me because I love BBC Breakfast, I love working alongside Sally and I love the team there. 

"But Channel 5 came with big ambitions, with big plans. And I don't think opportunities like this come around very often. And I can't wait."

Following speculation over the reasons motivating Dan's exit, he was forced to clarify the truth behind his decision just two weeks ago.

Posting a scenic photograph to his Instagram, he wrote the caption: "It is often the case that the simple truth is much duller than all the made-up 'moles' and so-called 'sources' claim."

He continued: "In a nutshell… a bloke with a really good job, which he loved, got offered a really good job somewhere else which provided an amazing new challenge and the opportunity to make some exciting telly.

"The bloke explained to his current employers that, even though it was a tough decision, he had decided to leave. They are now trying their best to allow him to make a dignified departure. Have a lovely Monday. I'm off to have some toast."
