Dan departed from BBC Breakfast in May after almost six years of fronting the show and now holds the position as anchor on Channel 5's evening news show, 5 News.

The 45-year-old opened up about his reasons for moving to Channel 5 during one of his final shows on BBC Breakfast. He told his co-host Sally: "I think sometimes opportunities come along and you have to grab them, don't you?

"And I've never ever been motivated by money in any job that I've ever taken, and even though I love BBC Breakfast, everybody that works on the show, this is a fantastic opportunity to work with a brilliant team at Channel 5 and also go and make some other programmes outside of news."

Earlier this month, the BBC announced that Jon Kay would be joining Sally Nugent to host the morning programme.

"Jon Kay will become the new regular presenter on BBC Breakfast from Monday to Wednesday, effective immediately," the BBC said.

The presenter has over 25 years of journalism experience and has previously worked on BBC 5 Live, BBC Points West and BBC News. He's also reported from Iraq, South Africa, and USA.
