The BBC Breakfast star left co-host Dan Walker shocked

Louise Minchin shocked viewers – and her co-host Dan Walker – earlier this month when she revealed she still has her Christmas tree up at home. And on Wednesday, she admitted she still hasn't taken it down!

The BBC Breakfast star revealed that her tree is still going strong, and she has no plans to get rid of it just yet, despite tradition dictating that you should take them down on the 12th day after Christmas as a day sooner or later is considered unlucky.

The newsreader previously admitted that the festive spirit was still very much alive at her house and that she is even tempted to see if her tree can make it until the end of lockdown 3.0.

Sharing a photo of her decorated tree on Instagram, Louise wrote: "Morning, and to confirm much to @mrdanwalker's horror the Christmas tree is still going strong."

"I'm tempted to see if the tree will make it through to the end of #lockdown3," she later added. It cheers me up! I hope you're all doing ok."
