Dan Walker: BBC Breakfast star speaks out after Sally Nugent's hilarious 'willie' remark

Dan Walker has waded in on a discussion about his BBC Breakfast co-star and sports correspondent, Sally Nugent. Fans of the morning programme were floored when the sports reporter said “Willie” on Tuesday’s instalment of the show. In fact, the side-splitting moment led one viewer to comment on Dan’s expression at the time of the incident. On Twitter, the individual wrote: “Dan Walker’s face when Sally Nugent said, ‘We love Willie on this show’.”

Responding to the tickled viewer, the 42-year-old journalist joked about the situation and how his co-host Louise Minchin was oblivious to it all.

“I was tempted but then I released our next story was about fertility treatment and I had to be sensible,” he began.

“I don’t think Sally knew she’d said it and, to her credit Louise Minchin missed it completely.”

Commenting on his post, 50-year-old Louise replied: “Thank goodness.”

Sally had been reporting on sporting matters when she turned her attention to Irish jockey, Willie Mullins.

Following a story about Kash Ali’s six-month ban from boxing, she said: “Good news for Willie Mullins though, we love Willie on this programme.”

Martin tweeted about the programme’s Organised Crime Group, praising the team on a “phenomenal performance”.

He penned: “Phenomenal performance across the OCG team tonight. Not much else you can add after that episode.

“[I] don’t want to hint at spoilers, got a feeling a few folk in meltdown. Two more to go.”

Responding to the 34-year-actor in view of his 559,000 followers, Dan jested: “You’re on thin ice fella… wafer thin.”

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays on BBC One at 6am.
