Dan Walker: BBC host speaks out after viewers blast him for being 'in No10’s ‘pocket'

Alongside the post he shared a black and white photo of himself hiding behind the morning’s scripts, looking wide-eyed.

But his loyal fanbase had his back, rushing to the comments section to share their thoughts and support.

One encouraged: “You will never please everyone, I know you know that! Just keep doing your thing and being you! I definitely couldn’t do your job! Fancy teaching my 8 and 9 year olds????”

“Don’t you ever think about just turning off the alarm and hiding under the duvet?” a second joked.

A third said: “They get exactly the same & more on “the other side”..some people need to grow up & shouldn’t be allowed to watch tv!! #ignorethemuppets.”
