Louise Minchin is presenting her last episode of BBC Breakfast today after almost 20 years on the famous red sofa. However, the presenter almost didn’t make it into the office, let alone the studio, after her work pass expired a day early.
Ahead of her emotional last day, Louise took to Twitter to thank viewers for their support over the years.
True to form, the 53-year-old snapped a selfie in the studio with her co-star Dan Walker and shared it online.
“Good morning and thank you for all your love support and messages xxxx,”(sic) the BBC star wrote next to her picture, in view of her 218,500 followers.
“Last #sofaselfie #BBCBreakfast,” she sadly added.
Dan then shared the post on his own account and detailed her frustrating morning, plagued with technical issues.
“Classic BBC magic this morning…
“Louise’s pass has already been cancelled so she couldn’t get in the building!
“When she eventually got in… her computer login had expired #BBCBreakfast,” he explained.
Many took to the comments section of the post to share their thoughts and wish Louise well ahead of the new chapter in her life.
“Love that! No sentiment with technology! Poor Lou,” one user named MandyMoos tweeted.
“Haha! Sods law! Good luck on your last day @louiseminchin X,” added ITV weatherman Chris Page.
“Good luck Louise, you will be missed! x,” Twitter user Jazzyjjo89 remarked.
Last night, Dan shared a string of pictures of the pair online to mark their time together.
“I can’t believe it has come about so quickly,” he tweeted in view of his 722,700 followers.
“After 5-and-a-half years sharing a sofa with this wonderful woman… tomorrow is @louiseminchin’s last day on #BBCBreakfast.
“I hope you can join us to say ‘goodbye’.”
The 44-year-old posted photos of the presenting duo on set and behind-the-scenes.
When the TV star announced she was leaving the show earlier this year, Louise said she was looking forward to turning her alarm off.
“I’ll be having lots of lie-ins. That’s what I’m most excited about right now,” the presenter said at the time.
Louise had to get up at 3.45am in order to make it to work on time for the 6am live show.
Sharing a picture of her phone alarm on social media last night, she said: “Goodness knows when I will set my alarm for this time again…”
The BBC have not yet confirmed who will take her place on the sofa.
