Where is Sally Nugent today?
The broadcaster, 50, usually hosts the show Monday to Wednesday from 6am until 9am.
Neither the BBC or Sally have given a reason for her absence.
It is likely she is just taking some annual leave, but this hasn’t been confirmed.
Who has replaced Sally Nugent on the BBC Breakfast show?
Fear not, Sally’s role is in good hands.
Joining Dan Walker as co-host on the show today is Nina Warhurst.
She is currently the business and consumer presenter on BBC Breakfast, so she is known by viewers.
Tweeting about Sally’s replacement, Dan said: “Good morning. It’s a busy old show on #BBCBreakfast this morning. Nice to be back on the sofa with @NinaWarhurst.”
When will Sally Nugent return?
It is yet to be revealed when Sally will be back on the famous red sofa.
As she has been off for two days so far, she is likely to be away from her post tomorrow (January 12, 2022) as well.
This means she could be back on BBC Breakfast next Monday (January 17, 2022).
When did Sally Nugent start presenting BBC Breakfast?
Sally joined BBC Breakfast on a freelance basis back in 2011.
She was previously known for filling in when the show’s main presenters were off.
But now she now has the coveted Monday to Wednesday slot.
Speaking about her promotion Sally said in a statement: “I’m absolutely thrilled.
“It’s an honour to take the reins from Louise and be part of the UK’s most watched breakfast show.”
What other shows has Sally Nugent presented?
Sally is known for her documentaries.
In 2020 she fronted a series of high profile exclusive interviews and prime-time BBC documentaries, including Marcus Rashford on his quest to end child food poverty.
That story won her Scoop of the Year award at the 2021 Royal Television Society Journalism Awards.
