BBC Breakfasts Jon Kay says Sally Nugent helps him dress due to health issue

In July 2022, the Yorkshire-born journalist replaced Dan Walker, who left the show after six years to work on Channel 5.

Despite being in the role for almost a year, the father-of-three confessed that he has to have a large caffeine fix ahead of work.

He shared: “I drink a ludicrous amount of coffee every morning. I have one when I get in about a quarter to five.

“And we have our meeting, and then I’ll have another one before we go on air, and then have four or five more during the programme.”

Jon and Sally, 51, hosted from the brand-new BBC Breakfast studio in Media City, Salford this morning but were criticised by viewers about the set.

Jon shared a photo of the team with his 2000 followers, captioning the snap: “On air! Our fab technical and production teams have worked so hard to get this new studio ready for #bbcbreakfast.

“It’s a fantastic space and will give us loads more options to tell and explain stories for our 5 million viewers every morning. @sallynugenttv @johnwatsonsport @benmboulos.”

One user on Twitter wrote: “I won’t lie, the studio looks tiny!! Are you all going to fit or is it an optical illusion?!” (sic)

Another commented: “Why does the Breakfast sofa always have to be so uncomfortable? (The others always had a bad rep for that and that one looks no better).”

However, some were fans of the updated set, leaving replies such as: “Loving the new studio!” and “It looks fantastic. Well done to all the team”.

Sally also commented on her workspace to the BBC, saying: “The new studio is a wonderful addition to BBC Breakfast, and I can’t wait to host the first live morning show on 26 June.”

The multipurpose studio, updated for the first time in over a decade, features a rotating 180 degrees sofa that can be adjusted for various shoots.

The set features 83 different lights, large tower screens, a seven-metre long “catwalk” for graphics and other media.

It also features seven cameras, including one exterior camera that will show the crew, and will be shared with the BBC Sport team.

The broadcaster revealed that the new look was “part of their strategy to introduce new studios to be used by multiple departments”.

The space will be used more than 20 hours daily, 365 days a year.
