The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend is just over a week away and BBC Breakfast’s hosts have been discussing the monarch’s historic milestone throughout the week. However, viewers hit out at the coverage presented by Jon Kay and Sally Nugent on Wednesday as they branded it “out of touch” with the Britons who are struggling with the cost-of-living crisis. 

BBC Breakfast aired footage of jubilee celebrations up and down the country on the latest instalment of the programme. 

Clips of parades and events with resident waving their Union Jack flags to celebrate the monarch were shown to viewers. 

Sally and Jon welcomed event planner Liz Taylor onto the programme who provided her “top tips for the perfect Jubilee party”. 

As Liz gushed about previously attending the Queen’s garden parties, viewers took to social media to criticise the segment. 

@15_char_or_less fumed: “Oh come on #BBCBreakfast, loads of people can’t even afford to warm a tin of beans, let alone go out and buy ‘cheap’ Prosecco for a jubilee party. This segment is out of touch.” 

Wayne Valentine added: “This country is in a real s**t show and #BBCBreakfast is asking how your jubilee party is going to be.”

Benedict said: “#BBCbreakfast next Thursday and Friday we will have three hours of fawning and froth about [the Queen]. 

“Read the room BBC people are struggling with not having enough food on a normal day and you want pictures about what parties they are holding.”
