Louise Minchin was surprised with a video sharing the highlights from her career with the BBC on Wednesday’s Breakfast show which also featured messages from those she has interviewed and worked with. Naga Munchetty was one of those who wished Louise luck as she prepares for her next career move and left the host in tears with her kind words.

In the video, Naga remarked: “Louise, your strength, your determination, your utter brilliance as a triathlete and woman.

“I think you’re brilliant and I think you’re going to carry on being brilliant away from here.”

Naga wasn’t the only BBC host to bid farewell to Louise, with former colleague Jon Sopel adding: “Minchin, I can’t believe you’re leaving.

“After all those years together on News 24, News Channel and I think once even News 25.

“You’ve been fantastic and you will be sorely missed. I send you lots and lots of love. goodbye.”

“I hope you have the most fantastic morning this morning,” Charlie Stayt added while he was cycling.

“It has been an absolute joy doing BBC Breakfast with you.”

He later added: “Good luck,” before falling off his bike.

Meanwhile, her regular co-host Dan Walker paid tribute by donning an all-in-one swimsuit to go swimming in the Salford Quays.

“I would only do this for you,” he said popping on a floral yellow swimming cap. “I’m off to do triathlon stuff.”

As he got into the water he told Louise: “Keep being brilliant and keep reminding yourself the whatever it is, you can do it. Go Minchin!”

Sitting outside the BBC Breakfast studio with Dan, Louise was later surprised by appearances from her husband, dad, Sally Nugent and Matt Taylor.

Louise previously explained she would not miss the early morning alarm to get up for BBC Breakfast.

She told the Mirror Online: “This has been a decision a long time in coming.

“It involved lots of in-depth discussion with friends and family.

“My children are pleased for us as a family, I think, because I always used to say to them, ‘Oh, do you remember before I did BBC Breakfast?’”

Louise added: “And they’d say, ‘Not really.’ And then I realised that, actually, my daughters are 20 and 17, so of course they don’t remember life before BBC Breakfast.

“I’ve not taken my daughters to school every single day for their schooling life, so I am looking forward to school runs.

“And I’m really looking forward to things like those Sunday night dramas, which I’d love to be watching but haven’t been because I need to go to bed.”

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays on BBC One at 6am.
