Dan Walker penned a touching message on Tuesday alongside his former BBC Breakfast co-star, Carol Kirkwood.

Taking to Instagram, the 45-year-old - who now presents on Channel 5 - shared a joyous photo of himself beaming alongside Carol, 60. In the photo, the weather presenter could be seen launching an arm around Dan in a playful display of friendship.

"It was a real privilege to sit on the famous sofa for six years. It is a special programme, made by a brilliant, dedicated team and it continues to be an important show for the huge, loyal audience."

Heaping praise on Carol, Dan finished his message by adding: "Also… Carol is the best," followed by a red heart emoji.

Delighted fans and friends were quick to congratulate the presenting duo, with one writing: "Miss seeing you nearly every morning on the show Dan," whilst a second noted: "Happy 40th Birthday BBC Breakfast. Will always remain a loyal viewer. Since the age of Three and a half."

A third gushed: "The best smiles," followed by a trio of red heart emojis, and a fourth simply added: "Congratulations".

Dan's heartfelt social media update comes after the father-of-three responded to Prince Harry's tell-all memoir and shared his own tales of sibling rivalry.

Over on Twitter, the news presenter revealed: "I got asked today what is the worst thing I ever did to my brother… I once threw a rugby ball up the stairs to him. It went through his hands, hit the loft catch and the ladder came down at great speed and knocked him clean out!"

Delving further into his childhood, Dan remorsefully opened up about a different spat which left his brother in crutches. He explained: "The low point came on the day I was sent to bed early after an argument. I put drawing pins through the carpet by our bedroom door and he stood on them when he came in.

"One got stuck and had to be cut out at A & E." Dan recalled the incident vividly and illustrated the anecdote with a 'nauseated face' emoji. "…The poor fella was on crutches for weeks."
