BBC’s Dan Walker takes down troll who suggests he’s having sex with co-star

Dan Walker furiously lashed out at an internet troll who suggested he was having sex with his co-host Sally Nugent.

The BBC Breakfast host made it very clear how little he appreciated someone questioning whether or not there was something going on between them.

Dan, who has been married to wife Sarah since 2001, lashed out at what he called the "pathetic" comment.

Earlier today, someone tweeted: "Is @mrdanwalker bending one in that bird from the @BBCBreakfast show?"

A seething Dan shared the post and responded: "'That bird' is my friend @sallynugent and she is happily married.

"What a pathetic thing to tweet. I hope you treat that young girl in your twitter banner photo with a bit more respect.

"You’ve been reported to twitter. Have a nice day."

Dan, 42, added: "You might also want to read through your own timeline"

Alongside that post, he shared a tweet from the man urging people to be nice to each other following the tragic death of Caroline Flack.

Dan's outrage at the tweet caused a divide though.


One commented: "Dan do you not understand how twitter works? What he said was hardly offensive."

Another wrote: "Reported to Twitter ?!! For that?!! Maybe come off social media is stuff like that gets to you"

Many had his back though.

One posted: "You have to marvel at the pure self centred stupidity where he would think, I know, I’ll tweet this as it may get me a like…."

"Well done Dan," another replied.

While one wrote: "Well said Dan and apologies from my half of the human race Sally"

And another told him: "What an abnoxious individual hope he gets blocked sally is such a lovely person and so are you dan"

An act of kindness by Dan went viral at Christmas when he surprised a lonely pensioner with his very own Christmas tree.

Oldhan man Terrence, 78, had spent the last 20 Christmas Days alone, and Dan reduced him to tears of joy when he headed round with students from Oldham College to present him with a tree.

He also had the student choir sing carols for Terrence, who was deeply moved by what he had done.
