BBC Breakfast's New Host Dan Walker Receives Viewers' Verdict After Replacing Bill Turnbull

Viewers Giving Verdict On BBC Breakfast Host Divided Into 4 Camps

Dan Walker has not yet slept through the three alarms he sets for his hosting duties on BBC Breakfast, so what is the verdict on Bill Turnbull’s replacement on the red sofa?


It was a busy morning for Dan’s debut yesterday morning, with live links from Hollywood to chew on the Oscar results. Tuesday was relatively normal, with discussions of St David’s Day and what Super Tuesday in the US actually means.

Dan Walker was beside regular presenter Louise Minchin for his debut

So far, viewers appear divided into FOUR camps.

The business-as-usual brigade...

The ones who can’t reconcile themselves to his devout and open Christian beliefs…

I can't see Dan Walker the same, knowing he's a creationist

.@BBCBreakfast pretty unpalatable now that it's hosted by a fundamentalist extremist @mrdanwalker

#DanWalker#BBCBreakfast not doing it for me. Fluff, no heft and can't help thinking about his wanky religious beliefs.

And the ones pointing out they're wrong...

@ChristianToday@billtu@RuthieGledhill Hope the tweeps read this who say they won't believe #danwalker because of his faith. #faith

Dan will be on the sofa every week on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and continuing with his 'Football Focus' duties.
