BBC star pays tribute to 'hero' Naga Munchetty as she takes break from show

BBC Breakfast presenter Victoria Valentine has paid tribute to her co-stars in an emotional post, after announcing she was taking a break from the programme.

The broadcaster, who has regularly appeared on the red sofa alongside the likes of Jon Kay and Naga Munchetty, revealed in August that she was ‘exploring something new’.

She said: ‘I wanted to let you in on something I’ve been thinking about and working towards for some time now.

‘I am taking a little bit of a break from broadcasting and from the BBC in order to explore something new.’

Victoria went on: ‘So I – at the grand old age of 39 – going back to university.

‘I am enrolled in a full time masters course, psychological sciences, which I’ve kind of sold to my parents as a bit of neuroscience with some thinking and feeling stuff attached to it.’

She added: ‘You can probably understand why that would appeal and be something I’m interested in.

‘Should that all go well and I’m not terrible at it, I’ll be looking to progress and do a doctorate.

‘Perhaps four years from now you’ll be looking at Dr Valentine.’

‘No one ever has a bad day with Ben Thompson, look at those heroes!’

BBC Breakfast airs from 6am on BBC One.
