BBC Breakfast's Sally Nugent and Jon Kay BOTH ditch the studio in major format shake-up | The Sun

BBC Breakfast's Sally Nugent and Jon Kay BOTH ditched the studio in a major format shake-up.

Last week, the presenters were not in the studio together as Jon presented live from Downing Street to cover Liz Truss's appointment as the new Conservative Party Leader and Prime Minister.


Today, following the death of The Queen last Thursday, neither of them were on the BBC Breakfast sofa in Salford.

Jon, 52, was up in Edinburgh, following the arrival of The Queen's coffin from Balmoral on Sunday.

The late Monarch will lie in state there for 24 hours for members of the public to view the coffin before her final journey continues to London.

Meanwhile Sally, 51, was outside Buckingham Palace in London presenting her parts of the show.

Both Jon and Sally more black as a mark of respect to the late Queen, who died aged 96 last week.

The Queen's coffin will be moved on Tuesday, where it will be taken to Edinburgh Airport before being flown to RAF Northolt.

It will then be taken to Buckingham Palace before the Queen will lie in state at the Palace of Westminster from Wednesday, September 14 until the day of her funeral on Monday, September 19.

Today's broadcast comes after BBC Breakfast viewers have defended the show's coverage of the Queen's death after host Naga Munchetty made a blunder.

The presenter, 47, was slammed by viewers on Saturday over a mistake she made about King Charles.

Hosting a special edition of the popular morning programme with Charlie Stayt in the lead up to the King's Proclamation, Naga annoyed several viewers when she referred to the monarch as Prince Charles III.

But not all viewers of the show were critical of Naga and her co-host, with many praising the duo.

One hit back, praising the show in comparison to what was airing on BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

The viewer wrote: "Shocked by utter lack of respect for our Queen shown. #r4today talking about environmental b*****s now and other #bbcnews haven’t done enough coverage."

BBC Breakfast airs daily from 6am on BBC One.
