Viewers are used to watching Dan Walker, 43, inform us of all the latest and breaking news going on nationally and internationally on BBC Breakfast on weekdays, but this time he divulged something very different. Away from the big news of the day, Dan told a more personal story, one that left Scott Mills and Emily Atack very intrigued.

If you ever get bottle of Lenor, it’s got a particularly wide rim so I always used to keep an empty bottle of it in the car!

“There is a secret I think to this,” Dan said, as he appeared on last Saturday’s edition of Scott and Chris Stark’s BBC Radio 5 Live show.

“When I used to travel the country…” he suddenly paused.

“I sound like I’ve been on tour!” the presenter joked as the team burst out laughing.

Fellow guest Emily joked: “When I was in a band! The good old days…”

Dan roared with laughter before continuing his story: “When I used to be a full time commentator, I used to travel to Portsmouth on Friday night and then up to Sunderland, all over the place!

“Sometimes you’d get stuck in traffic and get caught short.”

And by caught short, he means needing the toilet and not physically being able to get to one – something he believes we’ve all experience at some point in our lives.

Scott asked: “What was your tip there Dan?” intrigued by what was coming next.

“Well, on the recommendation of someone else who found themselves in a similar situation may moons ago… do you know the fabric softener Lenor?”

Listeners could hear some hums of agreement in the studio before Dan revealed his ultimate life hack for travelling.

“If you ever get bottle of Lenor, it’s got a particularly wide rim so I always used to keep an empty bottle of it in the car!”

“One of the issues if you do get caught is most bottles that you do try and do that into have very small appetures, but the Lenor bottle – safe as houses!”

Before anyone else could reply, Emily sighed: “Oh God,” a response fans on Twitter thought was hilarious.

After sharing the clip on the social media site, Dan wrote: “I blame @scott_mills & @EmAtack for this (and @Chris_Stark even though he wasn’t there) #Lenor #SafeAsHouses.”

Listeners couldn’t hack the honest admission, taking to the comments section to tease the BBC presenter.

“I’ll never look at Lenor in the same way again,” one laughed.

A second used a witty pun: “Tbf he is spot on (back of the net, etc.)”

“The ‘oh God’ from the woman at the end is everything,” a third joked.

“Safe as houses! A phrase that often goes with peeing inside of your automobile,” giggled a fourth.

Scott Mills and Chris Stark’s podcast is available to download on the BBC website and BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One.
