BBC Breakfast's Jon Kay and Sally Nugent forced to reassure fans as they spot big change to show | The Sun

BBC Breakfast's Jon Kay and Sally Nugent were forced to reassure fans after they spotted a big change to the show.

Tuesday brought a special edition of the programme as the team celebrated its 40th anniversary.


Breakfast was originally called Breakfast Time before it was rebranded, and todays show featured a special half an hour dedicated to its predecessor.

Part of that tribute included swapping the usual digital clock at the bottom of the screen for Breakfast Time's original blue vintage style clock.

However, it immediately got a reaction from viewers at home.

Taking to Twitter, one BBC Breakfast fan wrote: "I am not liking the new clock format. It’s a bit 1984."

Another added: "I don’t like the clock #BBCBreakfast."

A third tweeted: "Lots of complaints from viewers who can't read an analogue clock".

Meanwhile a fourth shared: "What on earth have #BBCBreakfast done with their clock?"

Jon and Sally were alerted to the furore and were quick to reassure viewers that the change was only for one day.

Carol Kirkwood, who is the longest serving member of the team, also shared her memories.

Ahead of the anniversary, Jon said: "Sitting on the big red sofa is a dream come true for me, you will get to see a snippet of this from my childhood in the anniversary special.

"It's such a fascinating and fantastically busy time to be in news."

BBC Breakfast airs daily from 6am on BBC One.
