BBC Breakfast’s Louise Minchin, 52, found herself having to wrap up the latest episode of her and Annie Emmerson’s Her Spirit podcast sharpish, as she was being turfed out of where she was. The presenters were talking to triathlete Claire Danson, who won the 30-34 age category at the European Championships in 2019, but had to bid a swift goodbye as she scarpered from her set up.

After Claire discussed her injury, which left her paralysed from the waist down after colliding with a tractor whilst out riding her bike, she teased her new goals for a 100mile charity bike ride.

Louise and Annie were in awe but the BBC host had to make a quick getaway.

“Right Claire, I think we’re going to have to let you go!” she exclaimed.

“I’m being chucked out of where I am right now.”

Both Claire and Annie giggled as she continued: “I’m in a rented house in Cornwall and I know the cleaners are going to be turfing me out in a minute!”

As they said farewell to “incredible” Claire, Louise teased what’s in store for listeners next time.

Before completely signing off to make way for the cleaning team, she revealed who they’ll be chatting to.

“We have a complete change-up next week, oh my gosh!” she cried as Annie shrieked with glee.

“Oh my God can you believe it?” she agreed.

“I have loved this girl for so long I really have. I love her body, I love her voice… Mel C!”

“Sporty Spice. It’s so exciting,” Louise chimed in.

“I’m going to listen to her on the way back from Cornwall, which is my happy place!”

The trip down south could have been an early birthday trip, as the BBC team celebrated the presenter’s special day on-air on Tuesday.

Appearing next to Dan, she wasn’t best impressed that he only remembered because he had seen a message from Judge Rob Rinder that reminded him.

Exposing her co-host, Louise said: “Dan only found out because my good friend Rob Rinder sent me a message.”

“That’s how I found out as well,” weatherman Matt Taylor admitted.

Smiling, Louise added: “I’d like to say thank you.”

“I thought I was sure I’d put it in my phone a few years ago,” Dan explained.

“I found out my true friends now,” Louise joked.

Fans rushed to social media to wish her a happy birthday while the official show’s Twitter page sent out a special message.

BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
