BBC Breakfast fans thrilled by ‘lovely surprise’ as fan favourite joins red sofa

BBC Breakfast fans were delighted to see a familiar face return to the famous red sofa alongside co-host Ben Thompson.

During Sunday’s visit (March 26) to the BBC One morning show, reporter Sarah Campbell was elevated to the role of news anchor as they discussed the biggest headlines in the news.

Before the presenting duo went live, the brunette beauty shared a team selfie with her co-host as they discussed the news segments coming up on the show.

Alongside the sweet snap, she tweeted: “Delighted to be back on the @BBCBreakfast sofa. Join @BBCBenThompson and me …

“We’re talking Covid (three years on), how the British film industry is booming and if you have any jumpers to match Gyles Brandreth’s @GylesB1 ..send us your pictures!”

It didn’t take long before her loyal legion of fans flooded to Twitter to share their congratulatory messages for the presenter as they suggested she should take on a permanent weekend position.

One user penned: “Lovely surprise to see you this morning” as another agreed: “I watch too much news…nice to see a familiar face on the sofa.”

A third echoed: “Awwww it’s lovely to see you back on the breakfast sofa Sarah, hope you will be a regular presenter on a Sunday wishing you a fabulous success.”

It’s fair to say her Breakfast stint was world’s away from her presenting role last week, where Sarah could be seen in the great outdoors with a Scout group.

The team were covering The Big Help Out, an initiative to mark King Charle’s upcoming Coronation by encouraging the general public to volunteer in passion projects around their local communities.

She could be seen tucking into some s’mores as they cosied up by the open fire, but later revealed that the tasty treat caused her some bother when it came to linking up with her colleagues back in the studio.

She told one fan: “So food. Although wouldn’t recommend eating on camera while handing back to @BBCBreakfast studio… messy!”

Her messy treat soon attracted numerous complaints online, with many pointing out their morning show failed to discuss the ongoing riots happening in the heart of Paris.
