Dan Walker rips into BBC Breakfast producers for 'worst ever' pictures after string of technical blunders

DAN Walker lost his patience with producers on BBC Breakfast this morning after the show suffered a string of technical blunders. 

Presenters Dan and Sally Nugent tried to deliver a segment on the first full moon of the year – but it soon went horribly wrong.


Casting their eyes over images of a Wolf Moon, the pair failed to keep up with their script, with Walker quick to dub it as one of the “worst ever” montages to feature on the show.

Introducing the segment, Dan said: "If you were looking up in the sky last night, you might have spotted a rare spectacle.

"It is the first full moon of the new year – the Wolf Moon."

However, Dan soon lost his composure when a large photo of the moon appeared on the screen.

He went on: "There he is – a clear display across the world,” before sarcastically quipping: "Just in case you're wondering, that is the moon."

Sally started laughing as the duo attempted to rescue the segment.

Continuing the commentary, Dan tried to explain the photo before a new moon snap appeared on the screen.

Admiring the golden moon, he said: "Alice's spectacular view in Shrewsbury. Oh, hold on, it's moved on."

Unfortunately, things got worse, because the same golden moon snap was still hovering on the screen.

Sally tried her best to continue as she said: "This is from June near Bolton. I think that's the same picture."

Dan, clearly fed up with the segment, fumed: "I think that's one of the worst moon montages we've ever had on this programme, but thank you very much for your photographs."

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One.
