Retweeting the news from the Royal Television Society’s official Twitter page in view of his 684,000 followers, Dan added: “Brilliant news.
“Well played @BBCBreakfast & particularly @sallynugent, producer @ClaireRyanSport and our boss @BBCFrediani for driving it through #RTSAwards.”
Alongside her Twitter post, Sally continued to thank her BBC colleagues over on her Instagram page, while also joking about her choice of footwear.
She penned: “Thankyou to the brilliant @bbcbreakfast team who work day and night to bring you the news. Thankyou @bbcfrediani for the support and guidance.
“Most of all thank you to all the mums, dads, teachers and volunteers who talked to us about child food poverty.
“And finally thank you to @marcusrashford for using his voice to help others – and for putting his trust in two frazzled working mums to help tell his story. And yes. I am wearing my slippers.”
