Dan Walker is to join Channel 5 after a 13-year career at the BBC. The 45-year-old made the announcement on Twitter.

The BBC explained that he had been faced with an offer he couldn’t refuse, reports The Mirror. Appearing in a video on Twitter, shared by Channel 5 News, he told viewers: “Hello, it’s Dan here. I have a little bit of news for you. In the next few weeks, I’m going to be leaving BBC Breakfast and moving to 5 News and to Channel 5.

“I’m really excited but this has also been a massive decision for me because I love BBC Breakfast, I love working alongside Sally [Nugent] and I love the team there. But Channel 5 came with big ambitions, with big plans and I don’t think opportunities like this come around very often and I can’t wait.

“I’ve also had the incredibly privilege of working on some iconic programmes over the last few years, both at the BBC and elsewhere and what I love about this deal is I not only get to present the news, but also host a whole range of programmes right across the channel. And what an honour to step into the shoes of Sian Williams. I know how popular she is with both the team and also the audience, so all I can say is I will do my very best to maintain her incredibly high standards.

“Thank you for watching and I’ll see you soon on a TV screen somewhere.”
