BBC Breakfast fans baffled as Jon Kay leaves Nina Warhurst hosting alone in studio again
BBC Breakfast fans were left baffled as another shake-up saw host Jon Kay abandon the studio completely for the second time in a week.The permanent presenter only officially landed Dan Walker's old job a fortnight ago - but catching Covid-19 last week meant he couldn't take up the role immediately.And on Jon's official first week on the job, he fled the studio entirely, leaving Nina Warhurst to present alone from Media City.READ MORE: BBC Breakfast's Carol Kirkwood reveals how she 'ruined' her fiancée's proposalInstead, Jon took up a post at Droitwich Spa Lido near Birmingham to present live on the latest heatwave news. Meanwhile, weather presenter Carol Kirkwood was also out and about at Kew Gardens to bring viewers the latest temperature updates.Even business correspondent Ben Boulos escaped the air conditioned BBC Studios in exchange for taking up a post at King's Cross Station in London to talk about the disruption to rail services.On Monday (July 18), Jon exchanged the red sofa for a spot by the river in Cambridge - where a pigeon unfortunately decided to poo on his linen jacket.After fans wondered why he was wearing a jacket at all in the heat, on Tuesday Jon opted for something a little more summer-ready, looking dashing as ever in a white button-up shirt dotted with lilac flowers.

BBC Breakfast's Jon Kay left red-faced as he suffers pooey wardrobe blunder live on-air
BBC Breakfast presenter Jon Kay was left red-faced on Monday (July 18) as he suffered a major wardrobe blunder live on the programme.Jon was presenting on location in Cambridge to warn viewers of the extreme heat expected across the UK, with temperatures reaching 41 degrees Celsius in parts of the country.Weather presenter Carol Kirkwood was also out and about in Central London, while only Nina Warhurst held down the fort at the Media City-based BBC studios.

Because I've just been splatted by a pigeon."Carol simply burst into laughter at his admission, before gathering herself enough to say: "Try one of these wet wipe things - it might spread it a wee bit, but if you use a few..."Looking completely unimpressed by Carol's tips, Jon said: "It could get messy, couldn't it? I'm slightly anxious about doing this.

BBC Breakfast bosses planning for major set overhaul to emulate US morning show
BBC Breakfast viewers will be in for a shock soon, as the studio is set for a major overhaul and will copy popular US morning talk shows.The BBC programme has been a staple of our screens for decades, with presenters sitting together on the iconic red sofa with a low table in front of them to place laptops and papers on.Behind presenters like Naga Munchetty, Sally Nugent and Charlie Stayt is the typical photographic backdrop of the Media City skyline in Salford Quays.But all of that is set to change, as bosses are planning to ditch the traditional format for something more along the lines of Piers Morgan's TalkTV show Uncensored, which features a high desk and scrolling news headlines.Speaking exclusively to Daily Star, a BBC source confirmed: "There's disruption behind the scenes as BBC Breakfast is getting a new set in the next few months."It will be the first time they've changed it since they moved to Salford in 2012, so all in all everything will look very different in the coming months."The source added: "Apparently they want it to look a bit more like a US breakfast show and might have windows and people walking past."It was reported in May that the BBC is working to revamp Studio B, with RX:TV reporting at the time that the building - which housed Victoria Derbyshire and Newsnight - is due to be revealed soon.The publication reported bosses were "concerned" that the studio's output had "fallen behind" what viewers expect from the national broadcaster.It added that the BBC Breakfast studio - which is shared with North West Tonight - is filmed in a space originally intended to be an office space, "with a relatively low ceiling for TV studios".Director General Tim Davie allegedly announced to staff that all regional
