BBC Breakfast viewers were left concerned for Louise Minchin when the presenter suddenly disappeared mid-broadcast.

She was presenting alongside Dan Walker when she became ill, and had to be quickly replaced by Sally Nugent.

Worried viewers were quick to send get well messages to the presenter.

Many also congratulated Sally for doing such a good job at short notice.

Some joked that Dan’s rather lively pink and purple tie might have made Louise feel a bit queasy.

Get well soon, Louise!
