BBC Breakfast source confirms 'disruption' behind the scenes after Dan Walker's exit
Dan Walker's transition into life at Channel 5 seems to have gone smoothly, there has allegedly been some "disruption" behind the scenes at his old BBC Breakfast job.One BBC source has now confirmed to Daily Star that things are rather hectic behind-the-scenes of the morning programme, which is currently helmed by Sally Nugent, Jon Kay, Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt.Not only is there tension on set due to the "hasty" decision by BBC bosses to replace Dan's image with Jon Kay's for the show's official social media accounts, but a major overhaul is being planned at the same time.Speaking exclusively to Daily Star, a BBC source said: "There's disruption behind the scenes as BBC Breakfast is getting a new set in the next few months."The show is set to emulate the studio of popular US talk shows, with a more dynamic background and perhaps swapping out the low coffee table for a higher desk.They added: "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."Apparently they want it to look a bit more like a US breakfast show and might have windows and people walking past."But that isn't all, as there is more tension than just a set reshuffle behind the cameras.In front of the camera, Jon Kay has stepped almost seamlessly into Dan's old seat on the red sofa - but not everyone is happy about it.The BBC hasn't yet confirmed who will take over Dan's role in an official capacity, and some staff still vying for the promotion have been left feeling "awkward" that Jon appears to be the "heir apparent".Our source told us: "Much as everyone thinks Jon Kay is the heir apparent for Dan's job, there has been some uneasiness that the

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

I think he stole the show, perhaps, a little bit in the Royal Box over the weekend?"Fantastic pictures - not looking particularly impressed."Can I just say, anyone with children will understand, keeping them amused while on show and well behaved is quite something."Jon then added: "I love the fact that they then didn't take him to the concert on Saturday night, having learnt their lesson on Thursday and Friday."Both Sally and Jon called Louis one of the highlights of the entire weekend, along with the Queen's iconic Paddington sketch which saw her chat to the animated bear.Jon giggled: "Get Prince Louis and Paddington together, you've got perfection!" as Sally predicted: "That would be chaos!"Jon then reflected: "What a brilliant week, I think everybody's exhausted.
