Dan Walker has provided an update after leaving BBC Breakfast. The presenter left the show after six years on the famous red sofa on Tuesday, May 17.
The 46-year-old announced he was leaving the programme back in April and said he was "really excited" to take on a new role at Channel 5 News, which would see him replace Sian Williams who recently stepped down from anchoring the show.
At the time, Dan said: "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."

He added: "I've had the incredible 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."
It's not been announced, however, when Dan will officially start on Channel 5 News but it looks set to be soon after Dan's most recent update. The former Strictly Come Dancing star has shared the first pictures of him at the studio.
Looking dapper in a suit, Dan told his 300k Twitter followers: "I had a little look around my new TV home today. They all seem lovely at @5_News."
It comes after Dan told fans he was enjoying being able to stay up later now he doesn't have to set a 3am alarm for BBC Breakfast. On Sunday, May 21 he told his Twitter followers: "It's quite fun not having to go to bed isn't it?".
BBC Breakfast starts on weekdays at 6am and Dan's shift saw him host the show Monday through to Wednesday. Replying to Dan's post, his former co-host Sally wrote: "Stop it," to which Dan revealed: "I woke up at 3 naturally if that helps." For more showbiz and television stories, get our newsletter here.
