BBC Breakfast aired yet another major show shake-up on Thursday (February 17) as presenter Charlie Stayt was mysteriously missing from the programme.

Charlie usually presents the programme on Thursdays and Fridays alongside Naga Munchetty – and, although Naga was present this week, Charlie was replaced by co-star Jon Kay.

It comes after Dan Walker and Sally Nugent were both replaced earlier in the week, with Jon stepping in for Dan and Nina Warhurst taking up Sally's seat on the red sofa.

In response to Charlie's absence, one baffled fan wondered on Twitter: "Where's Dan and Sally or Charlie and Naga, please? #BBCBreakfast".

Another worried fan wrote earlier in the week: "Right, what's going on here then? Get Dan Walker and Sally Nugent back on as soon as possible!"

As someone else echoed: "Where on earth are Dan Walker and Sally Nugent? BBC Breakfast doesn't feel right without them."

None of the presenters have so far addressed their mystery absences on social media – though it is half-term, so it makes sense that they could be taking time off to spend with their families.

Dan has, however, responded to one fan who wondered if he would make a huge move with his family to help out with his BBC role.

Opening up in an Instagram Q&A this week, Dan wrote: "What would you like to know?", and one fan asked: "Would you ever consider moving to London?"

Dan explained: "We have lived in London before but I don’t like the idea that you have to live in London to do a decent job.

"So, Sheffield’s brilliant, not too far away from the BBC up north and you can’t get Henderson's Relish in London – very important."

Sheffield is a city close to Dan's heart – and he loved introducing his Strictly Come Dancing partner Nadiya Bychkova to his favourite restaurants there.

The star even met his wife Sarah at Sheffield University, when they were both students.

Elsewhere on Thursday's programme, stand-by presenter Katherine Downes was in Beijing to report on the Winter Olympics when she was left insulted by a 'rude' sound man.

Discussing the matter of bobble hats with Naga, Katherine revealed: " I've brought seven bobble hats with me out to Beijing. And do you know what – I love them!"

She added: "But my sound man here, Graham, he's very rude about my bobble hat.

"He says it makes me look like my head is the shape of a mushroom. But I'm loving them, it's freezing out here!"

BBC Breakfast airs daily from 6am on BBC One.
