Dan Walker, host of morning show BBC Breakfast, couldn’t contain his excitement as the presenter celebrated a career win for his work on The NFL Show. The big news comes after his rival and former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 55, revealed he had stepped down from his role on the ITV news programme last week.
Piers had stormed off the show during a debate about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
At the time, Dan, 43, mockingly offered Piers a slot on his BBC show to “talk about” his dramatic Good Morning Britain exit following an ongoing rivalry between the Breakfast hosts.
The sports journalist has since revealed that The NFL Show has scooped the top prize for Best Television Show of the Year at the British Sports Journalism Awards.
In view of his 702,000 followers, Dan retweeted the big news, as he penned: “AAAARRRGHHHH! Brilliant news. Well done @OsiUmenyiora @JasonBell3 @markchapman @NatCoombs & the team at @bbcsport & @WeAreWhisperTV.”
In a follow-up post, The NFL Show presenter shared a clip with his co-hosts Jason Bell and Osi Umenyiora.
Dan wrote: “Such a great team to work with @JasonBell33 @OsiUmenyiora @NFLUK.”
Fans inundated the comment section as they offered congratulatory messages.
One wrote: “Congratulations all of you! Sunday mornings are brilliant when I record the show and watch it back. Gets you fired up for the games that day. My man @OsiUmenyiora is brilliant.”
“YESSSS!!!! Well deserved, amazing opening season Dan, great work as always Osi and Jason, and well done everyone else on the team,” another cheered.
While a third added: “Boom! That’s what my boys deserve… massive congratulations.”
The celebratory news comes just a week after the Breakfast host took a jibe at Piers.
Dan announced on the micro-blogging site that he was open to Piers making an appearance on “the UK’s number 1 breakfast show”.

The presenter jibed in a swipe over ratings: “Sorry to hear the news about your departure from GMB @piersmorgan.”
After offering his apologies, the BBC host suggested that Piers could make an appearance on his show to discuss his exit.
“If you’d like to come on the UK’s number 1 breakfast show to talk about it… we could make some space for you in the morning”.
The BBC presenter ended his tweet with a thumbs-up emoji.
A statement released by ITV said: “Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.
“ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.”
Piers’ exit came a day after Meghan and Harry’s exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey aired in the UK.
Ofcom received more than 41,000 complaints about the ITV presenter’s comments regarding The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s tell-all chat.
