BBC Breakfast presenter Steph McGovern, 37, has told viewers who complained the alleged blunder to “take a bit of care” before trolling. It comes after Sally was accused of reading out the wrong rugby score on the show this morning.
In view of her 391,000 followers, she wrote: “To all the people trolling my mate Sal @sallynugentthis morn, saying she got the rugby score wrong.... SHE DIDN’T.
