The 43-year-old took to the micro-blogging site and admitted he made a "new record" after the small-screen star overslept.

In view of his 668,000 followers, Dan shared a snap alongside which he sported a surprised expression.

He penned: "Morning. New record. Got in very late (because of work) last night. Slept through the alarms.

"Woke up at 8:21, made it into position for 8:31... on air on #BBCBreakfast a couple of minutes later with @mikebreakfast."
