Dan said that one of the post office workers names had been misspelled as it went out on-air.

He tweeted: “Who is your Christmas hero?

“I’ll have to apologise to Kathy after we spelt it with a ‘C’ instead of a ‘K’ … sorry Kathy.”

In the short clip, Dan issued a sweet message to the workers at his local post office.

He said: “Hello everybody… Dan Walker here to talk to you about BBC Breakfast Christmas Heroes.

“Is there somebody or maybe a team of people you would like to nominate?”

Dan continued: “Who has gone above and beyond this year?

“For me, it’s the local team at the post office in Sheffield – Sara, Cathy, Elaine and Mark who are brilliant.

“They are always kind and considerate even though they’ve got parcels up to their ears at the moment.”

He added: “That’s who I would nominate but who would you nominate?”

Elsewhere, Dan recently revealed that he was dropped from talkSport in the early part of his career after he turned up for work late.

“I got sacked by talkSPORT on the third day of the job. There was a terrorist incident in London – a bomb scare,” he explained.

“I was an hour and a half late for the programme.”

The TV presenter explained that he had an early start for the show but arrived too late to be on-air.

“The controller phoned me up the next morning and said, ‘Don’t bother coming in today. You’re sacked,'” Dan recalled.

BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
