BBC Breakfast star Louise Minchin fought back tears after surprising Dan Walker in his final day at the office.
The news anchor was seen getting emotional as she headed to the studio to wave a final goodbye to her pal live on air.
Louise, 53, told viewers at home it was "very emotional" to be in the studio as Dan, 45, co-hosted his final show with Sally Nugent.
"It's an absolute pleasure and very emotional for me here," she told her former co-star as she appeared to get chocked up.
Holding back her tears as her voice quivered, she added: "I know a lot of people will be very, very sad that you are leaving.
"You have touched the hearts of the nation over the last six years and I know people have loved watching you and I loved working with you."
