BBC BREAKFAST viewers were let stunned this morning as a new presenter took over hosting duties.
However, all four of the journalists were nowhere to be seen as the show came on air.
Instead they’ve been replaced by a brand new presenter – Ben Boulos.
The BBC journalist is presenting from the red sofa for the very first time.
He took viewers through the latest news as well as a segment on Christmas Day television.
In a big change to the show’s format Boulos fronted the programme alone, instead of with a co-presenter.
Ben couldn’t hide his excitement and took to social media to share the news as well as a snap from the iconic set.
He posted: “Guessing you’ve figured it out by now!
“Very excited to be presenting #BBCBreakfast @BBCBreakfast for the first time this morning. More coming up at 8am.”
