Dan Walker forced to apologise to Hancock as BBC Breakfast blunder skewers interview

Louise Minchin said: “We will be back with him as soon as we possible can. In the meantime, Sally’s got a great interview for us.” 

After Sally Nugent delivered her spots segment, Walker took over: “We have managed to connect things with the Health Secretary, let’s go and speak to Matt Hancock straight away. 

“Matt Hancock, first of all, please accept our apologies for the technical problems, we know you’ve been sat there for quite a while but we can now hear you and hopefully, you can now see us and hear us as well. Is that all going according to plan?” 

“I can hear you and that’s good enough for me!” The Health Secretary said. 

“Excellent, okay, can we start today with talking about social care – we’ve got slightly reduced time because of the issues – but on the first day in the job back in August 2019, I’m sure you’ll remember, the Prime Minister stood on the steps of Downing Street and promised that social care would be a top priority,” Walker commented.
