Jon Kay was joined by Nina Warhust on Wednesday as the presenters shared the latest news headlines on BBC Breakfast. Nina was stepping in for Jon’s usual co-host Sally Nugent after a break over Christmas but the BBC presenter revealed her time off wasn’t entirely restful as she recovered from a “vomiting illness”.

On Tuesday, Nina tweeted a picture of a Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

The caption read: “Good morning from my kitchen where I’m recovering from a vomiting illness over Christmas and feel I owe it to myself to have this for breakfast.”

Several fans of the presenter sent their messages of support to Nina. 

Later in the day, she tweeted: “Thank you for your very kind wishes.

The BBC Breakfast business correspondent shared a photo of a blue slushy with an orange straw.

@JeremyH36094205 replied: “Good to see you looking well on Breakfast this morning.”

@FrithyP added: “Glad you’re back in top form – good luck with the early start.”

Jeff Davies remarked: “It wouldn’t be worth getting up if you weren’t on!”

There have been several presenting shake-ups over the Christmas period. 

Ben Boulos presented the show on Boxing Day on his own. 

Earlier in the week, Nina confirmed she would be stepping in for Naga Munchetty later this week.

She tweeted: “I’ll be ready for you Thursday & Friday @BBCBreakfast Mr Stayt.”

Nina shared the light-hearted warning after watching co-hosts Charlie Stayt and Naga on a celebrity edition of The Weakest Link. 

During the special instalment of the show hosted by Romesh Ranganathan, Charlie voted to eliminate Naga. 

After being voted off, Naga commented: “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

Charlie had justified his decision by stating Naga had been the only other player to have answered a question incorrectly during the previous round. 

Speaking to the camera, Naga said: “No one likes being voted off. If it’s fair, that’s fine. 

“If it’s betrayal from people who you think are supposed to have your back, it’s a different matter.”

BBC Breakfast airs on BBC One daily at 6am.
