Sally Nugent and Jon Kay present BBC Breakfast
BBC Breakfast presenter Sally Nugent has been praised by viewers for “soldiering on” through an apparent illness while presenting the show this morning.
The star was visibly battling a seasonal cold as she hosted the flagship news show alongside host Jon Kay.
Although she looked fine in a pale pink trouser suit with a white tee underneath, with her hair in its usual sleek style and picture-perfect make-up, her voice gave her away as she had the trademark “bunged up” sound that accompanies a cold.
Ever the professional she gamely carried on and conducted interviews with guests including former cricketer Stuart Broad.
However, fans sympathised with her working while ill and took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to comment.

A viewer with the handle @_John_Stephens_admitted that he was also ill writing: “@sallynugent well done for soldiering on today! I believe we may have the same cold!!”
@Steeley1968 was extremely impressed that she carried on saying: “Shout out to @sallynugent who presented @BBCBreakfast full of a cold! Proper, trooper!!! Go Sal!!”
Someone with the handle @Kazwags had nothing but sympathy for the stricken presenter. “How ill does Sally sound this morning, I think she needs a lemsip and to go home to rest #BBCBreakfast.”
However, @BCollier2012 was slightly sceptical that it was actually a cold commenting: “#bbcbreakfast Why has dreary Sally turned up at work with a stinking cold? Or is it covid?” (sic)

The NHS advise that it can take up to two weeks to clear a cold, but that you don’t necessarily need to see a GP to treat it.
For the quickest recovery, they say you should rest and sleep and drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration, although fruit juice or squash mixed with water is also fine.
If you are suffering with a sore throat as one of your symptoms they suggest gargling with salt water to soothe it, but this isn’t suitable for children.
They advise staying at home if you have a high temperature or you do not feel well enough to do your normal activities.
BBC Breakfast continues daily on BBC One from 6am.
