A third commented: “#BBCBreakfast Ok BBC, why do you keep showing us BBC London instead of BBC North West? Twice now! lol.”

This is not the first time viewers of the show have complained about technical problems in recent months.

In June, host Sally Nugent spoke about the issue on an episode of the show, warning viewers of problems with the local news. “Now is the time to get the news, travel and weather where you are this morning,” she said. Some programming may be impacted by industrial action in the area.

Sally is referring to BBC Local journalists who have been on strike for 48 hours over the BBC’s plan to cut off local radio service across Britain. 1,000 journalists joined the strike, which followed industrial actions in March, but also resulted in an impasse in negotiations with the BBC.

The strike comes just a week after BBC journalists voted of no confidence in BBC Local’s senior management team.

The technical failure occurred in the context of major changes to Breakfast represent the group as both Jon Kay and Nina Warhurst have retired from the show.

In a statement posted on Instagram on Sunday night, Jon revealed that he will be away from the red sofa for the next two weeks as he enjoys a pre-planned break from the show to spend time for family.
