Louise Minchin, 52, has announced she will be back to setting her alarm at 3.45am, as the presenter returned to BBC Breakfast today. The anchor was on the sofa without her regular co-star Dan Walker, 44, as she took to Twitter to share the news.

It comes after the regular morning programme was replaced for the past 16 days with BBC Olympics coverage.

The mum-of-two shared a cheeky photo of herself sitting on a pommel horse on Twitter.

But her post sparked confusion amongst some viewers, who believed that the presenter had already left BBC Breakfast.

One person quizzed: “Thought you were moving on from the early starts.”

“Ahh so they couldn’t keep you away long and wanted you back,” a second mused.

A third added: “Morning Louise. It’s nice to have you back.”

In view of her 213,000 followers, the broadcaster penned: “Good morning, back to the 03.45 #BBCBreakfast alarm call and guess who is going to be chatting to us today? #olympics.”

Louise announced earlier this summer that she will be stepping down from her BBC Breakfast role after two decades.

She told viewers that she had treasured her time with the BBC, but had decided it was time to stop setting her alarm for 3.40am, adding that she was looking forward to sleeping in.

The broadcaster gave a vague leaving date of “some time after the summer”.

Louise has been absent from the BBC for the past couple of weeks, as she enjoyed a well-deserved break.

She stunned fans as she posted a selfie on Instagram looking sun-kissed and radiant.

Louise captioned to the post: “I hope you are managing to get a summer break.

“I am looking forward to being back on #BBCBreakfast after catching some sunshine on Monday morning minus my new head-gear.”

Meanwhile, social media users also questioned the broadcaster after BBC Breakfast did not feature local news in their coverage today.

One said: “Great to see you all again. Why no local news etc?”

Another commented: “Morning Louise can you tell us when we are getting the local news back?”

“Why is there no local news, travel, weather this morning please and why is there no explanation?” a third asked.

Express.co.uk has contacted BBC Breakfast representatives for comment.

BBC Breakfast featured national weather on the programme and aired a special of the Olympics coverage with interviews with medallists from the Games today.

BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
