BBC Breakfast fans couldn't resist making jokes after Nina Warhurst's replacement was revealed.

One fan tweeted: "Fab baby bump! They're going to need a BBC breakfast kindergarten ASAP."

Another wrote: "Good to see you Emma. Is it now a rule, BBC breakfast business presenters have to be pregnant? Don’t tell @BBCBenThompson."
