BBC Breakfast presenter Sally Nugent shared a sweet get-well message to former co-host Dan Walker after his "scary" bike accident.
The BBC anchor, 51, referred to "our Dan" during a segment on the newsreader, who yesterday told how he was "lucky to be alive" after a nasty crash left his face covered in blood.
Dan, 45, later gave a health update as he returned home with, thankfully, no broken bones.
As Sally and BBC Breakfast colleague Jon Kay, 53, got stuck into the show, images of their former co-presenter flashed up.
She said: "Here's a familiar face everyone, Dan Walker, our Dan was injured after he was in a collision with a car while cycling yesterday."
Jon then mused: "Sounds like he was out cold for 20 minutes or so."
