Dan Walker: BBC Breakfast host’s anger as England lose in Ashes – ‘Don’t mention cricket!’

Dan is an avid cricket fan and is often seen tweeting to his hundreds of thousands of followers his views on England’s side. His outrage on social media came after Australia beat England by 251 runs in the first of the five matches. He said on Twitter: “No-one mention the cricket.

“I’ve had to turn it off as Nathan Lyon’s face is annoying me too much.”

This followed on from a previous outburst on Twitter from Dan who tweeted his distaste of the matches umpires.

Australian off-spinner Lyon helped his team secure the win by claiming 6-49 at the Edgbaston grounds.

Batsman Steve Smith received praise for rescuing Australia from 122-8 in the first innings.

At one stage in the match England lost six wickets for 37 runs before being bowled out for 146.

The victory has put Australia ahead in the Ashes series in the UK for the first time in 14 years.

Australia are currently the reigning champions having won the 2018 series 4-0.

The series was played in Australia and was the first time they had won since 2015.

The second test of 2019 will be held between 14-18 August at Lord’s.

Dan first took his place on the BBC Breakfast sofa as one of the main presenters after Bill Turnbull, 63, announced he was leaving following 15 years on the show.

His BBC Breakfast co-host is Louise Minchin.

In a recent interview with The Daily Mirror, Dan and Louise spoke out about their friendship.

Louise has claimed that they regularly help each other out of tight spots on air.

She said: “I think we’re both team players.

“And so many times Dan gets me out of trouble or I get him out of trouble.”

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One.
