BBC Breakfast disrupted by equipment ‘collapse’

BBC Breakfast faced disruption on Sunday morning (31 July) as the morning show suffered technical malfunctions behind the scenes.

The popular morning programme aired as normal at 6am, but was disrupted by a collapsing screen stand during its opening segment.

Repairs were carried out during The Travel Show, which aired partway through at 6.35am.

On social media, presenter Roger Johnson shed some light on what exactly had gone wrong in the studio.

“Running repairs to @BBCBreakfast computers … while you’re enjoying The Travel Show! Back online for 7am,” he wrote on Twitter.

A fan then jokingly asked whether he had spilled coffee on the equipment.

“In truth, the makeshift mini music stand, which holds the screen, collapsed!” Johnson revealed.

Co-host Sima Kotecha also addressed the chaotic circumstances, sharing a couple of photographs taken behind the scenes.

“Lovely to be back with @RogerJ_01 .. it’s been a while,” she wrote. “And thanks to these lads for their last minute DIY after laptop collapse – eek!”

BBC Breakfast airs daily from 6am on BBC One and BBC News.
