Dan presented his final edition of BBC Breakfast on Tuesday after six years, as he prepares to join Channel 5.
After his final show, Piers took to Twitter, jibing at Dan: “End of an error.”
He then offered some form of good wishes, adding: “Congrats mate @mrdanwalker.”
“Thanks… I think,” Dan replied to the TalkTV host.
During his final Breakfast, Dan signed off with an impassioned message about the BBC’s reporting.
“To be serious for a minute, I think at a time when trust and truth have never been more important, it’s great to work with a team – and I know that I see this every single day – that do everything to make sure everything we do and say is fair and accurate, and that is so important,” he said.
“I’ve no idea who is going to sit here in the future and who this job is going to go to, but I hope that they care about the programme, and I hope they care about the people they work with and care about the viewers as well.”
