Isn't it time that the VD show was renamed, given that she rarely does a complete week of broadcasts?
Perhaps BBC News Today - even a legacy title like Nationwide with <NAME>. - would be better ideas that giving someone an ego by calling it after their name and then that person fails to appear.
Having Victoria Derbyshire with <NAME> is ridiculously clunky too.
She's been on all this week so far and most weeks does Monday-Thursday and the occasional Friday. She hasn't appeared for the last 2 weeks, presumably, due to holiday like many other people at this time of year have time off work for.
If they were to rename it, some thing like Morning Live would suit, to make it consistent with the other two strands. I'm not Victoria's biggest fan, but personally, I think the name of the show, and the show itself, is fine as it is.
Stay alert. Control the virus. Save lives.
