The fact you bring up my post as “concerning” says more about yourself than it does me. Maybe I put it across in the wrong way but the fact I’m being called out do be some sort of stalker is out of order. Just intrigued as I know Louise moved up north and so did Bill (temporarily). Anyway, yeah, don’t make me out to be some sort of stalker. Much appreciated

Once you've been here a while you'll learn the kind of stuff it's best not to post about.

Ps. I don't think you're a stalker.

I would rather falsly imply that you are a stalker than see information posted which could be used by a stalker for their own purposes - and we know that stalking of broadcast journalists and presenters is a very real issue. We've had issues here previously regarding the privacy of presenters and reporters and members crossing the line when it comes to questions about them, so it's just best to cut that conversation before it even begins.

Ultimately the exact accomodation arrangements of individual presenters is not our concern. I would also hope that eight years on from the move to Salford it isn't the concern of the BBC either.


P.S. Eight years... Eight years we've been stuck with that set.

Eight years and you’re still complaining about that set, Brekkie. Lol.

Given the space and height constraints, there is only one small change I would make to remove the “awkwardness” of the layout. Just over Charlie’s right shoulder (to his left, as we look at it) I would remove the right-angle back wall where the two studio screens meet, and introduce an angled segment of screen at 45deg, so that the set follows more of the form of the sofa area.

There will be a million reasons why this isn’t possible, but I’m just pointing it out from an aesthetic perspective as I’m not an engineer.

Oh, hang on. I am. I forgot. 🙈

I don’t think it’s even a right angle, is it? I’m sure it’s more acute than that. But yes, I agree it’d look a lot better if the screens were able to curve around behind the sofa.

@Karl072..

A train journey from London to Manchester takes 2 hours 35mins. Susanna Reid used to commute up at night, and get on the train back to London after the show. She's spend all day in London and then do the same again at night. This is well documented in many interviews she's done.

I think most presenters of Breakfast who don't live in Manchester, Salford or wherever have talked about how they manage the balance and travel. Try googling....... but as many have mentioned, this forum has rules and some topics are off limits.

I remember Ben Thompson was quite open about where he stays because the beds are too small for this legs. LOL

I think there is a legitimate wider and more general discussion about whether having talent commuting from London is fulfilling the aims of moving departments to Salford.


Indeed, though so long there are decent levels of production staff living up north, I think there’s a justification for Breakfast staying in Salford.

98% of the Breakfast presenting team live in London. Louise is the only presenter who is local to Salford.

Obviously we've no idea what accommodation arrangements presenters have, and that info is none of our business but certainly Ben, Tina and other younger presenters make no secret they stay in hotels.

If the BBC are covering such expenses, I'd love to know what that amounts to annually!
