She wrote alongside them: “Some emails I picked up today from someone I’ve never met.

“We have a long, long way to go.”

Quoting her post, Dan hit back at the trolls: “Nina… I think you can safely file these under ‘morons’.

“Ignore them. Your worth is not measured by this sort of guff.

“You’re brilliant at your job, great to work with and you always look classy.

“Got to go… need to spend an hour with the glute machine.”

Dan recently quit BBC Breakfast to move to Channel 5 in a big money deal.
