Meanwhile, others slammed Sally as she interviewed Sajid Javid.

The journalist, who replaced Louise Minchin on the breakfast show, questioned the Health Secretary over self-isolation restrictions lifting.

She also quizzed him on Boris Johnson’s emergency meeting about Russia.

Following the interview, viewers took to social media to share their thoughts.

“It’s an honour to take the reins from Louise and be part of the UK’s most watched breakfast show.”
