Rachel Burden of BBC Breakfast sends a touching farewell to her co-host, saying, “Long live the king.”

Rachel Burden of BBC BREAKFAST has spoken out about her co-departure star’s from the show.

Rachel Burden is well-known for hosting BBC Radio 5 Live’s morning breakfast show. The singer, however, has turned to social media to say her goodbyes to her co-host Nicky Campbell.

Nicky will be leaving their morning news show at the end of the year.

He’ll be moving to a little later spot on the radio, according to the BBC.

In light of her 83,000 followers, Rachel reacted to the news.

“The king is moving to a slightly later slot, long live the king,” she wrote.

Nicky and Rachel will continue to host the show until November.

Rick Edwards, a former Channel 4 broadcaster, will subsequently take over, according to the BBC.

“We have some fantastic news…,” they said earlier today.

“From November, Rick Edwards will take over as the new 5 Live Breakfast host alongside Rachel Burden, succeeding Nicky Campbell.

“Congratulations, @RickEdwards1!” says the user.

“Nicky Campbell is transferring to present a later show on 5 Live every weekday morning,” the broadcaster added.

“Congratulations to Rick,” Nicky said in response to the news.

“He’s a fantastic broadcaster. He and @rachelburden are going to be amazing.” (sic)

Nicky later stated that he will host from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

This is now the period where the host takes questions from the audience, and it appears that this will be prolonged for a new show.

Many admirers took to social media to express their shock at the news.

“Happy with that as long as @NickyAACampbell stays on @bbc5live sometime during the day,” one wrote.

“Good to hear you’re remaining around @NickyAACampbell, and I’m looking forward to hearing you on the mid-morning show,” said another.


However, the news that he is quitting the morning show has left some people sad.

“Oh no….so depressing….

“Has Nicky been on the breakfast show for a long time?” Another was written.

“I’ve been listening to @NickyAACampbell every morning for years, and he’s been absolutely excellent as a presenter and trusted journalistic voice.”


“I think @nickycampbell is too excellent for BBC now,” a fourth fan said.

“Why don’t you switch to another radio station where you may air your ideas freely?”

“I can’t believe it’s a financial issue.”
