    She has gone onto compete internationally for the GB triathlon team in her age-group.

    Along with interviewing the UK’s main political and party leaders, career highlights on the show include interviewing Sir David Attenborough, the Duchess of Cambridge, Billie Eilish, Jeff Goldblum, George Clooney, and Angelina Jolie and Joanna Lumley.

    Speaking about her decision, Louise said in a statement: “I have absolutely loved being part of the 6 million strong BBC Breakfast family but after nearly two decades presenting the programme, I have decided it is time I stopped setting my alarm for 0340 in the morning.

    I will take so many memories with me, including reporting on the shock and anguish of the Manchester Arena bombing; starting a national conversation about Menopause; and the life-changing moment I took part in the Breakfast Christmas Cycling Challenge which inspired my ongoing passion for endurance sport, which I will continue when I leave.

    “A big thank you to everyone who has watched and supported me, I have loved it and I will miss you all.”

    BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
