BBC Breakfast'sDan Walker was left red-faced after having to apologise to his co-host Nina Warhurst live on air after making a dig towards her weight.

On Tuesday's programme, Dan presented a segment alongside Nina where reporter Ben Boulous discussed the latest Christmas Royal Mail updates.

Reporter Ben said: "Nina and Dan, I thought what better way than to wrap a little Christmas parcel from me to you. I had a look around my flat and I found a little box of chocolates and I've lovingly wrapped it.

"I say a box of chocolate its literally the box, the chocolates have been consumed already, but it's Christmas it's the thought that counts, right?"

Nina then jokingly replied: "Absolutely, I will definitely be hot-footing it in the office on Christmas day in order to collect that empty box. Thank you, Ben."

Dan then accidentally offended Nina and said: "It keeps the weight down as well knowing there's not any chocolate in it."

Shocked by his comment, Nina said: "What are you saying?"

Looking guilty, Dan panicked and said: "No, not your weight!"

"Get out, get out while you can! It's time now for the news, travel and the weather while I apologise profusely to Nina."

Luckily, Nina laughed and brushed off the situation but still didn't let Dan off the hook completely and added in a little jibe before the segment moved on, by telling him "it's too late".

Ben went on to explain that Tuesday was the final day viewers at home could send their post in time for Christmas.

He did though also add that there are many retailers still offering more last-minute delivery times, for those who haven't sorted out their presents just yet.

The reporter, who was filming live from London, added that a handful of retailers such as Asos and John Lewis were part of the late offerings.
