    BBC Breakfast bosses took a cheeky swipe at TV presenter Sally Nugent, after they hinted the brunette beauty should sign up for an ITV dating show.

    During Monday’s (September 18) visit to the signature red sofa, the 52-year-old broadcaster welcomed viewers back to the show with her co-host Jon Kay.

    The presenting duo discussed some of the biggest stories hitting the headlines this morning including Russell Brand’s sexual assault allegations and a marathon across London in memory of their late co-star Bill Turnbull.

    But the news programme quickly derailed when the pair talked about the new ITV dating show My Mum, Your Dad which sees older people living together while on the hunt for romance.

    Jon began: "It's the show that everyone's been talking about, the new ITV show My Mum, Your Dad.

    "It's been dubbed the middle-aged Love Island featuring older people thrown together looking for romance but with a twist."

    Sally added: "There really is a twist – they have been nominated to take part by their grown up kids who get to witness all the fun off camera."

    It was at this point that Jon cheekily asked: "Shall we meet some?" which the mum-of-one excitedly agreed to as the camera panned over to her in a close up.

    The 53-year-old broadcaster joked: "It's not her, you're not on it are you?" as Sally quipped: "Not this year, no."

    The dynamic duo couldn't help but burst into laughter as bosses they shared a clip of the ITV show.

    Later on in the show, the presenting pair welcomed current contestant Natalie Russell onto the show to ask her about her time on the show.

    It comes after the newsreader reportedly separated from her husband of 13 years, Gavin Hawthorn last year.

    The news came after a friend of the couple told MailOnline that the pair have "amicably" decided to go their separate ways and end their marriage after reportedly growing apart.
