Louise Minchin left fans devastated when she departed BBC Breakfast last month, but now there’s some seriously good news as the broadcast star has announced a major new project. 

From the moment she announced she was leaving BBC Breakfast earlier this year, Louise Minchin fans were left wondering who was replacing her on the daily show and just what she would be taking on next. Sally Nugent has previously stepped in as presenter as viewers wait for a permanent replacement to be announced and has been seen alongside Dan Walker, who is currently wowing viewers as one of the Strictly Come Dancing 2021 contestants

And when it comes to what Louise has been getting up to whilst her friend and former colleague is putting his dancing skills to the test, it seems she’s been seriously busy. After previously taking on a new challenge weeks after her BBC Breakfast departure, Louise has now announced the incredible news that she’s bringing out a brand new book.
