A 'sexist' sofa?

You couldn't make this stuff up

Viewers hit out at the BBC accusing bosses of favouritism based on where presenters sit on its Breakfast show.

Dan Walker, 38, joined the 'more experienced' Louise Minchin on the sofa at the end of last month and has been sitting in 'camera left' position.

It is the same spot as his predecessor Bill Turnbull, who left after 15 years, and is often seen in the industry as a position of seniority.

And disgruntled viewers spoke of their anger at what they believe is a snub to Minchin.

Adele Clarke, from Cheshire, wrote to the Radio Times saying:  'I was annoyed to see 'new boy' Dan Walker seated on the left, in Bill Turnbull's own place, while far more experienced news presenter Louise Minchin remained in the 'number two' position on the right.

'How long will it take the BBC (and most other news stations) to catch up with the rest of us in the 21st century? Be brave – try seating a woman on the left and see how the world will keep turning.'
