Louise Minchin is looking forward to being able to have a much-needed lie-in once she leaves BBC Breakfast.

The presenter announced in June that she would be leaving her stint after almost 20 years on the iconic red sofa and is excited at the prospect of being able to set her alarm hours later than usual.

Speaking to her co-star Dan Walker about her soon-to-be coffee regime, Louise confessed that her usual six o’clock tipple will be ‘delayed by about three hours’.

‘I only have one coffee a day now because I did learn after I started drinking too many and it made me a bit jittery,’ she said.

‘So it’s just the one a day, that’s all I’m allowed. It will be at nine o’clock from two week’s time. I’m very much looking forward to the nine o’clock alarm.’

Louise’s last appearance on the programme will take place on Wednesday, September 15.

Last week, Dan asked if she’d had second thoughts over her departure, prompting Louise to confess that she had been having ‘extraordinarily vivid’ anxiety dreams over it.

‘It’s huge,’ she giggled. ‘I’m absolutely, 100% [on the decision]. I know it’s the right thing for me to do.

‘Of course, there’s a huge amount of nerves etc, I’m having the most extraordinarily vivid anxiety dreams which are keeping me awake! They’re unpublishable!’

Louise also vowed that she would still be watching Breakfast, but is also revelling in being able to sleep in.

‘I’m planning some really long swims which I’m really looking forward to, and getting back to running, as well, because you know I had my injury last year, I’m still going back to trying to get running, back to marathons,’ she added.

BBC Breakfast airs daily at 6am on BBC One.
