BBC Breakfasts Nina Warhurst teases name change with new official title

BBC Breakfast presenter Nina Warhurst has joked she is changing her name after a fan pitched a hilarious new nickname for her.

On Sunday's instalment of the morning programme, the 42-year-old hosted alongside Radio 5 Live presenter Rachel Burden who stepped in for Roger Johnson.

Taking to Twitter to gush over her co-host, Rachel shared a snap of the duo on the red sofa with the caption: "She has the best smile in the business. Lovely sitting next to @NinaWarhurst this morning @BBCBreakfast."

While many of the radio star's followers were quick to comment on what a brilliant pairing they made, another simply penned: "The Pastie Barm Lady…love her."

Spotting the message, the BBC business correspondent replied with two laughing emojis before reposting it on her personal Twitter account.

Alongside the tweet, she joked: "Please use my official title from now on. Thanks."

It seems the fan was referencing Nina's recent appearance on BBC Breakfast where chatted to hosts Jon Kay and Sally Nugent about pasties after visiting a bakers.

The conversation began when Jon and Sally recounted the story of a Cornish pasty being sent into space via helium balloon, which reminded Nina of a time she had "never been angrier" with her husband.

She confessed: "Do you know what? I can take or leave a Cornish pasty. I know that'll be controversial.

"The ratio of filling to pastry is not for me," the mum-of-two explained. "There's too much pastry round the edge."

The presenter then said to Sally: "Can I tell you what happened yesterday? I took a steak slice home, really looking forward to it for my lunch.

"Came downstairs and my husband said, 'Delicious steak slice, that'."

She fumed: "Barely. I don't think I've ever been angrier with him, or with anyone."

"He's about to be minced and put in a pasty!," Jon exclaimed.
