BBC news presenter Simon McCoy was caught taking a nap at the beginning of Breakfast show. It was actually a 'good' morning for the viewers who couldn't stop laughing at the unusual start to the programme.

The 50-year-old's head was rested down when the cameras panned towards him, reported Daily Mail. His co-host Martine Croxall was also present to deliver the bulletin but guess she wasn't aware of McCoy's snooze bout.

When realisation struck him, he was shocked and bleary-eyed. Sleeping live on camera isn't something he's used to after all.

Viewers took to Twitter to poke fun at him:

Vikki B: 'Did I just imagine that? £bbcnews cuts to the news desk and fella is asleep on the desk and jumps up in shock! Haha.'

Ismat Abidi: 'Never fall asleep at your desk, especially when you're a news anchor.'



Hannah Lindley: 'Hahahah just showed the local news and he was asleep on the desk!'
