Dan Walker is enjoying a week away from BBC Breakfast this half term, however an argument ensued on day three of his time off. The BBC Breakfast presenter and self-proclaimed “president of Egg Club” shared a carousel of pictures on Instagram of his children decorating a stairway, commenting “hopefully a good memory from lockdown”.

The TV presenter shared the comical goings-on with his 167,000 followers on Instagram yesterday.

Alongside a picture of a freshly painted staircase, the TV personality wrote: “Today we painted the stairs down to the basement/cellar… with the kids,” followed by a shocked and laughing emoji.

He continued: “Arguments one, ruined shoes two, paint covered items of clothing two, proud children – full set.

“Hopefully a good memory from lockdown 3.0 #HalfTerm.”

The broadcaster included two more pictures in his post.

The second snap was of his son and one of his daughters hard at work transforming the walls, from an eggshell hue to a shade of sea-foam green.

The TV host had covered his children’s faces with giant smiley faced emojis.

A third picture featured a paint-stained loafer, which Dan referred to in his caption as one of the “paint covered items of clothing”.

This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes liked the post and Dan’s followers were quick to comment on the pictures.

One wrote: “Good job”, with three thumbs up emojis.

Another added: “Excellent work”, commenting on the state of the paint job by the two junior decorators.

However, some of Dan’s followers were more interested in the use of the basement.

“A wine cellar?” one asked along with a picture of a glass of wine, as another quipped: “Cellar, isn’t that where the wines kept?”

Dan’s insight into his home life comes just days after he spoke candidly about coming to the aid of an alcoholic.

It comes after the 43-year-old’s chance meeting with Tony Foulds, who tends a park memorial which honours 10 airmen who died when their plane crashed in Sheffield 76 years ago.

Following a social media-led campaign, a flypast was successfully organised for the crash memorial at Endcliffe Park where thousands of people gathered – including the BBC Breakfast team – to honour the airmen who died.

Dan has since met with Tony when they were approached by a woman who was struggling with alcoholism.

The presenter revealed: “She said, ‘I’ve been desperate to speak to the two of you for about 18 months and catch you together.'”

“The lady said, ‘I just wanted to say that I was an alcoholic for 30 years and that morning on the flypast I was at home in bed. I had been drinking all night.”

He continued : “‘I looked at the park and I saw all of these people, and wanted to be a part of that so I came down and stood at the front.

“I was a bit sozzled but met some incredible people and a feeling of unity came over me.'”

Dan said: “She felt a sway of emotion. The woman told me, ‘It gave me the instinct to try again and I’ve not touched a drop of alcohol since.”
