Bill Turnbull, 64, worked alongside his former colleague Susanna Reid, 49, for two years on BBC Breakfast until her move to ITV’s Good Morning Britain in 2014. The Classic FM host has since responded to a Twitter user after they made a cheeky comment about the former presenting duo.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, the person in question replied to a behind-the-scenes photo of Bill and Susanna sitting beside each other on the famous BBC Breakfast red sofa during their time together on the show.
The social media user quizzed “whatever happened” to both presenters.
They wrote: “Great picture and wonderful memories with @billtu and @susannareid100. I wonder what ever happened to them…”
Bill replied to the comment, writing: “Been wondering that myself.”

The former BBC Breakfast star reunited with Susanna earlier this year, after he stepped in to replace Piers Morgan on GMB, as the outspoken journalist took a break from his hosting duties.
It also marked Bill’s first time back on live television after he quit the BBC Breakfast show in 2016 after being diagnosed with prostate cancer.
The pair have remained close as the Classic FM DJ recently launched his new podcast, with Susanna being his first guest.
The podcast features famous faces talking about the pets in their lives, and what they mean to them.
Susanna revealed how Bill helped her son overcome his fear of animals.
The GMB host has three boys with her former partner, Dominic Cotton, who she split from in 2014.
Susanna stated: “It wasn’t just cats he was scared of, he was petrified of dogs as well. And you at the time had two dogs or three?”
Bill confirmed he had two black labradors, before she said her son was “very wary” of them, at first.

She continued: “You sort of managed to break his fear of animals that day, using a technique which I am sure is universal to children the world over.
“Look, if you throw a ball for them, because you love playing with balls, why don’t you do that and see what the dog does?”
Susanna added: “It was in that moment that his fear of animals and what they were going to do to him completely dispelled, and he realised they’re just kind, lovely, interactive things that want to play with you.”
Meanwhile, Bill recently returned to BBC Breakfast to discuss his incurable cancer and how he is coping in lockdown.

The former BBC co-host revealed in 2018 that he had advanced prostate cancer, and has been highlighting the disease and raising awareness ever since.
But with concerns that people are not going to their doctor with symptoms because of fears about the coronavirus, Bill says, “the worst thing is to die of embarrassment” and urged people to get checked out.
He explained: “If you have aches and pains that you can’t explain, like I had for months on end.
“I had things that were wrong with me and I thought it would pass. I ended up in a situation where my treatments are not going to be so effective.
Bill finished: “Catch it early, and you can live a normal life.”
Bill Turnbull’s Classic FM show continues today at 10am, while Good Morning Britain returns Monday at 6am on ITV.
