Presenter Louise Minchin has announced that she is leaving BBC Breakfast as she marks 20 years on the show.

Minchin made the announcement on Tuesday's show, adding that "it's not going to be for a while".

In a statement, she said: "I have absolutely loved being part of the six million-strong BBC Breakfast family but, after nearly two decades presenting the programme, I have decided it is time I stopped setting my alarm for 03.40 in the morning.

"I will take so many memories with me, including reporting on the shock and anguish of the Manchester Arena bombing; starting a national conversation about menopause; and the life-changing moment I took part in the Breakfast Christmas Cycling Challenge, which inspired my ongoing passion for endurance sport, which I will continue when I leave.

"A big thank you to everyone who has watched and supported me. I have loved it and I will miss you all."
