Dan Walker in awkward golf blunder sparking major damage at home

Channel 5 News presenter Dan Walker, 46, shared with his 800,000 Twitter followers two photos of his cracked TV screen.

He posted: “Do you remember when you said you chipped a golf ball into the TV but you didn’t think you’d done any damage?”

In one photo, Dan could be seen with an embarrassed expression on his face through the reflection of the TV where he showed a close up shot of the screen damage.
He also shared a photo of a golf ball on the screen moments before the TV went blank.

His followers quickly responded with replies such as: “Why oh why” and “Most of it still works!”.

The Sheffield-based presenter often shares his daily moments and behind-the-scenes on social media with his fans.

However, with the recent turnaround of management of the social platform, he is one of a growing list of public figures who confirmed he would not pay for a legacy blue tick on Twitter.

He joked about having lost his mark of verification, posting: “Apparently I need million followers to get the blue tick back. (sic)

“Have a lovely Sunday my friends. I’m off for some toast and peanut butter.” (sic)

TV presenter Richard Osman, 52, continued the banter with: “You got lucky”, followed by a laughing emoji.

Dan referenced to the toast, and asked: “Are you getting the “you paid for your tick” rage?”.

The former Pointless co-presenter then answered with: “I am indeed. Toast will make it better though.”

However, there was good news for fans as Dan confirmed for fans that his missing people series was renewed for a second season.

Hosting the final episode of Vanished: The Hunt for Britain’s Missing People, he confirmed that the programme would return later in the year.

The episode was particularly poignant, featuring the Missing People Choir, who rehearsed a rendition of Duran Duran’s ‘Ordinary World’.

He thanked “the brilliant team” at ITN Productions with a photo after managing director Ian Rumsey confirmed the news.

Users immediately reacted positively to the news with fans commenting: “Such a great program to raise awareness of missing people in the UK.

“This needs to be on every week… It’s a programme that is needed!!!” (sic)
