BBC Breakfast's Sally Nugent shut down co-host Jon Kay after he took a brutal swipe at her age.

The pair were back together hosting from the red sofa today after their respective Christmas breaks.

However, Jon, 53, put his foot in it as he spoke to sports presenter Holly Hamilton about the tennis ahead of the Australian Open which starts later this month.

Holly said: "The Australian Open starts two weeks today. I say this every year, it creeps up on me.

"It's like a surprise. It happens every January."

Jon replied: "I can't believe that was a year ago" as both Sally and Holly agreed.

He added: "We're getting old, that's the thing! Time passes too quickly."

But Sally, 51, was having none of it and hit back: "Speak for yourself."

Thankfully the pair were in good spirits and laughed about Jon's comment.

While Jon had returned to BBC Breakfast last week, Sally was on the red sofa for the first time since Christmas today.
