Mike Bushell: Strictly star finally returns to BBC Breakfast job after ‘unpaid leave’

MIKE BUSHELL - star of the 2019 series of Strictly Come Dancing - took to Twitter this week to reveal he is set to return to the BBC Breakfast sofa in two weeks time and he was already back shooting.

Mike Bushell, 54, said it was “great” to be back filming for BBC Breakfast this week.

The Strictly Come Dancing star, who took time off from his presenting duties to take part in the BBC ballroom dancing show and subsequent Live! tour, will officially return to the sofa in two weeks time.

On Wednesday he took to Twitter to share a picture of himself on location with a member of the BBC Breakfast team as they filmed an upcoming sports segment.

A grinning Mike could be seen in a dark padded jumper and spotty shirt alongside his casually-dressed co-worker in the social media snap.

The TV star captioned the post, which he shared with his 55,700 followers: “Great to be back filming today with @ksadders for a special thing coming soon on @BBCBreakfast.”

He went on to add: “Great to reminisce about some of the 100s of sports we have filmed together.”

Over the years, Mike has tried a number of different sports and activities for his segment on the show, including some weird and wonderful pastimes such as shin kicking and swamp soccer.
