BBC Breakfast’s business presenter Victoria Fritz went into labour after coming off air, with one of her fellow presenters acting as her birthing partner.
Presenter Sally Nugent stepped in after Fritz’s husband was stuck on the motorway.
Fritz later gave birth to a baby boy at St Mary’s Hospital in Manchester.
The baby had been due to arrive in early December but Fritz’s waters broke after she came off air.
Fritz tweeted her “heartfelt thanks” for the BBC Breakfast “team effort”.
