“Since then I’ve felt part of a huge, enormous BBC Breakfast family which includes everyone who works here, everyone on the team and every one of you who watches the programme.
“I’ve loved being part of it but – there is a but – I’ve decided that is time that I stop setting my alarm for 3.40 – sometimes if I’m feeling really rebellious 3.46 in the morning – and I’m going to be leaving the programme.
“It’s not going to be for a while,” she added. “But before anything else I wanted to thank everyone that is watching for your loyalty and your support over all those years.
“I have absolutely loved being part of it and I will really miss it, but it’s time now to stop that alarm early in the morning. And thank you for watching for all these years.”
Louise first presented the BBC One morning show in 2001.
She became one of the leading presenters at the BBC in 2012.
