The presenter was in great spirits early in the morning, unlike Dan who wasn’t in the mood for a photo.
The host put his hand up to the camera lens to hide his face, after waking up late for work.
Louise captioned the image: “Good morning, @mrdanwalker won’t take part in my #selfieseries today because his alarm didn’t go off! #BBCBreakfast.”
Dan re-posted the image to his Instagram account and added he needed some time to adjust himself.
“Still had the sleep creases in my face,” he said. “Just needed a few minutes to sort myself out #BBCbreakfast.”
One person joked in the comment section on his picture: “I creased up when I read that!”
Another wrote: “You must remember your night cream.”
A third praised Louise: “And yet Lou looks stunning as always…”
Meanwhile, Dan revealed his outrage at a photography company in the United States who are offering airbrushing services to school children’s portrait
He responded to a post on Twitter which showed a school photograph form along with the editing options.
They included “evening” the child’s skin, “removing” blemishes and “whitening teeth”.
He replied to the tweet: “Utter shambles. Worst life lesson ever.”
The original tweet came from BBC Radio 5 Live presenter, Sam Walker, who has young children aged 12 and eight.
She wrote: “The girls have their school photo today and there is the option to AIRBRUSH the picture!
“There are two levels offered!! What the….?! Have complained! What 8 yr old needs to be paranoid about an ‘uneven skin tone’.”
And, yesterday, Dan brought up the issue again and said there had been a huge reaction to the photo shared online, which he called “daft and dangerous”.
“Huge reaction to the American school offering ‘retouching’ (teeth whitening, evening skin tone, blemish removal) to the parents of 8-year-olds in school pictures,” he said.
“Truly daft and dangerous,” Dan continued and added alongside a young photo of himself: “I wonder if someone could remove my ‘mum cut’ & power cardigan from this one #BBCbreakfast.”
BBC Breakfast airs on BBC One at 6am today.
