A Twitter user wrote: “Lovely to see Rebecca Adlington talking about BBC coverage of the Olympics @BBCSport @BBCBreakfast @sallynugent but no mention of @wwfcofficial winning League 1 playoffs last night?”

Wycombe Wanderers will play in the second tier of English football for the first time next season after beating Oxford United in the League One play-off final at Wembley.

Responding to the viewer, Sally clarified: “We had @wwfcofficial in every single bulletin.”

Another Twitter user tweeted Bill, who supports the football club and is a regular commentator on home games for online listeners.

They wrote: “I bet @billtu wouldn’t have let that happen!”

He jokingly replied: “Composing my letter to the Director general right now.”

“It was in EVERY bulletin. Just for you,” Sally replied alongside a blowing a kiss emoji.

Bill replied: “Never doubted you for a second.”

Sally also responded to a BBC viewer who queried Manchester United’s mention in the news bulletin.

They wrote: “@BBCBreakfast @sallynugent Did Manchester United play last night in a crucial and dramatic game?

“Did you not think it might be worth a mention in your ‘Sport’ update?”

She clarified: “Yes. It’s been in all my sport updates this morning. It’s our lead story.”

Elsewhere, Bill was pictured at the League One play-off final to cheer on his team earlier this week.

He previously said of supporting the team: “We used to live in Buckinghamshire, just outside Beaconsfield, and so Wycombe used to do football camps during school holidays and my kids went to that, and then there was the famous FA Cup run when they reached the cup semi-final in 2001.

“That’s really what got us hooked, me and my two sons (daughter occasionally),” he added on the Wycombe Wanderers’ official website.
