    In the video, Naga Munchetty and Ben Thompson could be seen on a monitor presenting the day's episode of BBC Breakfast, while Thomas Schafernaker was on the screen beside them sharing the latest weather updates.

    As the newsreader filmed her co-stars she could be heard saying: "On the monitor here, three of my absolute favourite people, all broadcasting simultaneously, elsewhere on the BBC.

    "I've got Thomas Schafernaker, legend, fashion hero….yeah….and I've got Naga here who is just a wonder woman, she is such a good soul and a good person and a great friend and I am so lucky to have her in my life."

    Ben and Naga could be seen having a giggle on the sofa as Victoria continued: ""I don't know what Ben is up to, what is he doing? He's on great form as well, I saw him for breakfast the other day and yeah, he's great.

    "No one ever has a bad day with Ben Thompson. Look at those, heroes."

    The sweet tribute continued in the caption as Victoria wrote: "One thing I’ll miss is the people. These three are just wonderful. And all happen to be on air right now.

    "Brilliant broadcasters, pin sharp journalists & generous, compassionate friends. What a stroke of luck to come to know @TVNaga01 @BenThompsonTV & @Schafernaker."

    Victoria revealed she had quit working for the BBC and is now heading back to university to obtain a masters degree in psychological science.

    She explained: "I am taking a little bit of a break from broadcasting and from the BBC in order to explore something new.

    "So I – at the grand old age of 39 – going back to university. I am enrolled in a full time masters course, psychological sciences which I've kind of sold to my parents as a bit of neuroscience with some thinking and feeling stuff attached to it.

    "You can probably understand why that would appeal and be something I'm interested in."
