TV presenter Dan Walker is covering King Charles’s Coronation this weekend on Channel 5 but has been forced to quit his attempt to travel to the royal celebrations by bike.

Taking to his socials, the former Football Focus host revealed exactly why he wasn’t able to cycle to cover the Coronation.

On Twitter, Dan posted: “Just got absolutely drenched in a huge thunderstorm in London. Abandoning plans to cycle to Buckingham Palace for tonight’s Channel 5 news.”

He added: “See you at 5 on 5… need a few hours with a hair dryer first.”

Followers were quick to quip and send well wishes to the presenter, with one user replying: “Go steady on that bike mate please.”

Another said: “Oh no hope it’s not on its way to Sussex sunshine here yesterday I was caught in massive rain storm.”

While a third replied: “Love the yellow bike Dan. Hope you have a matching bright yellow jacket to try & avoid another mishap. Enjoy the #Coronation.”

For now, it seems the presenter has dried out and is preparing to cover the Coronation celebrations. He later tweeted a picture with some royal fans wearing masks and wrote: “Met the Royal family today. Special times Full story on @5_News later.”

Those keen on watching the Coronation have been at Buckingham Palace throughout the day, preparing to celebrate King Charles III’s Coronation that will take place, Saturday May 6.

Earlier today royal fans were greeted by the Prince and Princess of Wales. Kate, dressed in white, appeared relaxed and welcoming to speak to the crowd, with William also happy to interact with the waiting crowd.
