Dan Walker, who recently released his book Remarkable People, has revealed that two out of his three children were not too keen on his latest offering. The presenter, who tied the knot with his wife Sarah in 2001, resides in Sheffield with the couple’s offspring; son Joe, 10, daughters Susanna, 13, and Jessica, 11.
The 43-year-old opened up about his family’s reaction to his book, which gives an insight into the extraordinary stories of the people the broadcaster has encountered during his long-standing career.
Dan, who has been a presenter on Breakfast for the past six years, “poured his soul” into the release.
However, the doting dad confessed that two of his children were not as enthusiastic.
“My eldest daughter is really excited about reading [my book],” Dan explained. “I don’t really know why.”
The presenter commented that she also accompanied him to an online book event where he discussed his new offering.
Dan said: “Joe, doesn’t really care.
“Jessica is just disappointed I didn’t call the book what she wanted me to call it.”
He added: “They’re so brutal. But I poured my soul into this book.”
The presenter said that while working on his latest project he ran ideas past his other half Sarah.
“My wife hasn’t read all of it but I’ve told her quite a lot about it,” Dan remarked.
“She has been really helpful and I’ve talked to her about every chapter.”
He gushed: “She’s very wise my wife.”
Dan’s book Remarkable People recounts inspiring stories of those that he has met throughout his broadcasting career.

The presenter shines a light on those people who have shown selflessness and provided courage, even during challenging times.
Touching on the importance, Dan said: “What I really wanted people to take from the book, is that struggling is not failing.
“We all face struggles in life and for some people that battle is an illness, stress, abuse whatever it might be.”
He added: “It’s possible to not only change your own circumstances but to have a significant impact on the people around you.”
Meanwhile, Dan has been noticeably absent from the Breakfast sofa, as he takes some time away from the show to spend time with his family.
The TV star has since addressed his return to the BBC news programme in a candid tweet.
Dan remarked: “Back next week hopefully. Just spending some time at home with the family. Can’t go on holiday obviously but enjoying a daily dog walk.”
