BBC News presenter Simon McCoy 'caught sleeping at his desk live on air'
BBC breakfast news anchor Simon McCoy was apparently caught out living the dream today, as he slept at his desk while at work, prompting a few red faces at the BBC and some light-hearted jibes from co-host Martine Croxall.

McCoy, who has been a BBC News anchor since 2004, was seen napping on his desk during a live bulletin on the rolling digital news channel just before 8.30am.
The 50-year-old presenter was caught resting his head on his desk during the broadcast, while Martine Croxall appeared to look slightly uncomfortable in her upright position next to him.
