Good Morning Britain’s Jake Humphrey Gets South African Airline Trip Back Home

Good Morning Britain presenter Jake Humphrey has secured a return flight to Britain on a charter plane from South Africa.

The 37-year-old news presenter will leave Cape Town on Thursday morning and fly to London on a plane belonging to South African Airways, BBC News reported.

Humphrey’s wife, Sophie Muggleton, posted an Instagram video of Jake taking off from the Silverhill Airport and said “hope you’re staying in the UK, I’m in Cape Town.”

The tweet was later deleted, but was re-tweeted thousands of times by users complimenting Humphrey on his skill for staying in touch with fans.

Upon the news of his flight the South African Council for Tourism tweeted to Humphrey to “see you in Cape Town on Thursday.”

Humphrey plays a reporter for the ITV show today that covers stories from around the world.

On Twitter, Humphrey joked about his good fortune saying the flight to London was at 9,000 feet and would include a stopover at Heathrow before flying to Cardiff, UK.

Humphrey told Jenna Bush Hager he is currently filming the news programme at the age of 37 and was just 17 when he started out.

“It feels like I’ve always been there, really,” he said.

“I have a lot of work ahead of me.”
