Mark, who wakes up for work at 3:30am each week day, added: ‘And on Friday nights, we are so tired – you’re just exhausted a lot.’

But the presenter added that the lack of sleep is a small price to pay for the top TV job, while gushing over co-hosts Samantha Armytage, David Koch and Natalie Barr.

‘But I love it, and it’s a privilege. I work with an incredible team who I continually admire and respect,’ he continued.
