David Campbell storms off the Today Extra set

‘I’ve got to go’: David Campbell slams his hands down on the desk and storms off the Today Extra set leaving co-host Sonia Kruger puzzled

David Campbell slammed his hands down on the desk and walked off the Today Extra set on Monday.

The 45-year-old left Sonia Kruger puzzled when he declared during the final segment, ‘we gotta go.’

After stashing his belongings in the pockets of his suit jacket, the breakfast TV star quickly hurried his co-host along.

At the conclusion of the show, Sonia, 53, told viewers: ‘Thanks so much for joining us everyone.’

Wasting no time, David grabbed hold of his reading glasses, pen and iPhone, and said: ‘Yep, Merry Christmas. We gotta go.’

Finding his behaviour rather amusing, Sonia said in between laughs: ‘You packing up?’ to which he responded: ‘We’ve got to catch a flight. We’ve got [hosting the] Carols.’

‘I have to remind you for this stuff?’ David said jokingly, before slamming his hands down on the desk in jest.

David then proceeded to run around the desk back to his dressing room, telling Sonia to run ‘faster’.

David and Sonia are to set to host Carols by Candlelight in Melbourne on Monday night.

Hosting the televised singalong means David misses Christmas Eve with wife Lisa, his son Leo, eight, and three-year-old twins Billy and Betty, but they will be on his mind.

‘I get really emotional… (I) think about when Leo was a baby and what Christmas means to us,’ he told Perth Now on Sunday.

‘I’m a nostalgic dad, I get misty-eyed at the drop of a hat, so it never ever gets old for me,’ he said.

‘Probably the older I get, the more emotional I get.’
