Author Michael Morpurgo has been reunited with his most famous creation.

The giant puppet of Joey from the stage adaptation of War Horse was brought onto the BBC Breakfast set as the former Children's Laureate was being interviewed.

It was a birthday surprise for the author, who turns 70 on the 5th of October.
