I've discovered since that it seems to happen with certain bbc.co.uk URLs.

To Open the links you can simply follow these steps:-
Step 1: Tap the menu button ( The three horizontal colons )
Step 2: Tap Settings.
Step 3: Scroll down to the advanced section, next to Open links in apps use the slider button to turn this ON.

I already had that ON. The problem is that, when I tap on this link in WhatsApp, it appears to open my BBC app within the WhatsApp app!!
