Carol Kirkwood, 59, has had her fair share of embarrassing blunders on BBC Breakfast over the years. The weather forecaster recently took the opportunity to respond to a viewer who brought up an issue that she would like to forget.

The meteorologist previously revealed she almost got into “trouble” with BBC bosses.

It comes after Carol mistakenly announced she and her cameraman had been “watching doggers all morning” while reporting on location from Greenwich Park while on-air last year.

Earlier this week, the small-screen star suffered another on-air mishap after her dog demonstration went wrong.

Taking to Twitter, the official BBC Breakfast played a clip of the incident which saw Carol be dragged to the ground by a Labrador.

They penned: “@carolkirkwood down! Flash the guide dog is running the show on #BBCBreakfast this morning.”

A social media user couldn’t resist but mention Carol’s on-air “doggers” blunder in 2020.

Gary Smollen penned: “Funny as always @carolkirkwood. Almost as funny as the dogger v jogger incident lol.”(sic)

Carol appeared mortified that the Twitter user would bring up her embarrassing mishap.


In view of her 210,000 followers, she wrote: “Nooooooooo! Don’t bring that up again Gaz.”

Gary responded: “So funny!”

The BBC Breakfast weather presenter has previously opened up about that particular incident.

Chatting with host Louise Minchin and Olympian Annie Emmerson, Carol cringed as she addressed the blunder.

“This was a horrendous one,” she winced, recalling being left completely mortified during the live report.

“I was in Greenwich park and I was with a different cameraman who wanted to rehearse what I was going to say during my spiel before the weather.”

The presenter giggled: “During the live, I came out with, ‘Good morning, well, we’ve been watching doggers all morning in Greenwich Park!’

“And then I said, ‘Not doggers!’ – so I said it again!”

Meanwhile, Carol updated concerned fans following her fall with a guide dog, named Flash, on the show this week.

She said: “Flash is absolutely adorable (and neither of us got hurt)xxx.”

This was in response to the official Guide Dogs Twitter page’s post about the incident.

They tweeted: “And Flash is forgiven.

“Only to be expected that @carolkirkwood fell “head over heels” for our amazing trainee guide dog pup #RHSChelsea #GuideDogs90.”

BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
