BBC Breakfast's Carol Kirkwood mortified as she forgets co-star's name during live weather report

BBC Breakfast's Carol Kirkwood was left mortified after she forgot her co-star's name during a live weather report.

Carol, 58, has spent much of the week working alongside Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

But on Thursday's show, the main presenters were Ben Thompson and Naga Munchetty.

However, Carol appeared to forget the presenters had changed as she carried out one of her live weather reports, referring to Dan instead of Ben.

She said: "Perhaps on Sunday there will be a bit more cloud around, but again that is open to question. Dan and Naga."

Carol quickly released her mistake, and cried: "Ben!" before adding: "I could of got away with that one."



Ben replied: "I used to like you Carol" which lead Naga to joke: "That’s the biggest shock, Ben liking anyone!"

Later in the show, Naga couldn't help but joke again about the blunder by telling the forecaster: "Carol, I have Ben by me here."

Earlier in the week Carol shared a joke with Dan as she pretended to not listen to what he was saying.

Dan had wanted to discuss the latest episode of Line of Duty however Carol and Louise hadn't seen it so didn't want any spoilers.

As he cut to Carol, who was outside for her broadcast, he said: "Carol, I hope you had your ears closed and not listening to anything when we were talking about Line of Duty earlier.”

“Absolutely right, Dan,” Carol replied before cheekily shutting him down: “As usual, actually.”

The BBC presenters were left in hysterics at Carol’s swipe before Dan hit back: “How dare you?!”

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays from 6am on BBC One.
