BBC Breakfast's Sally Nugent and John Kay were left giggling after they branded weather presenter Carol Kirkwood as the "most normal" member of the cast.

Show regulars John and Sally passed over to their co-star Carol so that she could inform viewers about the current weather situation.

The UK is experiencing a heatwave and a drought, so sudden rain and expected thunderstorms may bring flash flooding for some.

After Carol gave her forecast, she passed back to John and Sally in the BBC studio.

John breathed a sigh of relief and said: "Almost normal."

He then clarified that he meant "the weather, not Carol," and Sally giggled.

She responded with: "Carol's the most normal out of all of us!"

Sally's cheeky comment comes as Carol has recently shared fears over leaving her job as a weather presenter for the early morning news show.

Kirkwood has admitted that she is worried to face the axe due to concerns about her age and said that her exit may be within the next 10 years.

The 60-year-old has been with the show since 2000 and with BBC News since 1998.

Carol has revealed that she would like to be with the show way into the future, but reckons she won't be around the BBC studios at 70-years-old.

In an interview with Western Mail, Carol opened up about her career woes.

She said: "Hopefully it will be natural, but I also have to acknowledge I’m 60 and [I'm] unlikely to be at the BBC when I’m 70, I would have thought. It’s the natural course of events. I don’t want to be using a stairlift to get to the studio in the morning, but I love my job."

Carol has recently had to wave goodbye to her colleague Dan Walker after he moved to Channel 5.

Louise Minchin left in June 2021, with Carol's other pals Bill Turnbull, Natasha Kaplinsky, Sian Williams, Susanna Reid and Jeremy Bowen all having left prior.
