It was meant to be a lovely, sunny edition of BBC Breakfast. "Today's to be the hottest of the year so far," the BBC1 magazine show tweeted brightly first thing, "so @carolkirkwood's on the beach, with producer Gilly's dog, Connie!" The tweet came with a picture of Carol and Connie, but this relationship was about to be tainted for ever.

Halfway through a live heatwave roundup from the beautiful sandy beaches of West Wittering in Sussex, Connie's carefree gambolling took a darker turn. See the harrowing video below.

BBC Breakfast sought to play down the incident, later tweeting: "Soooo... that was awkward. Rest assured: our sources tell us it was a number one."
