Carol Kirkwood marked a major milestone on Monday 23rd April, with the weather presenter celebrating 20 years with BBC Breakfast.
Since moving from The Weather Channel to the BBC in 1998, Carol has delivered more than 17,000 forecasts for BBC Breakfast. And as well as being named RadioTimes.com’s readers’ second-favourite weather presenter (behind Tomasz Schafernaker), Kirkwood has also won the Television and Radio Industries Club award for best weather presenter nine times.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I can't believe I have had the pleasure of presenting the weather on @BBCBreakfast for the last 20 years! Where has that time gone?! I love my job and work with the loveliest people on the planet both in front of and behind the camera
To mark the occasion, Breakfast then played a compilation of Kirkwood’s best – and most embarrassing – moments on the box, including clips of her speeding away in a motorised bathtub and forgetting her co-presenters names.
