BBC Breakfast weather presenter Carol Kirkwood has had an exciting career to date – but there is one thing she "regrets" not doing in her professional life.
The 58-year-old revealed that if she had her time over again, she would keep a journal to jot down all the incredible things she has achieved throughout her TV career.

"My biggest regret is not keeping a journal," Carol, who parted ways from her husband of 18 years, Jimmy Kirkwood, back in 2008, confessed.
"I’ve had the most amazing experiences through my job. I got to fly with the Red Arrows, skydive with the Red Devils and meet the Queen at Sandringham, so I wish I’d written it all down."
The meteorologist also shared a trait she possesses which helps her to stand out in her role. "Not a lot of people know this, but I’m very good at remembering things," she told the Express.
Carol has enjoyed many perks to her job
"When I’m on location I don’t have any prompts – no monitors, no autocue, nothing." She continued: "I’ve got to remember where I am, who I’m speaking to and what I need to ask.
"Then, I get into the weather and I have to talk over moving graphics that I can’t see, so I need to have a mental image of what’s going on. It’s a lot!"

Carol Kirkwood is the face of BBC weather
Carol - who is known for being the face of BBC Breakfast's weather - joined the corporation as a secretary after studying commerce at an Edinburgh college. She never set out to become a meteorologist.
Speaking about her 2.45am early starts, Carol admitted it has left her with "permanent jet lag".
In an interview with Radio Times back in 2018, she shared: "It's lights out by half-past. I used to work five days a week on Breakfast. I cut it back to four days but I'm still always sleep-deficient. It's like having permanent jet lag."
