"I can't claim to be very good at it — but I do at least have the belly for it these days."

Last week she sat down with Alex Jones on The One Show and was left blushing when she made a cheeky reference about her new boyfriend.

"Your face is lit up talking about it," Alex told Carol as she described her novel. She then added: "Now between us, and the viewers and nobody else has your own relationship inspire... you haven't talked about it, have you? And it has been going on for a while. Oh, you should see him."

Carol couldn't help but laugh and blush at the comments made by Alex, who then added: "Has your own relationship inspired this romance?"

"Not in the slightest. My relationship is straightforward, this one isn't. There are red herrings that take you here, there and everywhere. Lots of plots, lots of turns and twists in this tale," the weather presenter added.

Not giving up in her quest to find out more about the 59-year-old's new romance, Alex stated: "But the feeling of falling in love must have lifted you to a point where you can write about it."
