Carol began her TV career at the age of 30, working on a now-defunct cable TV channel, Windsor TV, in 1992. While she had previously presented short slots on BBC Radio Scotland, and then BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 4, her first on-screen role at the BBC was as a freelance presenter in 1993.

The star, who was married to Olympian Jimmy Kirkwood at the time, then went on to join BBC News in 1998, and has since appeared across all of BBC Weather's output on radio and television programmes such as BBC News, BBC World News, BBC News at Six.
Carol is the main weather presenter on BBC Breakfast and has seen various hosts come and go over the years.
A particularly memorable moment from Carol's time on the show so far was when she announced her engagement to her fiancé Steve live on the programme.
