BBC Breakfast star Carol Kirkwood delighted viewers of the show on Tuesday morning as she made a rare appearance on the red sofa alongside hosts Sally Nugent and Jon Kay.

The Scottish star frequently presents the forecast from various locations across the UK, most recently broadcasting from Leamington Spa and Wimbledon. However, during the latest edition of the programme, Carol joined her co-stars in the studio to share the latest weather news.

Carol is a popular presenter on the show and often keeps viewers entertained with her weather reports. 

Last week, the 61-year-old was praised by fans as she delivered the forecast whilst surrounded by a litter of puppies at the Guide Dog National Centre in Leamington Spa.

It's been an exciting few months for Carol, who is set to embark on a new challenge away from BBC Breakfast

The presenter will soon be heading off on a four-day steam train journey through Scotland, accompanied by a group of fans. 

The excursion will cost participants £1,495 per ticket, which will include, a trip on the Falkirk Wheel, a castle visit and three boat rides. Carol is also expected to give a talk on her love of her native country, growing up in Morar, her TV career and her time as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing.

Carol is also preparing to walk down the aisle following her engagement to former police officer Steve Randall in May last year. 

Speaking about her upcoming nuptials in a recent interview with Yours magazine, she said: "I think it will be a small, intimate wedding and maybe we'll have a party afterwards."
