Carol Kirkwood is back presenting the weather report on BBC Breakfast after taking a short holiday from the show. Presenting the weather report from the Chelsea Flower Show, Carol was joined with guide dog Flash who had previously been in the studio. However, as Carol ended one of her reports, Flash seemingly decided to take over from the show, dragging Carol to the floor.

 

The 59-year-old weather presenter had given her forecast from Chelsea when the Golden Labrador ran off-screen with Carol still holding the lead, dragging her to the floor.

Watching on from the studio, Dan exclaimed: “We’ve got a Kirkwood down, we’ve got a Kirkwood down, someone save Carol”

The studio could be heard giggling away as Carol’s legs and feet were the only things that could be seen on the screen.

As she managed to pull herself up and put her earpiece back in, she joked: “Flash is strong,” with Dan asking: “Are you alright, Carol?”

“Yes, yes, she’s a very strong girl Flash, she went back to her trainer Mel on the other side of the camera”, Carol joked.

Taking to Twitter, the official BBC Breakfast account posted a clip of Carol’s incident with her commenting: “Flash!!!” alongside laughing and love emojis.

Viewers of the show also took to Twitter to express their enjoyment over Carol’s incident, with Margaret Johnston writing: “That was wonderful (sorry Carol) really cheered us up on a Monday morning! x.”

Debs commented: “Whatever the story, Carol has always got a smile on her face, brightens the dullest day!”

“Glad you are okay, but what a great way to start Monday with a giggle,” Glenda Freeland wrote with a love heart emoji.

“Kirkwood down is one of the best lines on TV, this made me howl!” redtilamdead also commented.

Prior to the incident, Carol had been petting Flash as she presented the weather forecast when she introduced the pup: “Now, she’s a friend of the programme.

“She was actually on the programme on the 28th of April with her trainer, Mel, and she took a little bit of a nibble out of Mel’s hand when she was only 18 weeks old.

“She’s grown a bit since then, and she’s very well behaved, I must say, and just gorgeous,” she said to Flash.  

Carol had also been presenting her weather forecast from the Chelsea Flower Show, which gets underway tomorrow.

The Royal Family and celebrities will see the first glimpse of the show, where dahlias, pumpkins, and autumn colours replace spring and summer blooms.

The Royal Horticultural Society postponed this year’s show which was due to take place in May due to the pandemic.

This year’s autumn move means the event will have a different look, with blooms such as trees full of fruit and berries and autumn bulbs.

The show will run for six days, from Tuesday, September 21 to Sunday, September 26, with visitors enjoying the from 8am until 8pm.

It has been held on the grounds of Royal Hospital Chelsea every year of its 108-year history since 1913, apart from gaps during the two World Wars and in 2020 because of the pandemic.

Visitors will be asked to plant a tree in honour of the Queen as they admire an RHS flagship garden on the famous ‘triangle’ – the largest show garden site at Chelsea. 

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One.
