BBC Breakfast weather presenter Carol Kirkwood feared she’d be “sacked” for disagreeing with her boss live on air.

The popular host, featured on the weekday series, made the tongue-in-cheek quip following a discussion about whether there can be different types of weather every day.

BBC One show anchor Naga Munchetty said: “Our output producer said today that there can be no weather and I don’t think it’s true. I think there is always weather.

“And he said there is a phenomenon where there is no weather.”

Carol, 58, was clearly in disagreement.

She replied: “There’s always weather. There’s always going to be something; it’s going to be dry, it’s going to be wet, it’s going to be sunny.

“So, I don’t think he’s right.”

Carol continued with the forecast but stopped to surmise: “I’ll probably be sacked for that one.”

Last summer, the former Strictly Come Dancing star also faced the wrath of her bosses as she made a hilarious slip up.

The seasoned weather presenter had been excitedly gushing over the warm weather when she jumbled her words.

Carol had been trying to describe seeing lots of “dog walkers and joggers” at Greenwich Park during the BBC Breakfast broadcast when she exclaimed: “We’ve seen lots of doggers”.

Dogging is a British slang term for having sex in public in full view of others – often reported as taking place in car parks and woodlands.

And she was quick to realise her mistake, saying: “Not doggers of course, lots of dog walkers and joggers around here through the course of this morning.”

She then quickly cut to the forecast for the rest of the week.

The presenter then tweeted shortly after, writing: “That will teach me to try and say joggers and dog walkers in the same sentence!!! Sorry!”

The clip has quickly attracted attention online – with many viewers left in hysterics over the slip of the tongue.

Yet this week it was BBC stalwart Naga who was at the centre of action as BBC bosses called in the police over complaints about her conduct which had turned threatening.

The morning TV star, 46, and co-presenter Charlie Stayt were at the centre of an impartiality row after Charlie made fun of the size of a national banner draped in the corner of an office behind Housing Minister Robert Jenrick, and Naga couldn’t stop giggling at it.
