BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood reacted after Dan Walker responded to one Twitter user’s “awkward” discovery about her engagement. Dan joked about telling Carol’s fiancé that he was actually the one getting married to his BBC Breakfast colleague.
Former BBC Breakfast colleagues Carol, 59, and Dan, 45, were left in hysterics on Twitter after they were accidentally mistaken for being husband and wife after their picture was shared online.
Carol announced she was engaged to her partner live on BBC Breakfast during Monday’s episode.
Yesterday, Carol and Dan reacted to an article that bizarrely implied they were actually a newlywed couple.
Dan, who recently left BBC Breakfast for a job at Channel 5, joked about breaking the news to Carol’s fiancé.
It all started when a Twitter user named Garry Lyon shared a hilarious screenshot of an article entitled “Yorkshire newlyweds turned away from honeymoon flight 25 minutes before departure”.
The article left the BBC pair in fits of laughter because the cover image was a picture of the two of them cuddled up together, which implied Dan and Carol as the couple in question.
Garry couldn’t resist, as he penned: “Congratulations on your wedding and sorry you were turned away from your flight @mrdanwalker @carolkirkwood,” he tweeted.
He then added: “#MisleadingImage (actual congrats to Carol on her real engagement).” (sic)
At this, Carol responded with a string of laughing emojis before Dan took to Twitter to also share the screenshot.
In view of his 759,400 followers he penned: “Well… this is awkward.
“Do you want to tell your fiancée or shall I @carolkirkwood?” he asked with three laughing emojis.
