BBC News: Carol Kirkwood for new role on BBC Breakfast reading out newspapers? | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Today’s BBC Breakfast was presented by Louise Minchin and Dan Walker, with the pair analysing the front pages of the newspapers.

They were joined by Steph McGovern and Sally Nugent to look at what was making headlines but Louise was keen to get Carol Kirkwood involved too.

Following the weather, Louise made it clear she wanted Carol to be more involved with the show although she admitted she was probably “too busy”.

She told viewers: “Thank you very much Carol, 20 past seven here and very good morning. We’re going to look at the papers this morning.”

Dan added: “Yeah we’ve got Steph and Sal and here with us to have a little look at the insides, let’s take a look…”

“I think we should have a new thing soon and get Carol involved as well with the papers,” Louise chipped in making a plea to bosses.

“You know, just throwing it out there.”

Smiling Dan yelled: “Carol! Come back and pick a story Carol!”

“She’s probably got enough to do,” Louise admitted. “But you know, she’s always busy.”

Could tomorrow morning’s show see Carol help out with the newspapers segment?

Earlier on in the show, when looking at the inside pages of the newspapers, the team discussed the most favoured alcoholic tipple.

Dan noted: “Wine has overtaken beer as our favourite alcoholic tipple.”

“Not surprised in my house,” Louise exclaimed as Dan laughed: “Early revelation there.”

The team then proceeded to guess which two types of wine were the most preferred.

“It’s got to be Sauvignon Blanc,” Louise guessed, which was correct. “And Chardonnay,” she added trying to work out the second.

“Pinot Grigio,” Steph guessed, which was right. “I’s the only one I can think of… I haven’t drank for months now.”

But Sally assured her: “Don’t worry we’re doing it for you!”

Last week on BBC Breakfast, weather presenter Matt Taylor took a cheeky swipe at host Naga Munchetty.

Matt teased Naga after she didn’t believe one of his weather reports, asking: “Have you learnt nothing yet?”

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays on BBC One at 6am.
