Carol Kirkwood on confiding in ‘loyal’ Louise Minchin about ‘issues’ behind-the-scenes

Carol Kirkwood, 58, gushed over her BBC Breakfast co-star Louise Minchin, 53, after the pair revealed they confide in each other if either of them are having problems. During a recent interview on Louise and triathlete Annie Emmerson’s Her Spirit podcast, the forecaster admitted she has often turned her pal when she’s been in need of advice.

“We’ve been friends for donkeys years!” Carol beamed at Louise.

“I know if I have an issue, I can always phone you and I have done!”

Louise smiled back: “We do chat, don’t we,” as Carol continued, thanking her for being such a loyal friend.

“‘What can I do about this, I’m really cornered about something…'” she gave some examples of the times she’s gone to her colleague for help.

“And you’re such a good, honest friend that you will give me good, solid advice and I really do appreciate that!”

Turning to Annie, Carol quickly added: “And Annie, you’re going to be on my list now too!”

She replied ecstatically: “Good! I want to be on your list Carol!”

It comes after she asked the forecaster whether she ever gets grumpy.

“We watch you on TV; I’ve watched you for years, and you’re just such joy! Does that come from having lots of brothers and sisters?” she pondered.

The presenter thanked her for her kind words as she explained she was right.

“Yes, I think it did because we were taught to share and appreciate what we have and I still very much feel like that,” Carol nodded in agreement.

“But you asked if I’m ever grumpy… yes! 2:45am, when that alarm goes off – slam! Snooze!” she laughed.
