BBC Breakfast’s Carol Kirkwood snaps at Dan Walker for ‘large slice’ comment

BBC Breakfast's weatherwoman Carol Kirkwood was less than impressed at Dan Walker's "large slice" comment on today's show (June 9).

The host made a quip on Wednesday's programme when he and colleague Louise Minchin introduced the weather forecast segment.

He said: "I promise you we would have a 'large slice of Carol' looking ahead for the next few days to the weather, and we can do that now. Good morning Carol!"

Carol, feeling taken aback, replied: "Good morning both of you, I'm not sure about 'large slice'. Anyway."

She the moved on to give a weekend weather forecast, which could see a high of 29C on Sunday (June 13) in the southeast region of England.

Signing off the segment, Dan said: "A perfectly-sized slice there Carol, thank you very much!"

The pair laughed off in the studio and Carol added: "Well recovered, Dan."

Some viewers commented on Dan's light-hearted jibe and called him "cheeky".

It comes after Louise announced that she is to leave the news programme after appearing as a regular anchor since 2001.

The 52-year-old held back her tears and said: "I'm just going to take a deep breath for this.

"So everybody, something I just wanted to tell you about.

"It will be this year 20 years since I first presented this programme and since then I've felt like part of a huge enormous BBC Breakfast family, which includes everyone who works here.

"Everyone on the team and everyone of you who watches the programme. I've loved being part of it but. There is a but.

"I have decided that it is time that I stop setting my alarm for 3:40 in the morning and I am going to be leaving the programme."

Co-host Dan took to Instagram and shared a series of photos of him and Louise through the years of their TV stint.

He wrote: "This feels like a break-up, what am I going to do without Louise?"
