The pair staged somewhat of a love-in during Wednesday’s (13 April) show, after host Dan Walker put fans’ concerns to them.
As business journalist Steph gave the latest news on the Budget, Dan commented: “Some people watching think that you and Carol have fallen out.”
“Oh no!” Steph commented.
Dan continued: “So we thought why don’t you hand over to Carol with the weather and make sure that it’s all very friendly and lovely.”
Throwing to Carol, who presents the weather from a studio in London, while the rest of the team are in Manchester, Steph said: “Carol, gorgeous one. You know I love you. I have to say, thank you for all the biscuit crumbs that were all over the set that I had to sweep up before I started.”
Dan couldn’t contain his laughter, as Steph turned to him and said: “You could never be any good at the weather like Carol.”
Returning to address Carol, Steph continued: “So go for it, kid!”
Carol responded: “What a fabulous introduction! I think you should do it everyday actually, Steph.”
Steph’s comment about the biscuit crumbs was in relation to Carol’s penchant for the sweet snack (we’ve got her down as a mid-morning bourbon type of gal), and she previously made a quip about it when she presented a segment with a pack of pigs nibbling at her wellies.
“This reminds me of when you’ve got a packet of biscuits in your pocket and you see Carol Kirkwood,” she joked last month.
