'BBC Breakfast' Weather Presenter Carol Kirkwood Claims She Is Bombarded With Explicit Letters From Male Fans

Carol Kirkwood has revealed that presenting the weather has made her an unlikely sex symbol, claiming she’s often bombarded with explicit letters from male admirers.


Carol has presented the weather on ‘BBC Breakfast’ for over 15 years, during which time she’s apparently garnered quite a male following, who aren’t shy about sending her a barrage of x-rated letters .

However, it sounds as if she’s so used to it now that it doesn’t even bother her, telling The Mirror: “I’ve had so many of them over the years I’m almost immune to it. It all comes into the office and goes to the secretary.”

“My boyfriend is used to it - he thinks it’s funny.”

However, she went on to confess that it didn’t stop at just letters, and now receives regular explicit photos on Twitter.

She added: “I get a lot on social media. They’ve all been blocked."

Carol was the subject of a particularly saucy chat during a live segment on ‘BBC Breakfast’ last October, when presenter Bill Turnbull made a comment about how her “tightly-packed Isobars” had received a lot of attention from viewers.

Ever the professional, Carol playfully responded: “They are quite tightly packed, yes. There's a nice big squeeze going on”.
