Carol Kirkwood caused a flurry of gasps from her BBC Breakfast co-stars Dan Walker, Louise Minchin and Louise Minchin after she posted a photo of herself in the 1980s. The throwback snap showed the weather favorite looking completely different.
BBC Breakfast stars Dan Walker and Louise Minchin were gobsmacked when Carol Kirkwood showed them a photo of herself in the 1980s.
As Dan, 41, asked viewers to send in images of themselves in the ’80s, a snap of Carol popped up on the screen behind him.
Addressing the weather presenter, Dan exclaimed: “You look like a movie star, Carol. Look at that [picture].”
“You look amazing,” 50-year-old Louise enthused. “Look at those sparkling eyes, you look fabulous!”
Appearing a little embarrassed, Carol said: “Check out the wallpaper [and those] big chops, look at those big chops.”
In the throwback photo, which was shared on the show in 2016, Carol donned a red sequinned hairband and diamond earrings.
What’s more, her brunette tresses were tied back to allow her pretty facial features to take centre stage.
She also had a generous coating of make-up, consisting of mascara, bold eyeliner and a slick of pink lipgloss.
The TV star still opts for pink lippy today, but her once raven mane has turned silver and she is rarely seen wearing hair accessories.
However, she recently donned the infamous Children In Need Pudsey ears to launch the 2018 Do Your Thing campaign for the BBC charity.
The 56-year-old TV personality joined Strictly Come Dancing star Stacey Dooley and Mollie King to support the fundraiser, which asks people across the UK to ‘Do Your Thing’ to help change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
Speaking about the cause, Carol said: “I hope as many people as possible find the time to join in Doing THEIR Thing, to raise even more money than last year.”
To mark the campaign launch, Carol visited The Yard in Edinburgh, an organisation benefiting from BBC Children in Need funding, to see how the public’s donations are making a difference to disadvantaged children and young people in Scotland.
The star-studded campaign is also supported by Tess Daly, Rochelle Humes, Alex Jones, Ore Oduba and Matt Baker.
Strictly Come Dancing host Tess, 49, said she is “delighted” to be involved in the campaign and urged everyone to show their support in 2018.
