BBC Breakfast's Carol Kirkwood mortified as she makes huge blunder after presenter shake up | The Sun

BBC Breakfast star Carol Kirkwood was left mortified as she called show host Roger Johnson by the wrong name in an epic slip-up.

The resident weather presenter was left red-faced after the blunder as she quickly scrambled to save face.

Owing to the Easter break, the BBC One morning offering saw stand-in hosts covering for regulars Sally Nugent and Jon Kay as they enjoyed the Bank Holiday.

In their place was BBC Breakfast regular Nina Warhurst and BBC North West Tonight star Roger Johnson.

However, as Carol handed back to the studio following her bulletin she mistook Roger for Jon in hilarious scenes.

As she wrapped up the report, 60 year old Carol simply said: "Nina and Jon."

At first, professional Nina swiftly carried on as Roger silently chuckled to himself before she addressed the incredible mistake.

Nina, 42, said back to Carol: "Thank you so much Carol – by the way this is Roger!"

The studio plummeted into an awkward silence as Carol gasped and put her hand to her mouth in utter shock as she realised her unfortunate mix-up.

Nina and Roger began to laugh as Carol said "who did I say," appearing to forget which name she had used in her flurried state.

Roger jokingly remarked: "I've been called far worse."

Trying to resolve the situation, Carol added: "Roger, my apologies, you are so lovely!"

Joking about Jon and how he could not pull off his beard, Carol made one final plea to Roger as she said: "Well, you are just as gorgeous!"

Pregnant Nina laughed as she said Carol was just "back-peddling" before the pair moved onto the next item.
