Carol Kirkwood, 58, shared with her 194,800 followers that her shoes had begun to squeak as if she were being followed by “a horde of mice” while going about her day on BBC Breakfast. The weather presenter’s fans found the sartorial statement hysterical as they questioned whether she had “paid” for the footwear.

A very silly question

Carol typed: “This is a very silly question… but do your trainers squeak?!!!

“I sound like I have a horde of mice following me round. Any tips?!!!”

The star followed her lighthearted tweet with a series of mouse emojis.

One fan commented: “Always remember my mom saying … Squeaky Shoes meant you’ve not paid for them.”

Carol replied: “My dad used to say that too! X.”

Another said: “Never until recently! I bought a pair of Slazengers from Sport Direct last month, and now, just walking round the kitchen sounds like going 5 – 0 up, indoors, against Martina Navratilova!”

The weather expert responded: “That made me LOL.”(sic)

Carol’s Twitter feed is usually focused on the climate, and yesterday she took followers behind the scenes as she filmed for BBC Breakfast at Hever Castle.

The 58-year-old typed: “Chilly but lovely start to the day @hevercastle.

“Today’s forecast is one of sunshine and showers, some of the showers merging to give longer spells of rain in N Ire, Wales, SW Eng and the Channel Islands. 

“Pretty breezy in the south through the day @BBCBreakfast.”

Carol joined the BBC back in April 1998 as a weather presenter and is now the chief weather forecaster on BBC Breakfast.

The esteemed forecaster has won the TRIC Award for best TV Weather Presenter five times.

After divorcing her husband Jimmy Kirkwood back in 2008, she now lives alone in Maidenhead.

Carol revealed to Radio Times that since being single, she had found herself.

She explained: “I found myself when I got divorced. I started to do things and to think, ‘I’m not going to say no, I’m going to say yes!

“I’m braver now. I’ve flown with the Red Arrows, jumped out of planes with the Red Devils.” 

Five years ago, the Scotland native also appeared on Strictly Come Dancing alongside Pasha Kovalev.

On her time during the dance competition, Carol previously declared she was “rubbish”.

She told guests at Countryfile Live: “I was rubbish. You know, I still don’t know which is my left leg.”

BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
