Carol Kirkwood, 59, makes regular appearances on BBC Breakfast to present the latest weather report and she speaks with her co-stars in the studio from wherever she is in the country. During Friday’s instalment of the BBC News programme, the meteorologist was delivering the weather-related news to viewers from a sunflower farm in Bishops Stortford. However, as Naga Munchetty, 46, handed the reins over to her colleague on-location in the English countryside, she joked the forecaster is “always hiding” from her and co-host, Charlie Stayt, 59.

Speaking to the forecaster for the first time in the programme, Naga told viewers: “It’s time to talk to Carol.

“Who is hiding,” she joked, making reference to the forecaster standing in-between a whole array of sunflowers.

“Which is often the case when we’re on this morning at the end of the week,” the host continued, before stating this time her co-star was “hiding amongst something beautiful”.

Laughing at the broadcaster’s quip, the meteorologist replied: “Absolutely right Naga and Charlie,” before carrying on with the duties of her role.

Explaining where she was, the forecaster said: “I’m at Cammas Hall Farm and you can see lots and lots of sunflowers all around me.”

“But then if we take an aerial shot, you can see just how many there are. There are approximately 100,000 sunflowers in bloom right now,” she explained.

Carol added: “And wow, they look spectacular and some other farms have said they have been flowering quite late.

“I’m struggling through them at the moment because of the lack of warmer weather,” she continued before discussing the latest and upcoming weather conditions.

The forecaster interacted with Naga and Charlie again throughout the show and they passed comment at Carol’s surroundings on several occasions.

At one point, Naga said to her co-star: “Carol is like tiptoeing in the sunflowers and I haven’t got that song wrong.”

Again, laughing off the comment, the forecaster told her co-star she wasn’t wrong with the reference to pop culture she had made.

Taking to her official Twitter account on Friday morning, the weather presenter gave her 207,700 followers a glance at the location she was presenting from.

She shared multiple images of different viewpoints from the field but she managed to capture the sunrise on the farm.

Sharing a picture of some sunflowers against the backdrop of the sunrise, she wrote: “It is 0715 and all the sunflower heads are pointing east.

“They follow the sun and by the end of the day will be pointing west,” the presenter explained before posting a picture of herself with the sunflowers.

Attending the location with her cameraman, Andy Smith, the weather presenter added: “Andy, this is not what I meant.

“You were supposed to put me in soft focus, not the sunflowers!” she continued, followed by a string of laughing face emojis.

Several of her followers replied to the pictures, with one writing: “Nothing wrong with this picture that I can see.”

Another posted: “Reminds me of growing with my children when they were younger – they never got tired of the way the flower heads tracked the sun, even on a dull day!”

A third fan of the forecaster remarked: “You like sunflowers, remember two years ago you were in a field of sunflowers.”

“Good morning. You may be in a field of sunflowers Sunflower but there are none as bright and cheery as you,” a fourth shared.

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One.
