Carol Kirkwood took to Twitter this morning to congratulate Sally Nugent for winning a Royal Television Society Journalism Award. The 58-year-old weather presenter told her pal that she looked “glam” in her social media post, after BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker called her out for wearing slippers.

Sally shared her delight on the micro-blogging site last night after receiving the Scoop of the Year accolade, for her Free School Meals report on BBC Breakfast.

The newsreader posted a picture of herself sitting on the stairs at home, with a glass of bubbly in hand.

She could be seen in an all-black ensemble with a pair of fluffy slippers on her feet.

The 49-year-old wore her long tresses loose and enhanced her natural good looks with make-up in pink tones.

“⁩Thrilled to win ⁦@RTS_media Scoop of the Year for our work on Free School Meals,” Sally informed her 121,000 followers.

“Thank you to driving force ⁦@ClaireRyanSport, editor ⁦@BBCFrediani and everyone @BBCBreakfast.

“And thank you ⁦@MarcusRashford for trusting us to tell your story,” she added.

Many took to the comments section of her post to congratulate the TV star including some of her BBC colleagues.

“Forget that… what about those slippers!!! #SlippersOfTheYear,” wrote Dan drawing attention to her footwear.

“Sal you even look glam in ur slippers!” Carol has since added, defending her laid back look.

“Fab piccie and huge congratulations to all,”(sic) she added.

Even Piers Morgan, who works on rival show Good Morning Britain, addressed the win.

“Congrats Sally, great scoop,” he wrote online.

“So pleased for you and the trusted team. Top work rightly recognised and rewarded,” fellow TV star Clare Balding remarked.

“Congratulations – on one of the most important stories of the year. Enjoy the celebrations even if they are on your stairs in your slippers!” another user added.

Earlier in the evening, Dan sent his congratulations to Sally and the BBC Breakfast team who had worked on the scoop.

Alongside a screenshot of her interview and a tweet from Royal Television Society announcing the news, Dan wrote: “Brilliant news.

“Well played @BBCBreakfast & particularly @sallynugent, producer @ClaireRyanSport and our boss @BBCFrediani for driving it through #RTSAwards.”

On Instagram he’s said that it was the first time a breakfast show had won the award.

In their tweet, the RTS said the programme showed “great contact building, perseverance, diplomacy and a clear eye for a story”.
