BBC Breakfast’s Carol Kirkwood messes up in huge name blunder live on air

Forgetting your colleague’s name isn’t the end of the world, but when you do it on live television, the level of embarrassment is obviously heightened.

For weather lady Carol Kirkwood this seemed to be the case on the latest episode of BBC Breakfast after she made an obvious blunder by calling presenter Ben Thompson the wrong name.

Though Ben and his co-host Naga Munchetty appeared on the breakfast show for the first time this week, Carol,58, had previously presented the weather alongside hosts Louise Minchin and Dan Walker.

Due to the change of presenters, Carol, like anybody would, got rather muddled up with names.

On Thursday morning, after she had finished presenting the weather, Carol realised she had made a huge mistake with names and called Ben, Dan.

The weather lady said: "Perhaps on Sunday there will be a bit more cloud around, but again that is opent to question. Dan and Naga."

Quickly realising she had made the error, Carol screeched "Ben!"

She added: "I could of got away with that one."
