BBC Breakfast’s Carol Kirkwood was pulled to the ground by a guide dog gone rogue live on today’s programme.
The 59-year-old weather presenter had just given the forecast from Chelsea when the golden Labrador named Flash tugged at the lead she was holding and dragged her to the floor.
To make matters even funnier, the hilarious blunder came just moments after Carol had declared that Flash was ‘very well behaved’.
‘We’ve got a Kirkwood down!’ exclaimed Strictly Come Dancing star Dan Walker as he sat in the comfort of the BBC studio. ‘We’ve got a Kirkwood down! Someone save Carol!’
‘Flash is strong!’ laughed Carol as she got back onto her knees and put her earpiece back in.
‘Are you alright Carol?’ asked Dan, to no response.
‘We’re just checking that you’re okay,’ Sally Nugent added. ‘Are you alright?’
‘Yes!’ Carol replied. ‘Yes, she’s a very strong girl, Flash.’
Prior to the incident, Carol had been stroking Flash as she muddled through the weather forecast.
Introducing the pup, she said: ‘Now, she’s a friend of the programme. She was actually on the programme on the 28th April with her trainer, Mel, and she took a little bit of a nibble out of Mel’s hand when she was only 18 weeks old.
‘She’s grown a bit since then and she’s very well behaved I must say as well, and just gorgeous.’
Viewers were in stitches by the scenes at home, with one writing: ‘That was wonderful (sorry Carol). Really cheered us up on a Monday morning!’
Echoing a similar sentiment, another added: ‘This was so funny.’
They do say never work with animals… now we know why!
BBC Breakfast airs daily from 6am on BBC One.
