“We got engaged when we were on holiday. So it’s lovely news and we’re both thrilled. Thank you!”
“We’re all so chuffed for you, Carol, on behalf of everyone here and everyone at home too,” Jon added.
The BBC Breakfast studio then erupted in applause while Carol simply smiled at the camera and pointed out that the couple were yet to make plans for their nuptials.
“Are you looking for a spot for the marquee while you’re at Chelsea?” Jon enquired.
Carol said: “I’m taking note of all the flowers Jon. No, no plans afoot yet.”
“Congratulations, we love you both,” Sally said before confirming she was already in the know.
