Carol Kirkwood, 60, has announced she is engaged to her boyfriend Steve. The BBC Breakfast presenter confirmed she was dating last June but little is known about her other half.
The star gave BBC Breakfast viewers a nice surprise this morning when she announced the engagement live on-air.
She was presenting live from the Chelsea Flower Show while sporting a new ring on her left hand.
It prompted colleagues Sally Nugent and Jon Kay to probe the weather star, at which point Carol announced the news.
However, little is known at this time about Carol’s fiancé.

During promotion for her debut romantic novel last year, Carol said of her partner: “He’s only a secret boyfriend because I never talk about him.
“I always feel that through my job, I put myself in the public eye and am very happy, but my partner and my family and my friends haven’t, so I’m hugely respectful of their privacy.
“I just don’t talk about them, other than to say that my partner is drop-dead gorgeous, he’s funny, he makes me very happy.”
Following her divorce from Jimmy, her closest companion was pet cat Donald, who the two adopted together in 2000.
