Carol Kirkwood, who regularly delivers the weather forecast on BBC Breakfast, shared concerns over her garden plants and admitted she was unsure of what to do next. The meteorologist took to Twitter and opened up about her dilemma.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, the 58-year-old admitted her plants were growing like “triffids” – a highly venomous carnivorous plant often found in fictional books and films.
In view of her 203,000 followers, Carol explained that no rain was expected for the rest of the week, which spelled disaster for her.
She penned: “No significant rain in the forecast for the rest of this week. My poor plants are growing like the triffids in my kitchen… don’t want to put them out due to the frost (tempting as it is in the Spring sunshine!) @BBCBreakfast.”
Fans were quick to respond to the post, as people shared their issues.
Delivering today’s forecast, Carol explained: “It is a cold start. There’s a widespread frost, some of us have higher temperatures than others at the moment.
“In Aberdeenshire, it’s -3C, Birmingham -1C so if you’re just heading out it is a nippy start to the day.
“But most of us will have sunshine today and it is also going to be mostly dry.”
She continued: “The highest temperatures today will be about 16C, maybe 18C out towards the west.
