BBC Breakfast's resident weather expert Carol Kirkwood often presents the weather from the studio, but this week she left the studio to appear from a special location.

That's because the weather presenter travelled to West London to greet viewers live from the Wimbledon tennis tournament on Monday (June 27).

The iconic Wimbledon tennis championships is set to run from Monday until Sunday July 10 – and it will see the likes of Andy Murray and Emma Raducanu take to the court.

It was fitting, then, for the BBC to send Carol Kirkwood and her colleague, sports presenter John Watson, to provide the latest and greatest coverage from the competition.

Sally revealed Carol's Wimbledon gig from the studio – hailing it an "important day" for their weather and sports teams.

She said: "It's an important day today for our sport and weather teams," to which Sally's co-host Jon Kay agreed: "It is."

Sally continued: "Out and about in a certain corner of south-west London. Morning, Carol!"

A beaming Carol appeared on our screen, standing in front of a gorgeous floral display to honour the biggest tennis championship on the planet.

Carol replied: "Good morning Sal and Jon, good morning to you, too! It is lovely here this morning at Wimbledon. Look at that behind me."

The presenter gestured to the giant Wimbledon display as she continued: "Wimbledon 2022. It is back and what a year as well, 100 years of Centre Court."

It is not the first time she's given live forecasts from Wimbledon, either.
