“I love the variety, I love the weather, I love the outside broadcasts and the fact that we get to meet everyone when you’re out and about.

“It’s a brilliant job and I’m so lucky. Why would I want to do anything else?”

“I’m very happy doing this,” the meteorologist told The Sun.

Carol will be joined by the first Breakfast Time weather presenter Francis Wilson.

Richard Frediani, Editor of BBC Breakfast commented: “Life begins at 40… and what a 40 years it has been. BBC Breakfast is the UK’s number one choice every morning, so we want to celebrate this occasion in the best way possible, bringing back presenters, taking a look at the archives, and marking history, showing some of our favourite TV moments from the very first show.

“We have a great team, on and off the camera, and I’m delighted to be at the helm for this special birthday. I hope viewers will enjoy the trip down memory lane as much as we have enjoyed making it while we prepare for an exciting 2023 with big plans for the year ahead.”
