Carol Kirkwood and her recent update on her divorce
BBC Breakfast weather girl Carol Kirkwood recently opened about herself post-op little from her husband Jimmy Kirkwood. She stated that she had found herself after her divorce.
Usually, in a relationship sometimes we bury ourselves so much that we tend to get lost. When the relationship ends for any reason, a person starts looking out for this ‘lost inside’ and gets a different feeling on the rediscovery of oneself, this is what Carol meant. Carol admitted that she is now more fearless and unafraid to do things.
She told Radio Times:
“I’m braver now.”
Though relations are good to have, they do weaken an individual in many ways. Carol further elaborated :
“I’ve flown with the Red Arrows, jumped out of planes with the Red Devils. When I was younger I would never have done that because I’d have thought, ‘Too dangerous!’”
She is also eager to leave her comfort zone and have new experiences. Carol said:
“Now I think, ‘Oh, you’ve got to live your life! I found myself when I got divorced. I started to do things and to think, ‘I’m not going to say no, I’m going to say yes!’”
She decided to participate in the Strictly Come Dancing show. She took part and competed in it 3 years ago and managed to be on the show until week seven. That was the ‘most amazing experience for her’, she had said.

Carol never wanted to be a meteorologist. It just happened to her. She was doing her commerce studies at the Edinburgh University and had joined BBC as a secretary to gain some experience.

With time, the clarity of her presentation and speech improved. She took a break post marriage and later rejoined as a meteorologist.
BBC presenter realized that there is more pressure to look good on TV.
She has to get up at 2.45 am and tries to stay healthy. She revealed:
“I like it if my hair is neat and my make-up is OK and I’m not having a fat day. When you just feel bleurgh. I didn’t get this figure eating salad. But I go to the gym and I run. I try to be healthy.
“When I put on weight, it’s annoying, but I try to get it off. Perhaps I’m under a little bit more pressure because I’m on the telly.”
