Kirkwood quickly corrected herself, saying: “Not doggers of course!

“Lots of dog walkers and joggers around here through the course of this morning.”

She later tweeted: “That will teach me to try and say joggers and dog walkers in the same sentence!!! Sorry!”

BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker responded: “Reasons to love Carol number 472…. Recovered like a pro. I don’t think anyone even noticed.”

DJ Greg James wrote: “Yet further proof that Carol Kirkwood is a national treasure.”
