BBC Breakfast star Carol Kirkwood gave fans a tiny glimpse into her relationship with police officer Steve Randall ahead of their wedding. Speaking to Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2, she discussed how she and Steve 'bounce ideas around'.

The weather presenter, 61, told the radio host: "I write all over the place. Most of my ideas come when I'm out walking and I'm out with my other half, Steve. We'll bounce ideas around.

She added: "Sometimes he'll come up with something and I'll think, 'That's really good but it wouldn't work with this character…' But then it's sparked something else so I get my phone out and I just dictate into my phone or I'll dictate into my laptop. Saves all the writing."

Carol keeps her love life out of the spotlight and recently revealed the identity of her mystery man in March following their engagement in 2022. She has been in a relationship with the police officer, 47, since 2021 and is soon set to say "I do".

Last month, the star admitted she didn't expect to get into a relationship when she first met Steve. The two were friends before they decided to explore a romantic connection, with the presenter revealing "We knew each other quite well before we started dating."

“That was nice because it just kind of happened,” Carol toldClosermagazine. “Who'd have thought that at this ripe old age, I'd be getting married again? I certainly didn't.”

Carol announced her shock engagement while presenting from the Chelsea Flower Show in May 2022. It also seems the happy couple are in no rush to walk down the aisle. The duo live together in her £2million home in a gated community in Berkshire.

She was previously married to hockey player Jimmy Kirkwood but the couple divorced in 2008, while Steve was previously married to his now ex-wife Nichola Randall but they split in 2017 after 12 years of marriage.

As well as presenting the weather, Carol is also an accomplished novelist and her forthcoming third book begins with her characters preparing for an imminent wedding.

Asked by Best Magazine if this was a nod to her own impending nuptials, Carol laughed off the suggestion. She said: “Not just yet! We know we are definitely going to get married – we just haven’t sorted out the details yet. We’re just enjoying being engaged to be honest.”
