Carol Kirkwood made it crystal clear she does not want to be seen as a sex symbol, nor does she consider herself famous. The 56-year-old, who reports the weather forecast on BBC Breakfast, insisted she has no interest in being idolised by men or women for her looks. Of being labelled a “sex symbol”, the meteorologist said: “Well, that doesn’t even come on my radar. “I’m just grateful to be on TV for being good at what I do, not because I’m a particular age or gender.”

Also, she does not consider herself famous, although she did admit to being recognised when out in public.

“I get recognised in the street a lot, particularly after Strictly, but I’m certainly not famous,” she wrote in the Times.

Carol competed on series  13of Strictly Come Dancing with professional dancer Pasha Kovalev, 39, in 2015.

In her column for the publication, the radio reporter discussed her life outside of the BBC, though she admitted to hardly having a social life.

“I don’t have much of a social life during the week, perhaps because I’m in bed by nine most nights.”

Instead, the presenter makes time to see friends in the afternoon, as she is usually finished with work around midday.

She explained: “My working day is usually finished by midday, so I might meet a friend for lunch.”

The TV veteran is a fan of salads with prawn or chicken, shellfish and burgers, as well as sticky toffee pudding.

Carol, who has worked for BBC Breakfast since 1998, has a huge following on social media.

She previously sparked concern among her 149,000 Twitter followers when she delivered a weather announcement on her account.

Highlighting a “weather bomb” last week, Carol cautioned her fans about blustery winds hitting the UK.

She wrote: “This highlights how windy it will be tomorrow. Pressure drops by 24mb in 24 hours in a ‘weather bomb’ or ‘explosive cyclogenesis’ event.

“The low pressure coming our way tonight/tomorrow is dropping 40mb in 24 hours!”

The BBC favourite’s statement startled some of her fans, with one tweeting: “Keep safe, Carol,”

Meanwhile another asked: “Wow Carol! Will it be worse than last night in London? The wind was howling!”

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays on BBC One at 6am.
