BBC Breakfast weather presenter Carol Kirkwood looks completely different an an unearthed throwback snap.

The TV star was compared to a "move star"when the photograph from 40 years ago first emerged six years ago.

A clip from 2016 of co-star Dan Walker showing off the picture of Carol to millions of viewers live on air has resurfaced on YouTube.

After presenting the weather forecast at the time, Dan had a surprise in store for the blonde beauty.

He revealed: "This morning, we’ve been asking people to send in their photos of them from the '80s," before a stunning image of a young Carol appeared on the screen.

An open-mouthed Dan continued: "You look like a movie star, Carol.

"There’s a lot going on in those eyes there, Carol, I like that – a lot."

The metrologist can be seen sporting pearl earrings and a red polka dot hairband in the snap.

Since the resurfacing online, BBC Breakfast fans have flooded the comments section and gushed over her youthful appearance.

One YouTube user gushed: “Oh my word. How gorgeous is Carol in that photo? Those big dreamy eyes."

Another added: "Are there any more photos of Carol in her late teens or early twenties? Absolutely gorgeous."

A third person posted: "More ‘80s pictures of the delicious Carol Kirkwood, please."

Carol first graced our screens as a weather presenter for the BBC back in 1998 and she still looks youthful as ever.

Back to 2022, Carol recently got embarrassed when she awkwardly forgot her colleague's name on air.

She had been presenting her live weather report when she confused her co-star Jon Kay with Strictly alum Dan and she looked horrified at her mistake.

The TV star had just been finishing off her segment, telling viewers all about what they could expect from the day, when she suffered the name-related blunder.

She said: "Temperatures picking up a little bit once again, especially so in the west. Dan and Sal."

Her face turned red when she realised her mistake, and she quickly tried to correct herself – but sadly it was too late as Jon and his co-star Sally Nugent had spotted the error.

She added: "Jon and Sal."

Sally told her: "You've done it now."

Carol was desperate to move on and forget the moment, saying:" Let's pretend that didn't happen. Jon and Sal."

Jon reassured her: "Don't worry, don't worry, that's fine."

He added: "It's her face, the horror. Thank you so much."
