Countdown star Rachel Riley, 34, confessed that her other half, Pasha Kovalev, 40, was unaware of the term "dogging" before BBC Breakfast's weather presenter Carol Kirkwood, 58, accidentally said "doggers" during her morning forecast this week. The BBC favourite has since opened up about her error and apologised on social media.

In her first instalment of the week, Carol was heard saying on BBC Breakfast: "Good morning everybody. Greenwich Park is one of the oldest and closed of the royal parks and look at it! Fabulous!"

"The sun is beating down, we've seen lots of doggers," she said, before realising her mistake.

She quickly corrected herself: "Not doggers of course! Lots of dog walkers and joggers around here, through the course of this morning."

Soon after amusing BBC viewers and causing a stir on social media, Carol took the opportunity to apologise for her mistake.
