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.

In view of her 192,000 Twitter followers, Carol divulged: "That will teach me to try and say joggers and dog walkers in the same sentence!!! Sorry! xxx."
While many of her loyal fans rushed to tell her how "funny" it was, Countdown's Rachel went on to share an admission about her Russian spouse with the BBC star.
In view of her own 666,000 followers, Rachel tweeted: "You’ve helped teach @PashaKovalev a new word for the day."
After the Channel 4 star posted, one fan quickly responded with: "Ah he’s playing that card is he Rachel."
