However, Sally and Jon weren’t too fussed about the weather – they were more interested in the ring on Carol’s finger!

“I’m a little bit concerned about you this morning, I don’t know how you’re managing to stand up with that giant rock on your left hand,” Sally said, noticing the ring.

“Oh that one? Thanks, yeah it is rather nice, I got engaged,” Carol laughed.

Sally then went on to push Carol for some details about the exciting news.

“Can we confirm to the nation what’s happened?” Sally asked the weather presenter.

“I think you just have Sal! Yes I got engaged, we got engaged when we were on holiday so it’s lovely news and we’re both thrilled,” Carol said.

Jon then asked Carol how it happened, asking if it had been a “formal one knee thing”.

“Yes, it was,” Carol replied. “We went out for a picnic, I had absolutely no idea.

“The weather was glorious, we were sitting chatting, and then, my other half was a wee bit nervous for some reason, which I didn’t know.”

“It was lovely, it was very romantic,” she added. “That’s just gorgeous, isn’t it,” Jon said.

“You’re making me really embarrassed now,” Carol laughed.
