BBC Breakfast Jon Kay emotional as he wants to hug Carol Kirkwood amid big news

BBC Breakfast host Jon Kay couldn't rein in his emotion on the red sofa as he admitted he just wanted to "hug" weather presenter Carol Kirkwood.

Sitting alongside his co-star Sally Nugent, Jon was fighting to contain himself as he discussed the Chelsea Flower Show with the gang.

Yesterday (May 23), Carol announced live on the programme that she is now engaged to her fiancé after he proposed while the couple were enjoying a picnic on holiday together.

And on Tuesday's show (May 24), Jon and Sally were busy discussing the flower show when Carol's announcement cropped back up.

Jon reflected: "Doesn't it make you just think, 'I need to sort out my garden'?" as Sally agreed: "Yes, a little bit!"

Jon then added: "I wish I had a garden like that."

"It sort of makes me think, 'I wish I'd been there yesterday to see all those beautiful flowers and amazing people'," Sally then said, referencing the likes of Dame Judi Dench and Ainsley Harriott who were at the event.

Which is when Jon gushed: "I wish I'd been there yesterday just to give Carol a hug, to be honest!"

The segment then cut to Carol's weather report, as Jon asked: "How was your day?"

Slightly taken aback by the attention, Carol said: "My day was… lovely. Thank you, Jon, it was really nice. And it was so special being at the Chelsea Flower Show as well."

But though Carol tried to steer the conversation towards the weather, Jon couldn't resist ribbing her: "Any more bombshells this morning?"

Giggling, Carol said: "No, no more bombshells this morning – just the weather!"
