BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood was "upstaged" on live television yesterday morning when a dog relieved itself during a broadcast.
The meteorologist was broadcasting from West Wittering beach, in West Sussex, when a dog called Connie, who belongs to a BBC producer, crept into shot.
BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin had spotted the dog in the background, and said: "Oh Carol, don't look behind you!" Co-host Charlie Stayt added: "Don't turn round!"
Spotting the dog as it sauntered off, Kirkwood said: "Upstaged by a dog, it's the story of my life."
