Hold onto your hats, folks! Carol Kirkwood and Steve Randall are officially hitched! The lovebirds tied the knot on a cozy Wednesday, December 20, in Buckinghamshire, surrounded by the warmth of family and friends. Cue the confetti!
Now, let’s rewind and dive into their love saga. Picture this – from pals to putting a ring on it and now rocking those wedding bands, their journey is straight out of a romantic comedy. Grab your popcorn!
Before Steve waltzed into her life, Carol had been in the marriage game before with former field hockey and cricket player Jimmy Kirkwood. After a solid 18 years of love and togetherness, they decided to call it quits. Meanwhile, Steve, the police officer with his own story, had already parted ways with his former flame back in 2017.
Now, post-breakups, Carol wasn’t on the lookout for love. But enter Steve, making a grand entrance into her life when she was already riding the happiness wave solo. “I didn’t need a man in my life – but I want him in my life – and that’s the difference,” Carol spilled the love beans at Good Housekeeping Live. Aww, pass the tissues!
Carol Kirkwood’s Career Journey
Carol Kirkwood began her career with the BBC in London, joining the secretarial reserve after graduation. She worked her way up through various internal roles and eventually presented short slots on BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio 2, as well as BBC Radio 4.
After marrying Jimmy Kirkwood, she left the BBC and ventured into recruitment and later worked as a training consultant for a management consultancy sited in Cheshire.
In 1992, Kirkwood spent time on the now-defunct cable TV channel, Windsor TV (later called Wire TV), alongside Sacha Baron Cohen. She rejoined the BBC in 1993 as a freelance presenter at the Elstree Studios training department.
During this time, she also presented a bi-monthly program, Talking Issues, for HTV West. In 1996, Kirkwood joined the new UK operation of The Weather Channel. After its closure, she underwent training with the Met Office under BBC guidance and joined BBC News in April in the year 1998 as a weather presenter.
Kirkwood has appeared regularly on various BBC Weather programs on both radio and television, including BBC News, BBC World News, BBC News at Six, and live forecasts for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.
She is the primary weather presenter on BBC Breakfast. Although the program moved to MediaCityUK in Salford in 2012, Kirkwood continued to present the weather on Breakfast via video link from London.
In addition to her weather presenting role, Kirkwood presented The Weather Show on BBC and is a regular contributor and reporter for The One Show. She co-presented the BBC One series The Great British Weather in 2011 and presented the weather on BBC Radio 2’s The Chris Evans Breakfast Show.
Carol Kirkwood has made appearances as a guest on CBBC’s show Hacker Time, BBC One panel show Would I Lie to You? in the year 2014, and had a cameo appearance on Hollyoaks in October 2018.
Who is Carol Kirkwood’s Partner?
Carol Kirkwood, born in (May 29) ’62, is this Scottish weather presenter for the BBC, mostly doing the weather on BBC Breakfast. She learned all about weather stuff from the Met Office, so when you want to know if you need an umbrella or shades, she’s your gal.
Back in 2015, she took a break from clouds and sunshine to show off her dance moves on Strictly Come Dancing, landing in 10th place. But it’s not all about twirls and spins; she used to be hitched to Jimmy Kirkwood until they called it quits in 2008.
Now, jump to May 23, 2022, during a live chit-chat from the Chelsea Flower Show on BBC Breakfast, and guess what? She spills the tea about getting engaged to Steve Randall. Drumroll, please! They made it official on December 27, 2023, getting hitched in Buckinghamshire. Cheers to Carol and her new weatherman!
The Proposal: Love is in the Air!
After a solid year of lovey-dovey adventures, Carol finally spilled the tea about her beau, spillin’ the big secret that he put a ring on it in the spring of 2022. And guess what? The big reveal happened live on air while she was doing her thing at the Chelsea Flower Show on BBC Breakfast.
Before hitting the big 6-0, Steve, her main squeeze, whisked her away for a sweet stroll around Berkshire, close to their love nest. Picture this: a sunny day, a picnic by the river, watching boats go by – a regular romance movie scene, right?
Well, Steve, being the sneaky romantic, starts fidgeting, and Carol’s like, “What’s up?” And boom! He’s on one knee, popping the question. Classic move. Carol, a bit shocked at first, thinking it was a joke, but nope, it’s the real deal. She says yes, of course!
Now, let’s talk about that bling. Steve knows his stuff; he picked out the perfect ring. A halo ring with a shiny central diamond and more diamonds around it – classic move, Steve! Carol’s impressed, not just with the ring but also with the fact that he nailed the size. Love is in the air!
Does Carol Kirkwood Have Children?
Love comes in all shapes and sizes, and so do families! In the tale of Carol Kirkwood and Steve Randall, it’s a bit of a family blend. Mr. Randall brings a teenage daughter from his past marriage into the mix, adding an extra dash of family love to the Kirkwood-Randall combo.
Now, let’s rewind the love clock a bit. In the pages of Carol’s love story, she was once married to Northern Irish cricketer Jimmy Kirkwood. Their love journey kicked off in 1990 when she was just 28. But, as the love gods have it, the shock waves of their split rippled through the airwaves in 2008.
The big reveal, however, took a little more time. It wasn’t until Carol took to the dance floor of Strictly Come Dancing seven years later, twirling around with pro-Pasha Kovalev, that she truly opened up about her heart’s journey.
She spilled the beans, saying, “I was married for a pretty long time, and I got married quite young, so it is nice doing things I have the freedom to do as it stands now. If I want to go out to the theatre or go out with my friends for dinner, I have got that freedom.” Cheers to newfound freedom and love!
