The perils of live TV were once again on show on the venerable BBC yesterday when a weather reporter managed to mangle joggers with dog walkers only to blurt out doggers.
BBC weather reporter Carol Kirkwood was reporting live from the beautiful Greenwich Park in London when she managed the red-faced clanger.
“Good morning everybody and Greenwich Park is one of the oldest and enclosed of the Royal parks and look at it; fabulous, the sun is beating down,” Kirkwood told viewers before stumbling: “We’ve seen lots of doggers. Lots of…not doggers, of course, dog walkers and joggers around here through the course of this morning.”
For the more innocent among B&T’s readership, “dogging” is where two exhibitionists have sexual intercourse in a public place and are watched on by voyeurs. It’s typically done in cars in local parks.
Thankfully, Kirkwood managed to save herself with just a hint of a blush and a dash of British aplomb. Check out the wonderful mishap below:

And, as these things invariably do, social media was quickly having a field day at Kirkwood’s stumble.
