Former BBC Breakfast presenter Bill Turnbull, 65, has shared a mischievous comment about his friend Carol Kirkwood’s new project away from fronting forecasts for BBC Weather. The 58-year-old meteorologist is set to release her first book, Under a Greek Moon, which is now available to pre-order.

While congratulating his former BBC colleague on her novel, Bill couldn’t help but tease her about it at the same time.

It comes after Carol shared a snap of herself posing with her latest project while announcing she had joined Facebook to post her first video about her book.

She penned in view of her 204,000 Twitter followers: “Finally I’ve joined the 21st century! 

“I’m now on Facebook and I’m so excited to have posted my first video about my book #UnderAGreekMoon.”

Carol then shared a link so fans could follow her official Facebook page and watch the clip.

She concluded by saying: “Come and join me xxx.”

Unable to resist making a witty remark about Carol’s book, Bill was one of many of her followers to take to the comments section of her tweet to share their thoughts.

The journalist responded: “Many congratulations Kirky. Fantastic effort. 

 

“Do I need to call my lawyers? xx,” he cheekily joked in a reply this evening.

It is unclear what Bill was referring to with his witty quip.

However, it is well known that he and Carol have remained close friends ever since they started working together on BBC Breakfast in 2001.  

The book, which Carol describes as a “glamorous, romantic and escapist” read for summer 2021, is one of two novels she signed a deal for with publisher HarperCollins.

The popular weather presenter said ahead of the release of her book: “I am delighted to be working with HarperCollins.

“They are such an enthusiastic, professional and fun publisher who have made me feel at home right from the start.

“This is my first foray into writing and I could not wish for a better partnership and look forward to it being a lasting one!”

She also thanked literary producer and agent Kerr MacRae for his “unwavering belief and confidence” in her abilities, as she described her love for books.

“I love how books transport you to a different life and world, through the use of language and one’s own imagination,” she explained.

“I can’t wait… as we all know, an unleashed imagination has no limitations!”

Meanwhile, Bill left BBC Breakfast in 2016 and is now hosting his own radio show on Classic FM, every Saturday and Sunday morning.

The former BBC star was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer back in 2017 and has spoken candidly about living with the disease.

Bill previously appeared on Good Morning Britain back in November, when he gave an update on his health.

He said: “I’m OK. Good days and bad days, that sort of thing. I’m very much helped I can still work and do my show on Classic FM”.
