BBC Breakfast star Jon Kay missing from show as Carol Kirkwood’s absence continues

Jon Kay was missing from his usual spot alongside Sally Nugent on the BBC Breakfast sofa on Tuesday morning.

The journalist normally appears on the program from Monday to Wednesday each week, but has been replaced by co-host Ben Thompson, who regularly steps in for the main hosts when they are away.

Jon became main anchor last year following the departure of Dan Walker, who left to anchor 5 News.

The 53-year-old wasn’t the only star absent from the show as weather presenter Carol Kirkwood was also nowhere to be seen, while Matt Taylor stood by with the latest weather updates.

Although Carol has yet to address her absence, it is likely that she is simply on a well-earned vacation and is on annual leave.

During her time off from the program, Carol no doubt enjoys spending quality time with her fiance Steve Randall.

Speaking about the early days of her romance with Steve, Carol explained that the couple’s relationship grew naturally out of friendship. “We were friends before we got into a relationship, so we knew each other pretty well before we started dating,” she told Closer magazine. “That was nice because it just happened.

“None of us were looking for romance and there it is, just unfolding. It’s so beautiful. Who would have thought I’d be remarrying at this advanced age? I sure didn’t.”

Both Carol and Steve will be able to enjoy some lounging while the presenter takes a break from BBC Breakfast as the Scottish star previously revealed that her partner wakes her up with a cup of tea when her alarm goes off at 2.45am for work.

“Even though I tell him every time, ‘Don’t get up, you go back to sleep,’ he always insists on bringing me my tea,” she told The Mirror.

As for when they’ll walk down the aisle, Carol explained that the couple hasn’t put a date in the diary yet. “I want to get married again. We’re very happy and in love, and we’re thrilled to be together, but we don’t have a wedding date yet,” she said.

Sharing her hopes for their big day, she continued: “I think we’re going to have an intimate wedding. We don’t just want to squeeze it in, we want it to be a celebration.”
