    ENCORE: BBC Breakfast weather presenter Carol Kirkwood on her passion for being active

     Louise Minchin and  Annie Emmerson talk to BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood.

    There's often a daredevil side to Carol's work. She can be found trying everything from racing high powered speed boats to a charity tandem ride for Children in Need. Somehow most Children in Need broadcasts find her trying something new, which usually involves dancing or singing live. She's appeared as part of the newsreaders' "Rocky Horror Show", The Weather Girls' "Raining Men", she's danced the Can-can and duetted on "Baby, It's Cold Outside".
    In 2006 , she even learned to ice skate for charity - performing live for BBC One's New Year's Eve Special.
    Carol talks to Louise and Annie about enjoying being active, from running and walking to cycling.
