BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood took to social media this morning to mark her colleague and friend’s last day at work. The 59-year-old old said she is going to miss Louise Minchin, who quit BBC Breakfast earlier this year after almost two decades.

Today is Louise’s last day fronting the morning show, which Carol has also been a part of since its inception.

“Oh @louiseminchin,” Carol’s tweet began, followed by a crying emoji.

“Going to miss you GG… we have worked together since the early days of News24 (as was!).

“It’s been fun,” she added.

“Look forward to seeing you soon my lovely friend,” Carol signed off with another crying emoji, in view of her 210,000 followers.

“Yes it’s a sad day….going to miss you sweetie xxxx,” said Twitter user Anthony53537827.

“We shall all miss Louise. Such a ray of sunshine,” added user SkiingChrisToGo.

“Don’t say your retirement is coming soon,” a worried user named DonalHarringt17 added.

Louise, 53, has also taken to the micro-blogging site to thank BBC Breakfast viewers for their support over the years.

“Good morning and thank you for all your love support and messages xxxx.(sic)

“Last #sofaselfie #BBCBreakfast,” she added, in view of her 218,700 followers.

A picture of the presenter and her co-star Dan Walker on the set of the programme accompanied the post.

Dan went on to reveal that their last morning together had been plagued by technical difficulties.

Louise’s security pass was cancelled a day early so she was unable to get into the building to present the show.

Her computer login had also expired.

“Classic BBC magic this morning… Louise’s pass has already been cancelled so she couldn’t get in the building!

“When she eventually got in… her computer login had expired,” he wrote online along with a string of laughing emojis.

The pair have fronted the show together for five and a half years.

Dan described his colleague as “amazing” and said it will be “strange” to host BBC Breakfast without her.

“It might be a touch emotional,” he tweeted earlier in the week.
