Carol Kirkwood gave fans a glimpse into her love life and admitted her secret boyfriend is the "best thing that's ever happened" to her.

The BBC Breakfast star didn't give away too much about her new man but did reveal that he is "extremely handsome".

She split from her husband Jimmy Kirkwood – who is a former field hockey player – in 2008 after 18 years of marriage.

Although she still isn't sure if she will ever tie the knot again, the weather presenter still gushed over the romantic anonymous boyfriend.

"'I don't want to say too much about my boyfriend, but I will say that he is very kind and very funny – he's always making me laugh. And extremely handsome, as well," she told Prima Magazine.

"He always makes me a cup of tea before I go to work in the morning, which is very romantic – it's 2.45am and he often leaves me a little love note for when I come home from work. That, to me, is worth a million red roses."

The 59-year-old added: "He is the best thing that's ever happened to me, without a shadow of a doubt."

In 2016, Carol revealed she had started dating somebody and told the Express: "I'm very happy in my relationship status at the moment. I'm not single."

However, it's unclear whether the man she talked about in 2016 is the same secret boyfriend as now.

She previously discussed how she went about her life after divorcing Jimmy.

Carol told Radio Times : "I found myself when I got divorced. I started to do things and to think, ‘I’m not going to say no, I’m going to say yes!’"

Before she got into another relationship, the star spent a lot of the time being surrounded by friends and family.

She once told The Sun: "I’ve got so many friends that I go out with. We all have fun together and I’m happy as it is.

"I was married for a long time and I got married quite young so it’s nice doing things I have the freedom to do now."
