Carol Kirkwood talks Strictly Come Dancing outfit concerns: ‘Bit more modest’
Carol Kirkwood, 58, opened up about her Strictly Come Dancing experience, when she joined the cast for the 13th series in 2015. Despite finishing in 10th place with her dance parter Pasha Kovolev, the BBC Breakfast weather presenter loved every second of it and spoke about how grateful she was to the costume department for accommodating her needs when it came to concerns about the glamorous gowns.
Strictly fans know the outfits are sophisticated and, of course, full of sequins and glitz.
And it’s good news that the fancy frocks are then passed on to dance companies and retailers so they can be used again.
The get-ups are designed determined on the style of dance the couple are performing; some can be quite revealing and others offing full coverage.
This was something Carol admitted was a concerned about when she was on the show, worrying about “low dresses”.

Chatting to BBC co-star Louise Minchin and Annie Emmerson on their Her Sprit podcast, the forecaster revealed she was thankful for how the costume department took into account her feelings.
“Strictly was amazing, it was one of these programmes I’ll never forget or regret doing,” she beamed.
“I was conscious of low dresses but they accommodated that, so it was a wee bit more modest.”
When it came to the actual dancing part of it, Carol gushed over training one-on-one with Pasha, but when it came to Friday’s group rehearsal, she was far from comfortable.
“It’s really strange,” she grinned, “What can go wrong in 90 seconds? Everything can!
“You can miss a beat, you can start off on the wrong foot through nerves, and then it can all just be a disaster!”
And after the dance is over, the contestants have to face the judging panel.
“You know you’re going to be annihilated by the judges,” Carol winced, before quickly adding, “Not all of them!”
