He then quizzed Carol on the moment he had to “persuade” the weather forecaster to get on a Helter Skelter while they filmed at a Balloon Festival in Bristol.
Susannah said: “I so remember this! Were you behind my swing on a trapeze in a big top as well @IainMarshall?”
Iain said: “I don’t remember the big top and that sounds like it would have been pretty unforgettable – I did persuade @carolkirkwood to do a Piece To Camera (PTC) coming down a dodgy helter-skelter at the Bristol balloon festival, after all the balloons had left us in an empty field.”
Carol replied: “I remember that too!” followed by laughing-face emojis.
“Hi Carol, we had two hours of broadcasting left and all the balloons had disappeared,” Iain recalled.
