Carol ran off the screen, with a bemused Louise remarking: “Carole’s been scared off, thank you, Carol, it’s been really enjoyable from here!”
Dan was also left baffled by his co-star’s move after she failed to return to the screen.
The host told viewers: “I don’t think I’ve ever seen Carol sprint off for the end of the weather!”
And realising she wasn’t coming back, he said: “Right that’s it, she’s gone! Anyway, we don’t need Carol, we’ve got Bananarama!”
