BBC Breakfast’s Jon Kay was ‘splattered’ on the air by pigeons

BBC presenter Jon Kay asked Carol Kirkwood if she had any tips on how to remove bird droppings from a linen coat after he was “splashed” online.

ay, who was announced last week as the new regular presenter on BBC Breakfast from Monday to Wednesday, was from Cambridge wearing a beige linen suit when the incident happened.

After asking weather presenter Kirkwood for her top tips for staying cool during a heatwave, he said: “Carol, do you have any tips for removing bird poop from a linen jacket? Because I just got splashed by a pigeon…”

While going to wipe his coat collar and ask: “Did I come in wet..?” Kirkwood suggests: “Try one of these wet wipes, it can spread a little, but if you use a few…”

Kay, 52, born in Hull, added: “It can be messy right? I’m a bit worried about this. I also have another coat – maybe we’ll take that option now and go to the dry cleaners in a bit.”

At the end of his segment, he quips: “I’ll put on my coat and will try to sort it out, in the meantime I’m just glad it’s not a swan, to be honest say, it’s just a dove.”

Kay changed into a dark coat after the incident to present the rest of the show.
