Live television can give us unexpected funny moments, and that's just happened with BBC journalist Carol Kirkwood. Ms Kirkwood, a BBC weather presenter, was pulled over by her guide dog during a live telecast on Monday morning. The video has been shared by the media house and Ms Kirkwood herself. There we see Ms Kirkwood holding the Labrador by its leash. Just as she signs off, the dog decides to hurry beyond the scene. In the process, it pulls down the reporter who falls on her face right in front of the camera.

Ms Kirkwood was reporting from the Chelsea Flower Show when the incident happened.

BBC Breakfast presenters Dan Walker and Sally Nugent at once said, “We got a Kirkwood down. We got a Kirkwood down."

After Ms Kirkwood pulled herself up, the presenters asked her if she was alright. To that, she replied, "Yes, yes. She's a very strong girl, Flash."

Show presenters and Ms Kirkwood laughed off the funny incident.

Ms Kirkwood shared the video on Twitter and wrote, "Flash!"

BBC's caption to the video is, "Flash the guide dog is running the show on BBC Breakfast this morning."

The video has been viewed more than 1 lakh times on Twitter. The incident was funny as well as adorable for many users. Labrador owners could relate very well.

One such user, Esther Frisby, wrote, "That's the most graceful face plant ever and a typically gracious reaction! Being the proud owner of a 9 month Labrador- I experience it on a daily basis."

Another user named Helen Bella wrote on similar lines.

Betty Redondo, another BBC journalist commented on the dog's name and her behaviour, "Flash by name - flash by nature!"

Users fell in love with the dog. A user named Cheryl Chalmers called Flash a “sweet dog”.

Users commended Ms Kirkwood's professionalism in handling the situation.

"Really, hope you're ok. And you still end up smiling, Carol, you are always the professional," wrote a user named Catherine Corkery.

A user, Aby Vee, applauded her for “being such a good sport”.

Users were also concerned and asked Ms Kirkwood if she was really okay.

A page named Guide Dogs left a cute reply to Ms Kirkwood's post. They wrote, "Flash passes on her sincere apologies."

We don't doubt that Flash is getting famous very soon.
