BBC Breakfast's Sally Nugent has promoted her co-star's saucy new novel whilst on holiday.
The presenter, 52, jetted off with her girl friends to take some well-deserved rest from work.
As a result, Sally has been missing from the show for the last week, with her role being filled by stand-in host Rachel Burden.

But while Sally has been sunning herself at the undisclosed holiday destination, she has been catching up with some new reading material.
Posting a pic to her Instagram story, the journalist from Birkenhead showed herself at the poolside lounging on a sun-bed.
Whilst under a parasol, Sally had between her legs a new romance novel written by BBC co-star Carol Kirkwood.
Titled Secrets of the Villa Amore, Nugent dubbed the novel: "The perfect summer book," with a double-heart emoji.
Kirkwood, who usually presents the weather on the BBC morning programme, has continued to delve into her secret passion of writing.
The blurb of the story revolves around main character Carina and her life ahead of her wedding to fiancé Giorgio.
"Hollywood starlet Edie is the dazzling bridesmaid. She's hiding something that could destroy her best friend," the blurb continues.
"Mother-of-the-bride Philippa is stunned by the arrival of a lover from her past. Can her marriage survive?
"As the guests gather under the azure skies of the Amalfi coast, scandal and intrigue are waiting to be revealed, and one of the guests will do anything to hide the truth…"
The weather presenter is already well-used to writing, with this newest book the third under her belt.
Her first book – Under a Greek Moon – was critically acclaimed, landing a spot on The Sunday Times best-seller list.
Speaking to Virgin Radio, Kirkwood said she was blown away at the reception to the novel, thanking anyone who had spent "their hard-earned cash" to buy it.
Kirkwood went on to explain that the books have all centred around places that she has been to throughout her life, which helps to bring her vision together.
"It's really an escapist kind of book – it's to take you somewhere glamorous," she confessed.
"Visual imagery is so important to me. I want you to be there with me – to be able to picture it and see where my characters are. What they're doing and eating".
The book has already become a hit, already reaching the top 10 of the Sunday Times bestsellers, just a couple of weeks after it was first published.
