It comes after Carol shut down rumours of a feud with her BBC Breakfast co-star Naga Munchetty, following a series of frosty on-air exchanges.
The weather presenter, 60, admitted viewers of the show often ask whether she gets on with the newsreader, 47, after picking up on tension.
Insisting they are on friendly terms, she told The Sun: ‘I love Naga and we just have banter. I love the camaraderie between us and everyone. It’s a good, fun job.’
Last month, Naga told her co-star she looked ‘really stern’ as Carol got ready to present the forecast for Christmas.

Naga went on to ask Charlie Stayt, 60, if he thought Carol was had a somber expression as she quizzed if the nation can expect snow to fall on Christmas Day.
Naga said: ‘Carol’s taking a look at the weather, of course, for us this morning.
‘Carol… I think we’re never allowed to ask you about snow on Christmas Day. You always kind of have that really stern look whenever I ask.’
Naga then turned to Charlie and said: ‘Doesn’t she?’
Carol playfully hit back: ‘Naga, I prefer it when you ask me about the snow on Christmas Day on Boxing Day, to be honest, but hey ho.’
Eek! Last month, Naga told her co-star she looked ‘really stern’ as Carol got ready to present the forecast for Christmas
And in November, Naga hit out at Carol for ‘abusing’ her live on air by mistakenly calling her ‘Nana’.
The Scottish weathercaster was presenting her regular slot on the morning news programme before she handed it back to Naga and Charlie Stayt.
But with the nature of live TV, Carol slipped up and accidentally called her female colleague ‘Nana’ – who she says is a producer on the show – much to Naga’s apparent annoyance.
As she finished her forecast, Carol said: ‘The winds will be lighter, just a few showers coming in from the north-west and temperatures ranging from nine to 13 degrees, Nana.’
She immediately added: ‘Naga, sorry, we’ve got a producer called Nana.’
The broadcaster quickly snapped back: ‘You say that every single time, and I come and visit you, and you have a cup of tea. I bring you a cup of tea, and have a nice chat – and I’ve never met Nana,
Jibing around with her co-star, Naga said: ‘I think Nana is a phantom producer that you just make up so you can abuse me by mispronouncing my name.’
Carol quipped back: ‘The shame, Naga, the shame,’ with her face held in her hands.
She then went on to explain to viewers who she accidentally called Naga: ‘Nana is very much alive and kicking and very lovely with it,’ to which Naga replied, ‘I have met Nana. Nana is very nice.
‘You are very lucky to have such a nice producer especially when you behave so badly.’
Making an apparent dig, Carol told Naga: ‘You are awful, but I do like you.’
