Facts about Sally Nugent

Most recently in October 2018, Sally Nugent was allegedly using "slur" against Carol Kirkwood under the microscope. Carol and Sally were co-hosts of the famous BBC Breakfast morning show together with Dan Walker. In the episode, Nugent presented the sports segment and, towards the end, she went on to say, referring to Carol: "We said it was raining champagne in Paris... (referring to the Ryder Cup) I'm giving you the perfect link to someone else who likes it when it rains champagne". That was nothing serious but only casual friendly humor among two veteran colleagues.
