BBC Breakfast weatherman red-faced as giggling co-stars spot technical issue

BBC Breakfast star Tomasz Schafernaker suffered a technical error on Sunday morning and desperately tried to cover up the issue.

The 42-year-old weather presenter was back on our screens alongside hosts Ben Thompson and Rachel Burden to share the forecast for the nation.

After he wrapped up his weather reporter, the metrologist was noticeably standing very still.

He began feeling for his microphone pack and stumbled his words when he realised it was on the floor.

Ben quickly noticed something was off, prompting him to ask: "Are you alright Tomasz, what are you doing?"

Bending down to pick up the mic pack, Tomasz laughed and said: "Okay, if you must see!"

Ben and Rachel both giggled when they saw Tomasz holding up his tangled electronic equipment.

"Look, this is what’s on the floor, there’s lots of tech here," the weatherman explained, as he tried to get himself free of the cables.

"Do you know what, sometimes when we walk around, I get a bit caught up!"

"You’re tangled up!” Ben remarked, as Tomasz scrambled to get himself together.

He later joked: "There’s all sorts of tech around here and you don’t see it."

Realising what he had pointed out, Ben told him: "Sorry, I just threw you under the bus there didn’t I?"

"Yeah you did," Tomasz responded, as Rachel continued laughing hysterically in the background.

As Tomasz remained tangled, Ben said goodbye to him for now, saying: "Go and untangle yourself and see you in a bit."

Rachel then quipped: "Don’t want to see anything else below that line by the way. Definitely not."

Ben joked: "He may have his shorts."

Referencing the intense heatwave in the UK at the moment, Rachel replied: "You’d forgive him today though."

However, the tech error wasn’t the only thing that distracted viewers as Tomasz’s hair has recently prompted many to tweet about it.

One person said: “Marvelling at Tomasz's 80s footballer hair."

Another commented: “OK I've shouted at the TV screen enough and you haven't listened so now it's time to tweet."

Tomasz immediately replied to the post, saying: "Jog on, don’t follow or watch me.”

The tweets continued, with someone else adding: “Loving the new hair Tomasz."

"Tomasz is my favourite weather presenter," a third fan added.

After joining the Met Office, Tomoasz trained as a meteorologist.

He joined the BBC Weather Centre in 2000, working as a broadcast assistant, and became a presenter in the same year; this made him the youngest man to present the BBC Weather.

He spent some time giving BBC regional forecasts across the UK and now works on BBC Breakfast.
