I mean whats that all about?

Callofthefishwife Thu 28-Feb-13 18:58:38

No I get more annoyed that they always stand in front of Wales whilst reading the UK forecast. Also hate their tendency to be more specific about what the weather on London and the SE will be than anywhere else.

Thank you, I thought it was my head falling off or something. wtf? Is she leaning against a 45% angle door?

Wincy Willis never leaned.<80s face>

FreshLeticia Thu 28-Feb-13 19:05:52

you and me both Callofthefishwife
Every time! WTF!
Get your bloody elbow off of Wales!

LynetteScavo Thu 28-Feb-13 19:06:38

No, I get annoyed when they turn sideways and it becomes apparent they are 8 months pregnant and are covering the whole of wales, and the west midlands with their bump.

Just asked DH as he always watches ITV news and weather. He said he doesn't mind as it means she sticks her boobs out shock.
He has just told me he follows her on Twitter!

AlisonMoyet Thu 28-Feb-13 19:07:23

WEATHER GIRL?? Wtf. She's a woman.

AlisonMoyet Thu 28-Feb-13 19:08:06

Or a presenter. Or even a meteorologist.

Where are the weather boys?!

ssd Thu 28-Feb-13 19:10:38

oh get a grip Alison

I didn't even notice she covers Wales, I just see her leaning way back and wonder whats wrong with her

LynetteScavo Thu 28-Feb-13 19:13:48

Oh, we have a weather boy on central news. He's at least 30, but he's definitely a boy.

He's very charming, and funny, but I wouldn't marry him.

ssd Thu 28-Feb-13 19:18:04

we've got Sean Batty and he sure wouldn't marry you grin

DameFanny Thu 28-Feb-13 19:19:42

They're not meteorologists on itv though are they?

AlisonMoyet Thu 28-Feb-13 19:25:14

Irrelevant. They're certainly not girls.

I do wonder what it is with weather 'girls' i know blokes who follow them on fb. I find that weird.

LynetteScavo Thu 28-Feb-13 19:50:36

well, it's kinda mutual with Sean Batty and me (have Googled). grin

And I will forever be a girl.

Yes its an annoying. And looks so uncomfortable! Poor woman is going to end up with awful back problems.

AIBU to think that weather girls female weather reporters (?)
seem to always be pregnant. Or maybe its just more noticeable to people living in the west.

Callofthefishwife Thu 28-Feb-13 20:27:31

Someone my DH works with collects weather girl signed photos and has some kind of weird weather girl shrine!!!

They take the piss out of him DH says!

AnyFucker Thu 28-Feb-13 20:31:22

DH and I laugh at this freakily bendy lady every time she comes on, and she goes nearly right angled in the wrong direction

That's gotta hurt

She is very pretty though...very shiny hair

QueenMaeve Thu 28-Feb-13 20:32:18

Yes! Dh shakes his head every time and warns she is going to end up with a curvature in her spine or worse! We call her bendy woman

I don't think the itv ones are meteorologists. They do seem to have a high incidence of pregnancy.

Mrsrobertduvall Thu 28-Feb-13 20:41:42

You can't beat Carol on the BBC morning show.
I love the way she calls Bill Turnbull "Billy"

LynetteScavo Thu 28-Feb-13 20:47:34

Hahahah @ OhYouBadBadKitten - Don't meteorologists get pregnant often? grin

Naysa Thu 28-Feb-13 21:00:41

Alison dear <whispers> this is MN not twitter. It's not cool to hash tag anywhere other than twitter.

FruOla Fri 01-Mar-13 08:59:03

I haven't noticed bendy weather girl/woman, but what is it with the way some of them speak?

I can't help the feeling that there's a Weather Presenter Elocution College somewhere - all those exaggerated words in the wrong place and all those exaggerated pauses in the middle ............. of what they're saying. confused

ssd Fri 01-Mar-13 09:01:40

yes the bendy girl is very pretty, lovely hair and skin

still way too bendy though

JennyPiccolo Fri 01-Mar-13 09:12:38

I saw Sean batty out at the dancing. Famous!

Saltire Fri 01-Mar-13 09:22:53

DH likes Carol on BBc breakfast news. I can't think why grin.
Anyway all you welsh people who complain, at least wales looks big on the map, Scotland jsut looks...well small and weird. grin

pirouette Fri 01-Mar-13 09:27:33

yes, imagine if the map was reversed so Cape Wrath to John O'Groats was predominant and the south coast of England was a distant blob.
That would make Newcastle obscured by the weather 'girl's' breast.

Saltire Fri 01-Mar-13 09:31:33

Pirouette - Scotland would get good weather then if it was reveresed as some forecasters can't seem to get their hands much higher than Manchester Oxford when forecasting good weather grin

ssd Fri 01-Mar-13 09:33:57

I think the script says "when Scotland is mentioned, wave your hand airily in an upward direction, Scotland's up there somewhere"

ssd Fri 01-Mar-13 09:35:02

Jenny, get you stalking seeing sean at the dancing grin

did he say "night night" when he left grin

JennyPiccolo Fri 01-Mar-13 10:14:40

He didn't talk to me, he was eyeing up my pal hmm

JennyPiccolo Fri 01-Mar-13 10:44:22

Also saw pc plum out one night. I'm a a magnet for quasi famous Scottish gay people. See also Karen Dunbar.

Foggles Fri 01-Mar-13 10:47:57

I get irrationally annoyed that they are not wearing clothes appropriate to the weather they are forecasting.

Telling me it's going to be sub zero conditions whilst wearing a summer dress just gets my goat.

pirouette Fri 01-Mar-13 11:18:41

Can I put in my Granny McPhart tuppenceworth but they never wear hats during blizzard/ hurricane conditions either!

Catch their death of cold dancing around half naked like that. <shuffles off>
