Some interesting news on the horizon, as reported by The Guardian today. It appears bosses of the BBC's Radio Five Live are keen to have Tomasz as its weather-presenter:
I thought the article was a bit harsh, again we the have "despite the gaffes" canard-- apparently this is why he's high-profile. For pity's sake, don't these journos get it? Tomasz isn't notable (just) because of his "gaffes": It's because people love his style of presenting, love his personality, he does an excellently engaging job of presenting the weather. Oh yeah, and he's rather gorgeous as well... alright that factor is lost on radio, but least we still have Tomasz's melifluous voice!
Tomasz has nothing on Nicky Campbell in the gaffe-stakes, considering his difficultly with West Kent Hunt-- not once-- but twice! Reverend Spooner would have been proud. Yet nobody harps on about Campbell's cock-up do they? They're just jealous, Tomasz.
However I note a very reliable source on Facebook, simply comments: "Don't believe it!!".
Meanwhile, thanks for Matt for the following: It appears His Loveliness has a book coming out! Amazon has the following info...

I had wondered whether it was our Tomasz, but then we found this on the Waterstones site. That biography sounds familiar! Although he's not mentioned as an author? I hope it's been authorised by him...
Speaking of which, I wonder what type of book this is? A biograhpy, or a weather-related tome. Or a nice beside-table book with lots of pictures of Tomasz, which means I won't be leaving the house on a Sunday.
As Jim Taggart used to say: "Currrriouserrr and currriouserrrr". I'll be keeping my ear to the ground, and certainly listening for Tomasz..
