Actually I don't live in Cornwall John but with 25% Cornish ancestry I am concerned about the county/country.

Here in "The Yeast" (as the announcer introduces the local news) we seem to have some very thin weather girls.


JustJohn Report 10 Jan 2013 09:23

The taller ones hide S Wales, Ken. If twins, neither of us knows whether it is safe to go out. :-( :-(


KenSE Report 9 Jan 2013 22:30

It's a nuisance when they do get pregnant because the bump tends to hide the Cornish weather.

Susanna is much better than Sian IMHO.


JustJohn Report 9 Jan 2013 20:47

There is something about weather girls that stops us men from knowing what the weather will be. (me)

"Has anyone else noticed that all weather girls, on all channels, always seem to get pregnant " (GiN)

Nothing to do with me. I refer you to my comments on another thread that I took bromide as an army cadet and it has worked for some years now. :-D :-D :-D

Has anyone else noticed that all weather girls, on all channels, always seem to get pregnant sooner or later. Maybe it's a prerequisite of the job!
I like Steph, too, she's really natural - not technically a Geordie, though, she's from Middlesborough.

Best female newsreader by far is Jane Hill.

Blond haired Steph is the business journalsit who has been round the South this week,

Jenny is a freelance Journalist who works for the BBC Breakfast when she is asked to do a story round and about the North..She worked for BBC Look North and did he journalism course at Cardiff Uni.

click on this link for Jenny Hill but she has longer hair now.


JustJohn Report 9 Jan 2013 18:26

Thanks Sue. She was not on today - there was another new one on. But I shall watch out for Jenny Hill :-D :-D

How do you spell Suzannah Rhead, Brunard? :-S :-S

Edit. Sue, not Jenny Hill. Yes, Jenny fits description but she has been on quite a bit. And Jenny is prettier. This one was on yesterday (Tuesday) and I had never seen her before. But thought she had something about her :-)

I don't watch daytime TV but strangely we always prefer ITV news and weather in the evening because at least it more or less covers this area. And we have cuddly Bob giving us the weather most days. If we watch BBC local news we end up in the Birmingham area!!

Thanks Bernard........OK Susanna Reid:)


BarneyKent Report 9 Jan 2013 17:12

Of course we all knew who Jude was referring to, but it is surely only polite to spell someone's name correctly.


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 9 Jan 2013 16:57 thinks l'm not the only one spelling it :-P


wisechild Report 9 Jan 2013 16:34

A rose by any other name.........
Everyone knew who she is.


BarneyKent Report 9 Jan 2013 16:32


If you are going to complain, at least learn to spell the girl's name correctly.
Its Susanna not Susanne and its Reid not Reed.

And I think she is gorgeous.


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 9 Jan 2013 15:39

noooo, don't watch ITV unless l have to, l can manage like this for

jude :-)


JustJohn Report 9 Jan 2013 15:32

There is soemthing about weather girls that stops us men from knowing what the weather will be.

I first noted this phenomenon when Ulrika Johnson presented the weather. Then gorgeous Becky Mantin on Anglia ITV who kept winking at me every time I was thinking of isobars.

But my favourite of all is cuddly Sue Charles on BBC Wales. I just smile through her forecast and then someone says "what's the weather like tomorrow, dad?" "Alright, mild with a little rain" I reply. Hoping Sue had not said there would be snowdrifts or an unseasonable heatwave. ;-)

ITV is much worse lol


AnnCardiff Report 9 Jan 2013 14:54

and the solution to this? watch ITV :-D


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 9 Jan 2013 14:45

l like Sian, Louise, Steph (business one and quite young), Bill, Charlie and the sports guy, and miss Chris Hollins.

l find Susanne is up herself too and sadly not genuine when she reads the news, l expect atleast that when l hear someone talking about wars, someone dieing etc
we watch the programme because we like the way the rest of the programme is put across, the entertainment etc and catch up with the news on the radio!!
