Well, blow me - there's always a warm front down south when Tomasz Schafernaker is on our screens! Here's everything you need to know about the BBC's phwoar-some forecaster...

Tomasz Schafernaker

1.  37-year-old Tomasz Schafernaker was born in chilly Gdansk, Poland, on 8 January 1979, making him a wise but shy Capricorn. Click here to see a short vid of Tomaz chatting up the ladies in his home town.

2. He came to the UK as a child, got A Levels in Maths, Physics and Art, then a degree in Meteorology from the University of Reading. Not just a pretty face.

3. In 2001, he was the youngest bloke to ever present the weather for the BBC – aged just 22. Aww, baby!

6. He was named Best TV Weather presenter at the Tric (Television and Radio Industries Club) Awards in 2010.

7. He often jets back to Gdansk but also loves the climate of south Florida, and one day wishes to live there amid the palm trees and tropical weather. Sigh, pass the sun lotion…

8. He makes us giggle. In 2007 he had to apologise after referring to the Outer Hebrides as ‘nowheresville’ and he once forecast ‘a muddy sh*te’ for Glastonbury festival. And check out another classic Schaf blooper by clicking here

9. In 2010, Tomasz started getting really naughty. First he was frowned upon by presenting the weather  in a jumper and jeans. Some viewers were upset, said it was ‘unprofessional’. We didn’t mind… Tomasz Schafernaker flips the finger on air

10. In the same year, he became infamous for flipping the finger at BBC newsreader Simon McCoy on air. The Schaf didn’t realise he was on camera, of course, and quickly tried to disguise his gaffe by scratching his chin.

11. He then shocked his bosses by posing on the cover of Attitude Active magazine, wearing skimpy shorts. A source at the BBC said, ‘Let’s just say that everyone is seeing Tomasz in a different light now…’
