Tomasz Schafernaker, the weatherman infamous for pretending to itch his chin after being caught on camera giving a colleague the middle finger [see video below], is being moved off screen into a prominent role on 5 Live.
Schafernaker is being lined up for the breakfast show presented by Nicky Campbell and Shelagh Fogarty, according to MediaGuardian.
Other gafffes include getting the giggles on Radio 4 after telling listeners it would be “quite a muddy shite” at the Glastonbury music festival. And he was unable to stop laughing after a newsreader on the Beeb’s 24-hour news channel suggested he had a “frozen ball”. “Just the one!” he replied.
