Rebel BBC weatherman Tomasz Schafernaker faces storm by refusing to cut his long ’70s porn star’ lockdown hair

LOCKS LIKE PAIN AGAIN

BBC weatherman Tomasz Schafernaker may face a storm after vowing to keep his lockdown mop.

Viewers have likened it to a 1970s porn star’s while meteorological godfather Bill Giles also had a veiled dig.

Tomasz, 42, was asked online what he plans to do about his long locks now barbers have reopened.

He replied: “Keeping - it’ll need a little styling but that’s it.” 

He added: “My choice.”

Last month veteran sky-watcher Bill warned about “shaggy sheepdog” weathermen who may be less believable because viewers could not see the whites of their eyes.

Some expressed their disapproval after lockdown eased this week, with one tweeting: “I see Tomasz Schafernaker couldn’t get a hair appointment.”

Another woman remarked: “My mum has just watched the news about hairdressers reopening, and her first question was whether Tomasz Schafernaker has had his hair cut yet.”

One viewer described his haircut as “a cross between a member of ABBA and a 1970s porn star”.

Polish-born Tomasz was previously caught on camera playfully sticking his middle finger up at BBC news host Simon McCoy, 59.

However he has no shortage of fans — and was voted the UK’s favourite weatherman in 2017.
