    Hostage: I'll be weatherman
    By JULIE MOULT

    ONE of the 15 British sailors held hostage by Iran wants to quit the Armed Forces — to be a weatherman.

    Royal Navy Lt Felix Carman, 26, was paraded in front of the cameras during his time in captivity — and further developed a taste for telly after being interviewed following the group’s release earlier this month.

    Yesterday it emerged that he has spent a day at Sky News HQ after bosses were impressed by his TV appearances.

    Felix, of Port Eynon, South Wales, was shown the ropes by weather girl Lisa Burke, who shared with him the tricks of the trade.

    A source said: “Felix is very keen to get into TV.

    “He impressed a lot of telly executives with his calm and quiet authority on-screen. He tried out presenting the weather off-air and was an immediate hit.”

    Bizarrely, it seems that Felix’s experience in Iran made him aware he was a natural in front of the cameras

    Seems to be that 'fame', however gained, is addictive - and makes the sufferers so easily exploited...
     
  2. It had been reported that he had mentioned this as an aside after an interview at the press conference. I though he was joking...
     
  3. He's got some front.
     
  4. At least there's no navigation involved if you're a weatherman :p
     
  5. He'll go down a storm, if he doesn't go for it it will have been a mist opportunity.
     
  6. No clouds in his horizons then.
     
  7. Just goes to show every cloud has a silver lining.
     
  8. And he does a mean temperature.
     
  9. Though keep him well away from typhoons.
     
  10. His cognative powers are clearly occluded
     
  11. And can he really take the pressure?
     
  12. A source said: “Felix is very keen to get into TV.

    “He impressed a lot of telly executives with his calm and quiet authority on-screen. He tried out presenting the weather off-air and was an immediate hit.”

    "Todays sea is calm although Iranian Gunboats are heading in from the east so don't leave home without A Burkha"
     
  13. Will he be snowed under with offers?
     
  14. QFE or QNH ?
     
  15. I think he's set his sights too high.
