Hostage: I'll be weatherman

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...

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.
 
#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.
 
#11
And can he really take the pressure?

"Todays sea is calm although Iranian Gunboats are heading in from the east so don't leave home without A Burkha"

Will he be snowed under with offers?
 
#15
I think he's set his sights too high.
 
#17
As long as he doesn't freeze in front of the camera.
 
#18
And thus get a frosty reception.

Let's hope he is succesful, there could be a risk of him slipping into depression. At the very least this should drag him out of the doldrums and give him a bright outlook for the next couple of days, becoming cooler as we enter the weekend. An occluded front over north-western Europe will increase the risk of thunderstorms in the home counties, but we can expect it to become clearer further north. Temperatures could reach a maximum of 18 degrees during the day, dropping to 5 or 6 in some places overnight.

Sorry, I got a little carried away.
