Good Morning Britain viewers were given an early wake-up call on Thursday as Brian Blessed took over the show’s weather duties.
In his slightly mad, long-winded style, the veteran actor delivered an impromptu weather report as regular meteorologist Laura Tobin watched on in despair.
About Scotland he said: “It’s always wet, whenever I’ve climbed a mountain there.
“Watch out for the men in their kilts, the wind will blow right up their kilts.”

Blessed, 80, had already left co-presenters Susanna Reid and Kate Garraway in hysterics as he slammed regular host Piers Morgan as “ugly”.
“I can’t stand that Piers Morgan,” he said.
“He’s so ugly and he never bathes. It’s nice to be with the two young ladies,” he added, before delivering his Flash Gordon catchphrase “Gordon’s Alive!”
