Steve Carell hijacks the weather forecast


The Anchorman actor walked in during the forecast and stood in front of the weather map before offering Tobin some advice.

We amuse ourselves with clips of other celebrities who've tried their hands at hosting the weather - from Prince Charles to Mark Wahlberg - below:

Tom Hanks


Tom Hanks could cheer any cold, grey morning with this dance-filled forecast. The actor was promoting Larry Crowne on a Spanish TV programme back in 2010, and when inevitably asked questions in Spanish which he didn't understand, he performed a little dance instead.

The next thing Hanks knew, he was presenting the weather forecast and dancing A LOT. We have no idea what's going on, and neither does Hanks.

Gerard Butler


Presenter Clare Nasir attempts to look as cool and breezy as the weather (and not at all starstruck) as Gerard Butler gatecrashes her forecast on GMTV back in 2009.

The Scottish actor seems to give more charm and charisma than we've seen him exude on the silver screen for a long time. Mind you, his finger pointing is slightly disconcerting and looks like it could be heading straight for Clare's cleavage.

Prince Charles

Prince Charles does the weather


Prince Charles proved he was a complete natural at presenting the weather forecast when he stepped in for BBC Scotland during a public visit to Glasgow.

We felt so relaxed as he warned us of the potential for a few flurries over Balmoral. The royal even joked: "Who the hell wrote this script?!" after noticing references to several royal residences made especially for him.

The Duchess of Cornwall


Of course we couldn't give you Prince Charles without including his other half Camilla, who also gave weather reporting a good go. And what a professional, with an added, underlying bite of sarcasm.

Mark Wahlberg


Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg knows his Philadelphia record highs people - just watch as he takes complete command while reading the weather report for Good Day Philadelphia back in January.

In a thick Philadelphia accent, he even advises those stuck in traffic: "Stop and get yourself a hoagie!" That's sound advice to us.

Steve Carell (again!)


We actually thought Steve Carell was a weatherman when we first caught a glimpse of him presenting the traffic and weather report as his character from Date Night on GMTV in 2010.

"There will be lots of umbrellas unfolding this weekend," Carell casually says before introducing us to "ice in triangles" for the very first time. Which are the most dangerous types of ice storms, apparently. And as for London, "it's sun and cloud, mixed together making... nothing". He's got a point.

David Letterman


David Letterman discusses his sensitive skin while attempting to present the weather forecast with Al Roker back in 1990. Which results in Letterman talking over Roker throughout.

"Ooh what's this? You might want to think about having that biopsied," he offers, after spotting a 'high pressure area'. We're still taking in the '80s-ness of it all.
