Carol Vorderman: Countdown star calls out BBC weatherman amid show debut ‘Such a tart’

Countdown legend Carol Vorderman, 59, gushed over her BBC Radio Wales co-star Owain Wyn Evans, 36, before taking aim at him on Twitter. It comes after the weatherman posted a video of himself playing the drums alongside the BBC News theme moments after finishing a weather report yesterday.

Owain went to extra lengths to entertain viewers at home during lockdown as he shared the footage of himself playing the drums on social media.

Taking to Twitter, Carol retweeted the video and wrote: “I love this man @OwainWynEvans…no other weather presenter like him….he’s FABLAS….”

“Watch us this Sunday on @S4C being naughty while he’s teaching me Welsh..”(sic)

BBC Scotland weather presenter Judith Ralston replied: “I’m with you @carolvorders. He’s one of life’s good people and as my kids say a total LEGEND.”(sic)

Owain said: “Jude you are an absolute darling, I love you!”

Despite the love everyone showed, it didn’t take long for chaos to ensue after BBC host Simon McCoy questioned Owain.

He joked: “I thought I was your darling #twotimer.”

In a bid to rectify his comments, Owain replied: “Fear not – Judith is my darling, you Simon are my daHling and Vorders is my daHHHling #floozy.”

As Carol cheekily chimed: “You’re a tart,” followed by a laughing face emoji.

Judith admitted she wasn’t going to get involved, as she added: “I’m going to maintain a dignified silence here… I’m the darling (with the rrrrolled Scottish R!)”(sic)

With the Countdown legend commenting: “And I”m his dahhhhling… with an entire print shop of ‘h’s… xxx,” before adding: “SUCH A TART”(sic)

The cheeky joke comes after Owain caused a social media frenzy with his drumming skills.
