Meteorologist Tomasz Schafernaker, 43, was confronted by a Twitter user regarding a “much-needed” change to an element of his presenting style. In full view of the TV host’s 92,800 followers, he responded to the tweet.
Tomasz initially tweeted a selfie as he posed in front of the BBC studio.
He wrote in the caption: “BBC News at Ten weather coming up.”
User @John_Adesola wrote in response: “Haha loved the trainers mate! A much needed refresh to the old boring corporate – office outfits #bbcnews.” (sic)
Excited by the fan’s approval, Tomasz rushed to the social media platform to express his gratitude.

“We can’t chop off the Northern Isles, and we can’t show more of France as it’ll shrink the UK…
“Then you won’t be able too see anything! Trust me, we know the limitations.”
However, a second social media user challenged Tomasz, insisting that the map’s positioning could be changed to avoid it being too low.
Redders63 said: “There is a way around it, so U don’t have 2 jump up & down 2 present the weather.
“Shrink the map 2 a more sensible size OR display it as per the OS mapping ppl do, that way the whole of the British Isles is shown.” (sic)
Tomasz explained that making changes to the way the Northern Isles are shown had previously caused “a lot of upset,” and therefore they would not be changed again.
He said: “No, putting the Northern Isles in a box caused a lot of upset.
“They do not want it and we will respect that.”
