"Get a bump. It's a positive must if you want to go anywhere weather-wise," said top BBC TV weather reporter Kelly Breasley to a party of teenage girls touring BBC studios yesterday.
"Whether it's real or fake, you'll endear yourself to pensioners, arouse protective instincts in male viewers and excite the 30-something body clock brigade."
"Of course you'll have to take time off eventually to give birth......or at least appear to. But no one gives a stuff what weather presenters do off screen anyway so it's never a problem. I've got about five kids I think. Only one of them's real!" laughed Kelly.
"One word of warning though. Stand well clear of the map on air in case you obscure it. My name is mud in Cornwall."
