  1. Don’t do it! Every body loves Tomasz!

  2. The loss of Thomasz and Rob MacElwee – two of the sexiest, most knowledegable weathermen on TV – is a sad day for Britain. Maybe PN can introduce a regular forecast….? we justg cannot lose these guys :-(((

  3. …Who the hell is this guy? He sounds like he should have been fired a while ago.

    My partner and I are absolutely devastated that the gorgeous sex god Tomasz Schafernaker won’t be seen on TV again! Deavastated!

    I used to love seeing him doing the Sunday weather for that farming programme, from time to time, in a lovely pair of jeans showing his delicious bum. Bring him back please BBC and get rid of some of the female weather presenters as there are far too many women presenters on BBC for mine and my partner’s liking.

    By the way Tom, if you’re ever looking for a bed for the night when in the Northants area then just call round!!

    Stuff the BBC there are other channels, lets hope they snap him up.

  6. NOOOOOOOOOOO! Bring him back (Preferably to my place)
    The guy makes the weather forecast interesting and he’s got a warm front to die for!

  7. That’s a real shame. He was mighty fine to look at!

  8. Hahah! Well played flapjack. He is gay, right? ‘Cause otherwise this is abit of a non story, atleast for this website. I know he posed for attitude but really, I’m not sure how much that actually says anymore…

  9. What?!?!

    Tomasz is the reason I started watching the weather again… got fed up with old men, and silly girls. Nice to get some male eye candy…

    Trust the BBC to get rid of the good looking guys.

    Hope another channel snaps him up.

  10. He is a bit tactless but he looks totally edible. I think he should do calendars and porn.

  11. The Halcyon 14 Oct 2010, 11:13am

    Get rid of those other zombies who do the weather – the freak with the eyes and the scruffy bearded old git.

    I hope he goes to ITV/Sky and cleans up. Stupid BBC.

  12. It’s not the BBC who’ve sacked him, it’s the Met Office – a government body (part of the Ministry of Defence, I believe). Still, I’m sure he’ll be inundated with job offers from all sorts of industries… Looking forward to seeing what he does next. Hopefully something that involves fewer clothes.

  13. Gosh nice tits and super name! Think he was in the wrong job though…

  14. not tits – excellent pecs and abs

  15. Well I for one will be switching channels. How dare they remove the best bit of eye candy on the BBC that is Tomasz Shufflnuckle.
    He can always turn a heavy depression into a sunny day. In fact I think he should present the weather in his shorts.
    Its almost as if the BBC want to drive their viewers away.
    We should have a petition. I expect the dreary old BBC will have a dreary old Michael Fish type character. I hope they go bust!

  16. They’ll remove all the ones with a bit of personality and we’ll end up with all the ones with shrill voices or who repeat themselves constantly (Liam Dutton – he must be up for the prize for being the nicest and most boring of them all with hisa monotonous double adjectives (cold and icy, grey and cloudy, wet and damp) – Daniel Corbett – who goes “through the day” at least a dozen times in every forecast) and sheer bad diction (Daniel Corbett – for whom we all live in Ingla, eyarla, scotla or Wales (even he can’t mangle a monosyllable).
    The radio forecasts have become so bad and so short I now just resort to looking out of the window and seeing if the cows are lying down or the cat has its tail in the air.

  17. To summarise a lot of the (rather shallow) comments here: he shouldn’t have been sacked because he’s nice eye candy, irrespective of whether he’s actually any good as a professional weather presenter.

  18. (the real) Ian Bower 14 Oct 2010, 3:57pm

    And this on the Pink News website why exactly? he’s straight so this has nothing to do with queerdom.

  19. robert – the women who we’re kept on we’re kept on due to being eye-candy for hets

  20. (the real) Ian Bower 14 Oct 2010, 4:27pm

    Chester Molestor, are you being facetious with the above comment? I hope so, otherwise you look a bit thick. Suggesting the Met Office hire and fire on the basis of what the queer brigade will have to drool over during the weather reports.

  21. haha! you lot are funny to read… made my day.

    Tomasz is just a fairy to all… However, I like that he has an ordinary personality with his job rather than being a Zombie. I like when he calls places names that he make up, or stuck his finger in the air… just a normal human being who makes mistakes like any average human. But well, workplaces these days are full of computers and humans are expected to behave like programmed machines. What with all the ‘Health & Safety gone-too-far or even the over-hyped equality or discriminatory laws…

    Still prefer friends that I dont need to write a letter to before i crack jokes with them. Sorry to see you go Tomasz. one more person joining the queue at the job centre i suppose

  22. At least he never stands there pop-bellied like many of the very pregnant female weather presenters.

  23. **** You Ian
    I am not answering you as you referred to molestor
    I don’t need that crap on here

  24. Robert (Kettering) 14 Oct 2010, 6:15pm

    He’s so utterly molestable and I’d pay good money to see him in a Gay Porn film! Drooling as I type….

  25. Nooooo!!! dont get rid o this stunning eye candy!!! his not a bad presenter…just human and quite funny!!!!

  26. i am gutted to see him go. he is lovely and very entertaining. However, i dont think he has been sacked – as far as i can make out (i may be well off the mark)he has been moved “off-air”. so i think he is still working for the MET office and has not been sacked….

  27. (the real) Ian Bower 14 Oct 2010, 9:51pm

    Ha! So do people call you molestor on a normal daily basis Chester? Sweet.

  28. Galadriel1010 14 Oct 2010, 10:10pm

    The sexism and mysogeny are astonishing, especially in the earlier posts. And then there’s the fact that if it were straight men saying these things about a woman you’d all be horrified.

    Also, you appear to be unable to read. The BBC haven’t fired him, because he didn’t work for them. The Met Office have removed him from their presenting team, presumably to go back to desk work until he’s learned to be a bit less gaffe-prone.

  29. your immaturity is sadly predictable

  30. (the real) Ian Bower 15 Oct 2010, 10:30am

    And your name is funny or as Tomasz Shafernaker might say “don’t fall asleep in a damp patch Chester”.

  31. I expect better from a news site like this plus I get enough stupidity from homophobes without p*ss-takers who have never even met me
    then there’s the folk who thinks it’s ok to tell people to commit suicide but that would be just another joke to you and the other losers

  32. (the real) Ian Bower 15 Oct 2010, 11:23am

    I would never suggest anyone commit suicide, the majority of people’s lives and families have been affected in some way by that, plus I also don’t approve of the word “commit” which adds a final insult to the person who’s decided to take their own life. It gives the suggestion that whoever “committed” suicide has created some sin against “God” or acted in an irreligious way by taking their own lives whereas the truth is ”God” and ”faith” are probably the last thing on a person’s mind who’s had enough of life and just wants peace.
    Apart from that, lets just agree to the fact that Pink News is a pretty poor source of legitimate news and I apologise for the misuse of your name Chester ™.

  33. Galadriel1010 15 Oct 2010, 11:28am

    Ian: I have no idea what you think you’re talking about. ‘Commit’ is not a religious word. For example, one could commit a crime or commit to an agreement without any religious overtones. Methinks you doth protest too much actually; are you a christian in demial? everything comes back to faith in the end for people like you, and the more you talk about it, the more we’re getting the message.

    It’s okay, you can admit your religion, we’re all friends here.

    In other words. ‘He keeps using that word. I do not think it means what you think it does.’

  34. (the real) Ian Bower 15 Oct 2010, 11:43am

    I think “commit” and suicide were cobbled together by the church don’t you Galadriel? Suicide has been considered a “mortal sin” by the Christian church so I think I’m right in this instance that “commit” does have religious overtones. People in many countries who’ve ended their own lives have been denied burial in Christian cemetries etc so “COMMITTING suicide” does come from the Church. Gimp.

  35. (the real) Ian Bower 15 Oct 2010, 11:48am

    Check this out Galadriel1010, then shut your ass and give your mouth a chance to speak;

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_views_on_suicide

  36. PinK News is legitimate enough for me to be happy
    after the last message I recieved word that a homophobe on youtube also used the molestor idea as in child molester

  37. hmmm he is very handsome…but he was unprofessional and thats a fact. also other weather presenters are getting the boot.even the BBC is cutting costs…oh dear!

  38. Galadriel1010 16 Oct 2010, 2:03pm

    @Ian: How old are you, twelve? I’ve not had anyone think they have to insult me to win an argument since I was in primary school.
    (I sometimes wonder why, as a gay, geeky, morris dancing, christian student, the only place I ever get insulted personally is on here. There’s so much to aim for, and yet nobody ever does…)

    So the church has taken an idea and shaped our understanding of it as a culture, this doesn’t mean that it’s their word, or a religious word at all. For example – marriage. Or are you one of those who thinks that, just because the church has an opinion on marriage, we should let them keep their opinion and the word for their own?

    commit just means ‘to carry into action deliberately’, so it is the perfect and indeed the only word in our wonderfully diverse language that can accurately portray the situation.

  39. Jac Griffin 16 Oct 2010, 10:40pm

    Weather forecasters who don’t slip occasionally, don’t exist. Simply because human-beings that don’t slip up occasionally, don’t exist.

    We get to know about Tomasz’s blunders, because he has a cult following– and he can laugh at himself. What a breath of fresh air. I’d like to see evidence that he fouls anymore than his co-workers. If Jay Wynne bodged, would anyone notice?

    Otherwise Tomasz does a superb job; is entertaining without dumbing down, and does give in-depth explanations about weather on occasion.

  40. ANTONIO_COELHO 14 Nov 2010, 12:27am

    I shall be very sad not to see the lovely Tomasz on the telly any longer, or indead hear his dulcet tones on the radio. I think the cover photo’s he posed for speaks volumes about the large personality he has! I’m pretty sure that someone with his qualities will be snapped up before too long. If not definitely he has a great future ahead of him in gay porn. He camn bottom for me anyday, and all day if I have anything to do with it!
