Barbet Spotting

Londonist was very amused to find this little nugget in yesterday's Media and Business section of the Observer (we can't find it online so we'll just reproduce it here word-for-word):

Anyone wondering why Matt Barbet, a presenter on BBC's local London news, was looking a little sun-kissed this week should know that he spent last weekend at 'The Big Chill', a sort of pared-down rave for middle-aged clubbers. Barbet caused a stir among some female fans (yes, he does have some), one of whom was instructed to leave him be by one of Barnet's entourage. 'Stop staring, it will only go to his head', she was told. Next time, Matt, we suggest you apply some sun cream.

Matt Barbet has groupies now? If you are a 'Barbette' or have crushes on any other London-based news readers please do get in touch.

In the meantime, who is that new weather man BBC London have now? We've only caught him once or twice quite early in the morning, but he's very very enthusiastic (ok, he's as camp as Butlins) and has these weird mannerisms which we can't make up our minds about. Is he a genius weather maverick or just annoying?

Can anyone tell us his name?

On a related note, has anyone else ever noticed that BBC London weatherman Peter Cockroft seems to have no arms or legs? Every time he's on TV, his limbs are obscured by the edge of the picture, or some conveniently placed wall. It's a bit like he's one of the puppets from Rainbow. Keep an eye out next time he's on...

What annoys me is he seems always to have a smile on the face. Doesn't matter how big is the tragedy, he never looks serious!

Camp weatherman is called Daniel Corbett. He's totally fantastic and quite off his bonce. There should be a Londonist led campaign to promote him to primetime.

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/b... for more info.
