Ahead of the gongs of the BBC 6 O'Clock news, Louise Lear presented the weather segment, or at least tried to while fighting back uncontrollable laughter. Newsreader Simon McCoy was also surpressing giggles, but luckily for him, he wasn't on camera for very long.

Having made it through, a relieved Lear said:

McCoy replied:

A few minutes later, newsreader Simon McCoy tweeted to fellow BBC man Jeremy Vine.

She is fab! Neither of us responsible! #justsaying

We're not sure how much we believe that.
