BBC Breakfast’s weatherman Owain Wyn Evans has suffered a brutal injury while training for his upcoming 24 hour ‘drumathon’ for Children in Need.
Next month, Owain will be drumming for an entire 24 hours to raise funds for the charity, and has given himself a black eye in the process.
Showing off a snap of himself on Instagram with what looked to be a bruise on his face, he said: ‘BBC Breakfast Drumathon training update.
‘This weekend I bashed myself in the face with a drumstick and as a result, have a bruised nose and potential black eye.’
Remaining positive as ever, the presenter finished off the post: ‘Hope you’ve had a productive Monday my sweet things! Xxx.’
Owain revealed he would be taking on the ultimate drumming challenge earlier this month and shared his concerns about his ‘poor dainty arms’.
Owain took viewers by storm last year in lockdown when he showed off his impressive drumming skills.
He regularly posts clips of himself playing along to some of his favourite tunes, but when the Welsh presenter started working from home, he went viral with a video of himself drumming to the BBC News theme tune.
Since then, his social media followers have been enjoying regular updates, as he shares renditions of classics including the Strictly theme tune, and songs from Britney Spears and Sophie Ellis-Bextor.
This will be the 41st edition of Children in Need when it takes place on Friday, November 19.
As well as Owain, other stars who will be involved include Joe Wicks, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Ella Henderson and I’m A Celeb winner Giovanna Fletcher.
Rappers Professor Green and Lady Leshurr, and presenters Katie Piper and Ade Adepitan are also part of the all-star lineup.
Children in Need airs Friday, November 19 from 7.30pm on BBC One.
