‘I find it bizarre’: BBC Breakfast presenter Owain Wyn Evans has blasted a cruel homophobic troll after receiving hateful handwritten letters

Owain replied: “The vast majority of the letters I get from people are so, so nice, but I still find it bizarre that people take the time to scribble things like that on a legal pad and send them to me.

“I hope this camp photo doesn’t keep you from eating today, Dahlings! (Warning, letter is inherently hateful).’

Fans and his famous friends like Carol Vorderman and Stacey Dooley were quick to show their support in the comments.

It was recently revealed that Owain will replace Vanessa Feltz on BBC Radio 2’s morning breakfast show.

From January 2023 he will be presenting his program from the BBC Cymru Wales broadcasting center in Cardiff.

It will be the channel’s first program to move from London as part of the BBC’s Across The UK plan.

Feltz left the show for TalkTV in July after hosting the early morning breakfast show for more than 10 years.

The radio program is now in the hands of the self-proclaimed “uncompromisingly flamboyant” presenter Wyn Evans, who has over 20 years of television and radio experience.

His television career began at the age of 18, appearing in children’s programs on the Welsh channel S4C. He then became a weatherman after studying meteorology at the Open University.

Wyn Evans, who presents for BBC’s North West Tonight, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Breakfast, found greater fame during lockdown when a video of him drumming along to the BBC News theme tune went viral.

An hour after he posted the clip to Twitter, it had more than 20,000 likes and 5,000 shares.

He’d also caught the attention of thousands in 2019 when he referenced dozens of Ru Paul’s Drag Race stars during his on-air prediction to celebrate International Drag Day.

“The time has come that I must make a prognosis for my life,” he told viewers. “I’ll spill the tea and tell you that some of those clouds are going to throw some serious shadows today, okay?”

“So this weather front gave us some rain yesterday which is great news for our Nina Flowers in the garden but I hope you didn’t catch Courtney Act in downpours.

“So this weather front actually flew away.”

The married broadcaster’s support of the LGBTQ+ community was revealed in 2020 when the LGBT Foundation let him open the Manchester Pride At Home celebrations.

The virtual event featured a range of online events, activities and support aimed at bringing Pride into people’s homes during the pandemic.

Wyn Evans, who opened the online event, said: “I will officially be a patron of the LGBT Foundation. For those who don’t know, they are an organization that works with lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people. They are an amazing national charity based in Manchester.

“For the past five decades, they have provided a listening ear, friendly smiles, life-saving information, life-improving services and support to LGBT people who often had nowhere else to go. They have also worked with allies across the country to advocate for and achieve political and social equality.”

The broadcaster, who married husband Aaran Rees in 2017, said he was “delighted” to join the “amazing organization” which “supports 40,000 people annually”.

Wyn Evans was also left speechless last year after learning his 24-hour drumathon had raised more than £2.5million for children in need.

During the fundraiser, the weatherman was joined by 50 other drummers as he reenacted his viral rendition of the BBC News theme song. Famous drummers, including McFly’s Harry Judd and percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, also joined him during the event.

He ended his marathon with a performance of Britney Spears’ hit Baby One More Time. The weatherman is said to be a big fan of the pop star.

“I feel overwhelmed, people have been so generous,” Wyn Evans told the BBC after the marathon.

“Surprisingly, my hands held up well, but we had some issues with my arms because they’ve been moving for 24 hours.

“Thank you to everyone who put their hands in their pockets and donated. BBC Children In Need helps causes that are close to my heart.”
