sunrise Star James Tobin has kept viewers entertained while standing in for weather forecaster Sam Mack.
While speaking to Edwina Bartholomew and Mark Beretta, who were presenting in the studio on Tuesday, he looked relaxed as he dipped his feet in the water at Newcastle’s Merewether Baths.
“Not a bad way to start the day,” he said, basking in the sun.
“Lots of friendly locals and this is a great spot.”
Edwina and Mark thought it would be a good idea to convince James to make the most of his surroundings by taking off his clothes and jumping into the water.
“I know you take great care of your hair. It always looks pretty, but I think you can come in.”
“That is, the week between Christmas and New Year.”
As Marc added, James was not very convincing.
James embraced the courage and began to remove the microphone attached to him before taking off his shirt and jumping into the water to swim.
“I’ll do it,” I heard him say.
“The audio guys say, ‘Don’t jump in with that mic.’ Just come in,” urged Edwina.
After he sobered up and got out of the water, the host said it was time for him to get back to work.
The caption of the video, posted on Instagram, reads, “It didn’t take much convincing from Edwina and Mark to get James to undress and jump into the water.”
Viewers praised the star for jumping into the water without a second thought.
“Nice! More topless weather for JT!” commented one.
“Well done JT,” said another.
“He’s a great guy,” added the third.
