He can present the weather, he can drum, now it turns out he can sing too. BBC meteorologist Owain Wyn Evans has performed a version of charity single ‘Thank You, Baked Potato’ with Matt Lucas, doing all of those things. Except presenting the weather.

Lucas released a new recording of the song, originally written for comedy gameshow ‘Shooting Stars’, in support of his Feed NHS charity project. Since then, the project has spawned a children’s book and toy, and Lucas has been performing the song on Twitter with various celebrities – the latest being Evans.

“I loved my little sing and drum along to the iconic ‘Thank You, Baked Potato’ song with the incredibly lovely Matt Lucas”, says Evans on Twitter.
