Not a newsreader, so already this thread is going off track, but I remember the ITV Weather presenter Martyn Davies had a beard for a brief time before his bosses advised him that he had a beaver on his face.


So did Alex Hill...(remember him?)

Isn't he quite high up in the Met Office these days? I seem to remember him being interviewed on ITV News a few months ago, probably talking about climate change or something weather related.

Also... Just remembered Nick Powell who had a rather tatty beard when he was on Calendar...

Clearly his new bosses at Sky weren't keen on the hirsute look, and it was out with the razor...

Jeremy Bowen used to have something hanging around his face too.


I was rather surprised when he shaved his moustache off, as he had resisted pressure for it to go during his time at breakfast.

Yeah he is head of the Met Office in London now I believe. As for the beard, Alex's suited him, Martyn's did not. Razz
