Lucy Verasamy: ‘It’s weird’ ITV weather presenter spills all on AWKWARD requests

Good Morning Britain and ITV weather star Lucy Verasamy, 38, said she’s been asked out multiple times by men after appearing on TV. Spilling all, she said: “I tweet a lot at work. I’ve got over 100,000 followers,” adding she is usually predominately quizzed about the weather. But she’s also received other requests, adding to Stylist magazine: “I have had men ask me out too.

“It’s weird because people often think they know me because they see me on TV all the time.”

Lucy previously revealed she gets both positive and negative comments on social media following her on-air broadcasts.

But the brunette beauty said she refuses to let any criticism get to her.

She told Daily Express: “I get comments saying my arms are lovely and toned and others saying I look too thin, you can’t do right for doing wrong.

“But if the comments are offensive in any way I’ll delete them, I have no tolerance for that.”

The forecaster went on to say she developed a “thick skin” to ignore any negativity.

She added: “They just want a reaction out of you.

“I have developed quite a thick skin, which is something you have to have.”

Thankfully for Lucy, the presenter’s appearance is regularly praised by her social media fans.

Last week, she stunned in a tight-fitted white top while delivering the latest weather forecast and was inundated with compliments.

The forecaster beamed for the camera, showcasing her glamorous display.

One user cheekily commented: “Marry me.”

A second added: “Happy New Year Lucy loving beautiful you always.”

A third penned: “Gorgeous – don’t care what the weather’s like.”

A fourth wrote: “You always brighten the day! Xxx”

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.

Lucy Verasamy: Five facts you didn’t know about the weather woman

Before She Was Famous

Lucy Verasamy was born and grew up in Norfolk. She went on to graduate with a BSc in geography from London’s Brunel University 17 years ago. This led to a role at the Press Association as a forecaster, which she stayed at for four years.

Party Time

Lucy once went on a “messy” night out with former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson. It all came about back in 2011 during the BBC motoring show’s live tour in South Africa, and she later labelled it a “lost weekend”. “It was definitely one of the best nights I’ve had,” she told the Mirror.


After doing a work experience placement, the star joined Sky and became the broadcaster’s regular weather presenter for breakfast show Sunrise. She was regularly seen on screen for half a decade before moving to ITV rival Daybreak.

Bad Memories

Lucy Verasamy has revealed her worst ever holiday, which came about in her 20s and involved Havana in Cuba. After a series of flight delays, she arrived at her hotel that appeared to have blood stains on the floor. “We slept with our valuables under our pillow,” she told the MailOnline.

Live On Air

Earlier this year, the star received a cheeky comment from stand-in Good Morning Britain host, Richard Madeley. She was wearing a denim minidress for the instalment and joked that it might shrink in the rain. The Richard and Judy star then quipped: “I think you should pop outside at once and test it out.”
