BBC Breakfast's Owain Wyn Evans sustains gruesome injury during Children In Need Drumathon

BBC Breakfast's Owain Wyn Evans has revealed the gruesome injuries he's picked up on his Children In Need 'Drumathon'.

The weather presenter, famous for his rendition of the BBC News theme on his home drumkit, has been attempting to drum for 24 hours.

But speaking on The One Show last night he revealed he was suffering cuts from the feat as well as painful arms and back.

He told hosts Lauren Laverne and Harry Judd: "I've got a couple of cuts, my arms are starting to ache now and my back is aching as well.

"But oh my goodness this is just amazing to be part of, you two, and I'm having a great time!"

He has been using the five-minute breaks he is allowed to take even plunging his sore hands into ice-cold water or having his back stretched.

The Welsh broadcaster has been performing on drum kits all around Salford’s MediaCityUK, with a main stage area at the BBC Philharmonic Studio.

But the 27-year-old didn't go it alone, with musicians from around the UK spurring him on. 

It's also not Owain's first drumming injury – he also got a black eye back in October while training for the drumathon.

Posting a picture of his eye he wrote: "BBC Breakfast Drumathon training update.

"This weekend I bashed myself in the face with a drumstick and as a result have a bruised nose and potential black eye.

"Hope you’ve had a productive Monday my sweet things! xxx".
