BBC Breakfasts Owain Wyn Evans cries as he hugs husband after charity drumathon

BBC Breakfast weather presenter Owain Wyn Evans was emotional as he reunited with his husband after his epic 24-hour charity drumathon to raise money for Children in Need.

Looking dapper in a light blue tailored suit, the presenter performed Baby one more time by Britney Spears, alongside the Royal Marine Drumming Band, as the clock counted down the final seconds of the challenge.

Gold confetti filled the air as he completed the challenge, with the presenter breaking down in tears and hugging his husband and close friends in an emotional reunion as the 24 drumathon ended.

Speaking straight afterwards, he said: "Jane, I just can't believe that we've done it.

"It's just felt like a really long time. It's been really hard. The generosity of people has just been incredible."

Prior to the drumathon ending, a tired Owain said: "I'm feeling overwhelmed. People have been so generous."

Speaking on the BBC Breakfast sofa straight afterwards, Owain revealed that "surprisingly my hands have held up ok.

"We've had some problems with my arms as they have been moving for 24 hours," but added, "It's been amazing."

It was revealed that Owain had raised a total of £1,617,046 during the drumathon, with Owain saying: "I can't believe that.

"Thank you so much to everybody who has put your hands in your pocket and donated."
