BBC Breakfast weather presenter Owain Wyn Evans has unveiled the grisly facial injury he received while training for a charity drumming event.
The drumming weatherman is set to complete a 24-hour Drumathon challenge, which will see him play the instrument non-stop to raise money for Children In Need.
Owain posted his latest update on Instagram, which showed him with a growing purple bruise at the bridge of his nose and dark shadows around his right eye.
The presenter’s strawberry blonde hair was artfully ruffled for the candid snap, while a hint of stubble showed at his jawline.
Writing alongside the post, Owain penned: "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," he explained with a crying emoji.
"Hope you’ve had a productive Monday my sweet things! xxx".
Owain’s fans and followers – including best pal Carol Vorderman – were quick to jump into the comments section to share their condolences for his injury.
Carol penned: "Ooh but you do look very butch like that DAHHHHLING!"
Owain couldn’t resist replying: "TRÈS BUTCHÈ meine CYNTAF dahling! Xxxx".
Cyntaf loosely translates to "first" in Welsh – so it’s safe to assume Owain was referring to Carol as his number one.
Someone else posted: "Oh no! Heal soon! PS apart from the bruise, kind of blown away by how flawless you are in makeup free close-up!"
“Badge of honour, you got this!” another fan agreed, while someone else said: “Oh no! You must’ve been going for it Owain! Keep going – you’ll do great sweetie!”
Owain originally announced via Instagram that he would take part in the challenge, writing: "Here we go dahlings! Myself (and the percussive princess) are about to embark on a MAMMOTH challenge for Children In Need!
"I’ll be doing a 24 hour drumathon for @BBCBreakfast on the 12th of Nov. My poor dainty arms!"
Musicians from around the UK will be joining Owain in his monumental task, while Skunk Anansie drummer Mark Richardson joins him to "rally the troops".
The charity Drumathon will also feature stars including comedian Al Murray and percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie.
BBC Breakfast airs from 6am every day on BBC One.
