BBC Breakfast was left in chaos on Friday morning, as weather presenter Owain Wyn Evans stormed off the set live on-air.

Owain appeared on the programme to discuss his epic feat of drumming constantly for 24 hours in order to raise money for Children In Need.

He has already managed to smash existing records with the most money raised for a 24-hour challenge ever, surpassing the £3million mark.

But, appearing on the sofa alongside presenters Naga Munchetty, Jon Kay and Mike Bushell, Owain made it clear he isn't keen on seeing another set of drum sticks any time soon.

Discussing his achievements, he said: "I can't believe it raised that much."

Jon chimed in: "Well you don't know the final figure yet, do you? That will be revealed tonight, but the latest number we had earlier in the week was what?"

Owain explained: "It was over £3million. And, as I've said a few times, but I think it really does sum it up for me. Three million quid, a lot of that would have been single donations of a fiver or a tenner.

"A fiver or a tenner for some people is two coffees, but for some people it's a lot of money, and that's what really got me. Knowing that people were giving what they could and that money is going to help children across the UK."

However, things soon turned chaotic as Mike brought out another set of drum sticks – with a surprise in mind for Owain.

As Naga said: "We will find out the amount later. I wouldn't be surprised if it was higher… I don't know, but I really wouldn't be surprised if it was higher, because you touched peoples' hearts as well as your own."

Mike responded: "And it's likely to go up as well tonight, because I've got a surprise for Owain. He's doing it again, live from the show tonight!"

Owain quickly picked himself up from the couch and fled the set, explaining: "No, I've seen the drum sticks everyone, bye!"

Mike called: "No, come back! We need you!"

Thankfully, Owain was giggling as he returned to the sofa, as Mike then explained: "Yeah, one of the highlights of the show tonight on BBC One. He needs the drum sticks back… There we go. You'll be drumming live, using Ed Sheeran's drum kit, apparently?"

Effortlessly spinning a drum stick in his hand, Owain admitted: "I'm there doing something, I've got some drums."

Naga laughed: "Your nonchalant little spin of those! You couldn't resist, could you?"

The presenters remarked that there had been a huge change in his demeanour after the drumathon, which he admitted exhausted his arms with the constant movement.

BBC Breakfast airs from 6am every day on BBC One.
