Pregnant weather girl prompts complaints

Television viewers in Switzerland are campaigning for a heavily pregnant weather girl to step down.

Dozens of viewers have written to the Tele-Zueri station to complain about blonde forecaster Jeannette Eggenschwiler.

But Ms Eggenschwiler, from Zurich, says despite being eight months pregnant she enjoys her work and is not ready to take maternity leave.

“They seem to find watching a pregnant woman on TV embarrassing, and some have even attacked me personally calling me ‘perverse’,” she said.

“Being pregnant is one of the most natural things in the world and I’m not going to hide it. I’ll go off air when I’m ready.”
