Mike Bushell, 53, shared a funny Twitter snap while enjoying the great outdoors in “torrential rain”. The BBC Breakfast sports reporter, who is part of the Strictly Come Dancing 2019 line-up, donned a snorkel and mask to brave the wet weather conditions. In the photo, Mike can be seen kneeling down in a muddy puddle on a camp site while wearing snorkelling gear. The journalist wore a pair of fitted black shorts for the occasion and opted to go without a shirt.
All part of my Strictly training.
Flaunting his physique, Mike pretended to swim in the picture as he was hit with a sudden downpour.
Explaining his antics, the BBC favourite captioned the photo: “When camping in the August torrential rain, past experience has taught me to take a snorkel and mask.”
The Strictly hopeful went on to jokingly reveal his move was essential to his training for the dance competition.
He added: “All part of my @bbcstrictly training.”
Fans took to the comments section of Mike’s hilarious post to share their thoughts.
Commenting on the weather, one Twitter user wrote: “I believe you have experience of #BogSnorkelling. Meanwhile, I have socks on, the lights on and am a degree away to putting the heating on!! #summerweather.”
