Sally Williams gets high for weather forecast

An ITV News London reporter made history this morning by becoming the first person ever to report the weather from atop the London Eye, 135m in the air.

The bold stunt took place after Sally Williams was dared to take on the challenge by Mission Impossible actor and stunt lover Tom Cruise at the movie’s premiere in June.

On Tuesday morning, Sally Williams achieved a remarkable feat, becoming only the 9th person in history to stand on top of the London Eye. This extraordinary accomplishment places her amongst an elite group of trailblazers that includes national treasures Sir Mo Farah, Sir Geoff Hurst, and even the legendary Father Christmas himself.

Sally stood outside of the pod for 20 minutes at 7 a.m., presenting the weather forecast to Londoners as the sun rose over the stunning backdrop of the London skyline. The awe-inspiring stunt was made possible through the support of the London Eye team, who embraced Sally’s ambitious challenge set by one of the most famous men in Hollywood.

The assignment began when Sally Williams asked Tom Cruise to choose between her own “mission impossible” from two high-octane experiences, the daring London Eye stunt, or a challenge to present the weather whilst speeding down the Thames in a speedboat, during a red carpet interview at the London Premiere for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One.

Reflecting on her exhilarating ride, Sally Williams:

“Standing on top of the London Eye was an incredible experience that I’ll cherish forever. It was an honour to bring the weather to Londoners from such an iconic location. I’m happy to be able to tell Tom: Mission Accomplished!”
