Channel 4 Weather Man Liam Dutton Nails Barely Pronounceable Welsh Place Name

Watch This Channel 4 Weatherman Boss "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch"

Channel 4 weather forecaster Liam Dutton was tested during a broadcast when tasked to pronounce Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

Luckily he stayed cool, calm and collected when articulating the name of the Anglesey village and won the appraisal of viewers for doing so.

People flocked to social media to congratulate Dutton for absolutely nailing it:

Despite his efforts the presenter may have had a helping hand, as a graduate of Swansea University, he used to live in Wales:

Next time perhaps he'll try and pronounce Cefn y Dyniewyd, Moel Cynghorion or Blaenau Ffestiniog which are all other difficult to enunciate Welsh locations.

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch itself is a large village and community on the island of Anglesey, situated on the Menai Strait next to the Britannia Bridge and across the strait from Bangor.

The long form of the name was invented for promotional purposes in the 1860s and with its 58 characters it is the longest place name in Europe and the second longest official one-word place name in the world.
