Weekend Today hosts were left shocked when none but Aussie A-lister Chris Hemsworth interrupted the weather forecast report.
The hosts crossed over to Lauren Phillips, reporting live from a field in remote Scone, NSW, to get the weather of the day – but within seconds Phillips was joined by one of Australia’s biggest stars stumbling into frame.
For the day, Hemsworth reeled through the national weather, while Maddern and Wilkins seemed to be absolutely gobsmacked:
“You’ve made my job looking very easy there – would you like to take over?” Phillips asked the star. It’s unclear how the reporter managed to arrange the superstar cameo – but she did reveal during their chat that she’s been living in Hemsworth’s hometown of Byron Bay for the past 10 weeks.

As Phillips and her new friend signed off, Maddern still couldn’t quite believe what had just happened.
“Dickie, you’re the one who usually comes up with the big names on this show, but you have been TRUMPED. What about that? Chris Hemsworth. Did that just happen? He just read the weather on Weekend Today. My year made. They said 2020 was bad, no it’s not. I’m a bit hot!”
